The Anglesey Coastal Path 2014 – an introduction

Only two and a bit weeks to go, and not much training going on, but hopefully I’ve been walking enough over the last month or two to see me through. My knees continue to worry me and\if I complete the coastal path I will see what state they are in afterwards and where I stand [...]

California and Pennsylvania in May 2011

I decided that one of this years long walks will be a gentler affair, deep in the quintessential English countryside, The Cotswold Way …..all Larkrise to Candleford type landscape.
