Nepal: On The Trail 1 – Annapurna Circuit Trek (pI)

These are some photos from my trek around the Annapurna Circuit Trek in May of this year.  

Playing with the new camera – along the canal to Hebden Bridge.

This week has been tough. I've wanted to keep up my exercise routine as well as having to work long hours at work in order to complete a few projects before I am on leave. As I write this I am really feeling it and could do with just relaxing. I've managed to lose around … Continue reading Playing with the new camera – along the canal to Hebden Bridge.

A walk from home to Tod(morden)

This weekend I had originally made plans to go to Leeds in the evening and then meet friends in the evening in Todmorden. However, I got the wrong end of the stick and ended up double booked. A table was booked for one of the engagements so I chose that one as well as it … Continue reading A walk from home to Tod(morden)

Pennine Way: Haworth to Malham for the weekend April 2015

Mike and I both decided more multi day hiking was needed in preparation for future trips and just for general fitness. However, we're both away shortly for admittedly active trips, but it's going to be important to try and keep things like this up. I recently bought a rowing machine to help with cardio midweek … Continue reading Pennine Way: Haworth to Malham for the weekend April 2015

Two Days Along the Dales Way

Mike and I were always planning on walking over Easter, but Mike wasn't too keen on difficult terrain (i.e. off piste etc) so I suggested the Dales Way between Ilkley and Dent. After an early start we got to Ilkley and the nice man inside Betty's Cafe let us buy a couple of Simnel Fat … Continue reading Two Days Along the Dales Way

Great Shunner Fell, Yorkshire Dales; March 2015

Well it's been ages and that's because of being unwell, very busy at work and the way the chips have fallen. I went hiking this weekend which I will blog about in a few days, but I thought I better write up the below walk first. For the last three years I've booked a cottage … Continue reading Great Shunner Fell, Yorkshire Dales; March 2015

Two Days hiking in Patterdale, The Lake District National Park

Note : Apologies for the quality of the photographs in this post. I had my compact camera whose focus motor went wrong and then failed during the trip. My phone camera is absolutely awful and all in all they don’t look great! First Day I got up very early on Saturday morning in order to … Continue reading Two Days hiking in Patterdale, The Lake District National Park

Cape Wrath Trail Plans

A friend and I have decided to walk (some of) the Cape Wrath Trail; I would like to do the whole path, but with trips to Japan and Georgia taking up significant amounts of holiday time we've elected to pare down the route and have decided to walk from Strathcarron to Cape Wrath. The genesis … Continue reading Cape Wrath Trail Plans

Snow covered Ingleborough from Little Ingleborough

I'd not been to the Yorkshire Dales National Park for quite some time - I think it will have been August last year - and I was keen to return. I'd planned last week, but it wasn't to be. This last week I have checked the forecasts hoping for fresh dumps of snow (the Dales … Continue reading Snow covered Ingleborough from Little Ingleborough

Hebden Bridge (yep, again) to Sowerby Bridge

I originally intended to get out to the Dales this weekend, but my friend and I were planning on cooking Burns Supper for a few folk and the timings would have not worked for people wanting to eat food before midnight. That's happened before... I thought about a few alternatives, but given the fact we … Continue reading Hebden Bridge (yep, again) to Sowerby Bridge
