Later this week I'm doing my latest challenge to raise money for charity. I was meant to be doing a 10k next month for Ty Hafan, but the event has been cancelled, and in all honesty I'm nowhere near fit enough to run 10k. So, when Ty Hafan announced they were doing a virtual challenge … Continue reading Virtual Welsh Three Peaks
This is the third of Reynolds' books about his walking trips following from his travels on the South West Coast Path and the West Highland Way. Reynolds' funny writing, clear enjoyment in walking and my own love of nature were a big inspiration in my adding "Walk the Wales Coastal Path" to my bucket list, … Continue reading Book Review: The Nomad En Suite by Stephen Reynolds
This is the second of Reynolds' walking books I've read, having enjoyed Just Off for a Walk earlier this year, which inspired me to add "walk the entire Wales Coast Path" to my bucket list. This book, as with that, is a memoir of a walking trip, this time the West Highland Way, a 100 mile … Continue reading Book Review: Walk Sleep Repeat by Stephen Reynolds

Last year, I really started trying to walk more. I've found that it has really helped both … Continue reading Why a Quarter Marathon?
One of the items on my bucket list is to raise £1 million for charity. It's a big ask and so I'm approaching it as a long term goal that I'm slowly chipping away at. Last year, thanks to the Sport Relief walking challenges and the Children in Need Countryfile Ramble along with a few … Continue reading SPONSOR ME!!!: Quarter Marathon Walk
Sorry to bother you, reader, but I'm taking part in Children in Need's Countryfile Ramble and I just wanted to ask if you could sponsor me. Children in Need is the BBC's charity that raises money for, well, the name kinda explains it all. The charity does great work helping thousands of disadvantaged kids all … Continue reading Sponsor me?
On Monday, a much anticipated package arrived at my house. It was something I'd been waiting for since the week before and straight away I tore it open. Inside was a shiny medal, awarded to me for walking over 100 miles during the month of October. I am incredibly proud of this medal, here's a … Continue reading Medal, Medal, Medal!
