The CWT was tough, not what I expected, but so spectacular it was really worth it!
After our last leg of the CWT (Ullapool to Inchnadamph) we had decided to take a bit of a break. We spent a few weeks hanging out with family. While at Mellon Udrigle on the west coast with a large crew of cousins we spotted a weather window of two dry-ish days so we decided to go for it. We knew there was a bus from Durness back to Kinlochbrieve […]
Earlier this week we finished up a long weekend in Cornwall, exploring a few of the cute little towns and ports. For the first few days we were housesitting a young puppy named Letty and spent our days cruising around the villages near our housesit, swimming and walking from Cove to Cove. We really struggled with exploring towns with a 6month old dog in tow, mostly because of the innumerable […]
On Wednesday night we headed to Dartmoor for our first overnight hike of the trip. We had a night free between housesits as we headed south from Hampshire to Cornwall and what better way to fill it in!

Unfortunately my ankles have been playing up – so definitely going to have to sort that out before we start hiking!In a bit […]
Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons, everything in between – it is all hills! Big hills, long hills, steep hills, country hill, urban hills and then you get to the mountains. For the past week I’ve been riding with Will and Ollie from Gloucester in England, down to the bridge over the Severn and up through every single hill to Bangor (next to Menai) (but not in the shire). To say it […]
So the past week has been a little crazy. I got back from Iceland on Tuesday morning and took a taxi straight to the bike shop to get my back wheel fixed. By that afternoon my wallet was substantially lighter, my bike was even heavier, and I was ready to get going again! In the morning after a little faffing around to buy a new pump and some chain lube […]
