Walking

I thought it would be useful to gather our stories into a slightly more coherent index than the archives, categories or tags, which I find a bit difficult to navigate.

We like walking. Have you noticed? We do day walks, overnight hikes and longer hikes.

Our walking photos can be found here.

We don’t write up all of our walks; many are mundane though fun yomps through regularly visited places (e.g. New Forest). Or we did not have anything very interesting to say about the walk except: we went here and walked some and then had lunch and then walked some more. Riveting stuff. Or, sometimes, we just plain forgot to write it up.  Nonetheless, here are the ones we did write about:

Australia

The Overland Track, Dec 2006: an 8 day hike in Tasmania.
