Great Glen Cycleway – Day 4

4 Nov , 2010  

Day 4 Firstly you may note that the photographic/video accompaniment for today does not follow true to the previous couple of days.  This is largely due to the sheer volume of water falling from the sky onto my head.  Indeed, not only was it monsoon season in Drumnadrochit, to further challenge me a gale force […]

Walking & Cycling in Catalonia

20 Oct , 2010  

Like so many of us I thought I knew Spain.  Of course I recognised that there was more to the country than the various “Costas” that hold such an enduring appeal for sun-lovers, but I never imagined the culture and diversity of landscape that I was about to encounter.  I was off to Catalonia – […]

The Joys of Solo Walking in the Lake District

24 Sep , 2010  

I have just returned from a wonderful few days in the Lake District where I enjoyed the marvellous hospitality of some of our lovely B&B’s and hotels in this area and a few days walking. However, what really made this holiday is the people I met along the way! I was keen to test out […]
