Previous walks are:
The West Highland Way – Vicki, Rachel, Jane, Liz and Deb. Highlights were the food (we are the only people ever to do it and not lose weight. I was the only one to manage the full Scottish breakfast every day, though) and Loch Lomond. Also, some pretty spectacular foot injuries on one of my fellow travellers that were an interesting medical phenomenon.
The Welsh Walk – in company with Vicki, Rachel, Jane, Liz and Fran. Planned by Liz and me, with hopelessly optimistic views of how far we could travel – highlights were disappearing down a hole in the Rhinog mountains and being yelled at by all of my friends, and Liz and me being eyed very aggressively by Welsh Black cows.
The Camino di Santiago di Compostela – an amazing walk on the old pilgrimage route. Highlights were making friends with Jon, and seeing the wonderful cathedrals en route. Best of all was Fiona singing “Patricia the Stripper” around a campfire to a bunch of bemused Galician farmers.
The Coast to Coast walk – by myself, but met many great people along the way. Highlights were the sense of achievement and the wonderful views of Roseberry Topping. Lowlight was being trapped overhanging a river by three very frisky cows, the same week that a vet was killed by cows in one of the fields I had to traverse.
The Ridgeway – a gentle amble through the English countryside with Jon and some of his friends – particularly pleasing was the Chocolate Shop in Wendover – we managed to visit that several times.
Current walks in progress are:
Peddars Way – been doing this for some time in company with Sally, Trevor, Rita, Chris, Robin and his family, Tom, Ann and Graham – looking forward to finally getting over the line. Castle Acre is a great stop on this one.
Offa’s Dyke – only done 3 days of this, but love it already. Lowlight was a dodgy knee ( I shall be shovelling in Glucosamine supplements to keep them bendy), highlights were the views from the Kymin over Monmouth.
The Wessex Ridgeway – absolutely spectacular autumn colours near Marlborough.
