Blencathra - Lake District 2016

Blencathra is one of Wainwright’s best half-dozen and our campsite was right at the foot of this beauty, so we decided to have a look. 637 more words

WALKING

Wettest Weekend in Wales

This weekend I was lucky enough to spend 2 nights camping in the Welsh valleys, specifically Beddgelert in Snowdonia.

The aim was to hike to the summit of Mount Snowdon (invested in hiking boots and everything), but unfortunately the weather didn’t quite allow- 5 hours and 2 small children was already going to be a challenge, but in torrential rain near impossible. 235 more words

B and B in the Lakes

Before I left New Zealand, I traveled the length and breadth of the two main islands.  From Bluff at the southernmost point of the South Island, to Cape Reinga, the tip of the North Island, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean in a crash of opposing currents. 998 more words

A Taste of Spring

I’m loving the longer days, it gives a chance to get out in the hills more. The wild garlic is back and ready for picking. If picking in the wild it’s best to take just a couple of leaves from each plant. 212 more words

Walking the Queen Charlotte Track

The words ‘multi-day hike’ and ‘luxurious’ might seem an unlikely combination, unless you are referring to the Queen Charlotte Track.

You can do it the hard way, lugging everything you need and staying in camping grounds, or you can arrange things so your baggage travels by water taxi each day and arrives well before you do at a resort featuring comfy beds, hot showers, a licensed restaurant and maybe even a hot spa to ease those aching legs. 3,095 more words
