In July we went on holiday in Scotland and visited Iona. It was as lovely as I remembered.

So, the other weekend Andrew and I went to the Lakes and did some walking. As usual, as you can see, it rained! Anyway, he made a very exciting video about it and I’m included! Check it out here.

Canada highlights

Sorry folks but I just have to share some more random photos from our recent Canada holiday that @andrewbowden has been posting on Flickr. Breakfast at Templeton’s in Vancouver. The MOST DELICIOUS EVER! Tree hugging in Vancouver’s Stanley Park: The view from Grouse Mountain: The light after the rain in Kamloops, shining down on the […]

I’ve just got back from holiday in Canada, my first time ever in that country. We headed to Vancouver and then the Canadian Rockies, which needless to say were amazing. In Vancouver probably the most incredible sight I saw was this: It’s an oak tree! On a tower! ***IT’S BLOWING MY MIND!*** Seriously… I could […]

A story about hiking boots

I want to post about how great Berghaus hiking boots are. I love them! First of all, a bit of background. These are my old boots (before and after being cleaned!). They’re Brasher ones. I must have had them for about, ooh, fifteen years or something like that. I’ve done a lot in them. See, […]

My Trip to 1947 Youth Hostel Lakeland

Posted on 2 July 2009 in Walking

At the start of June I’d booked myself a trip to the Lakes, but apart from knowing that I was going to be using Youth Hostels to save costs, I wasn’t sure what to actually do with my walking when I got there. Should I just be spontaneous each day and just wander about following […]
