We did it!

This website has been designed to record our walking activities along with those of our friends who care to join us. We are an amiable and enthusiastic couple of walkers who like to try and push ourselves just a little bit harder than is strictly necessary! 


This can be seen by the Marilyn challenge that we  set for our combined sixtieth birthdays. Our other walking experiences have included long distance paths such as the Coast to Coast, Cleveland Way, Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, West Highland Way and Cumbria Way. We are also members of a local walking group with whom we have completed (amongst others) – The Shropshire Way, Offa’s Dyke, White Peak Way and the Three Castles Monmouthshire.

During the last 40 odd years we have walked most of the Lake District, a number of Welsh mountains and a little bit of Scotland.

But at long last we have ventured forth from our native shores. Now added to our list of walks, we can now boast the Tour Du Mont Blanc, completed 2014: the walkers Haute Route, a trek from Chamonix to Zermatt in 2015, the Alta Via 1 in the Dolomites in 2016 and the Alta Via 2 also in the Dolomites in 2017. Along with the Alta Via’s we have also achieved a long standing ambition to climb  2 Via Ferrata’s, the Monte Paterno and Brigata Tridentina.

Where to next? We are scratching our heads and puzzling over the maps. I hope you will continue to enjoy our travels and blogs, in the meantime :

Travel well and enjoy the trip 🙂
