Travel

It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and, if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might get swept off to. J.R.R. Tolkien

These are my writings and photos from my travels out and about around the United Kingdom and beyond.

I’ve Climbed A Mountain!!!
22/03/2010Hiking Lifelist Wales
On Saturday 20th March 2010 me and my brother-in-law set off from Pen-y-pass along the PYG track all the way to the summit of Snowdon. After climbing on, over and through rocks, mud, scree, shale, snow and ice we eventually made it to the top.
Back at the Hotel!
20/03/2010Hiking Wales
We have arrived back at the hotel safe and sound. Slight deviation from the plan due to weather conditions and ended up walking over 20 miles.

20/03/2010Hiking Wales
We did it! We actually did it!!! We climbed snowdon!!! We are currently stood on the summit of Snowdon 1,085 m (3,560 ft) above sea level and the highest peak in England and Wales.
It’s time to run to the hills!

Its early on a Saturday morning in Llanberis. Its wet. Its windy. Its foggy. Its cold. Its not nice!
Cheddar Gorge x2
14/03/2010Hiking South West
This is our final training session before we tackle Snowdon. We have once again chosen Cheddar Gorge as climbing up the steep gradients of the gorge is the best local practice we can get. If Snowdon is like this then we should be OK.
Cheddar Gorge Extended
07/03/2010Hiking South West
An extended tour of Cheddar gorge after a bright idea "let's go that way" and get lost. Anyway we found a few new vantage points for some photos less often seen.
Cheddar Gorge AND Crook Peak Walk
28/02/2010Hiking South West
As the time to climb Snowdon draws closer (20th March!) we've decided to increase our walks to at least 10 miles. To start off with we have done the Cheddar circular walk followed by Crook Peak as we know the terrain and what to expect.
Swineford Circular Walk
21/02/2010Hiking South West
Another brisk walk, this time on a Sunday morning. 5.2 miles added to our 4.1 gorge climb yesterday. We started in Swindford and walled around a few villages and several farms on a circular route.
Cheddar Gorge Walk
20/02/2010Hiking South West
With our Snowdon expedition rapidly approaching (4 weeks time) we think it's time to start building up our walking. Having started on Brent Knoll, then Crook Peak, the challenging gorge walk wasn't too bad (apart from the mud) and will be good for climbing experience.
Crook Peak Walk
13/02/2010Hiking South West
Part two of our mountain climbing training is walking up Crook Peak in Somerset. Crook Peak is much taller than Brent Knoll we climbed last week and the distance walked was far greater.
