There of course, could only be one favourite walk of 2017! That would of course be the walk that, I did with Nick up Ben Nevis, which is the highest mountain in the British Isles!!
And just to show that we really did it! The route we took can be seen at www.strava.com/activities/1088565730.

Just to remind everyone, that the 9 series of Great British Railway Journeys starts tomorrow (Monday 1st January 2018) on BBC 2 at 6:30pm!
On his first journey follows in the footsteps of the new monarch for the new century, King Edward VII, from the grand estates of Norfolk to a bivouac on Brownsea Island. In this first episode, Michael takes a pot shot at the sport of kings at a country estate, where the king dallied with his mistress. He learns the ropes aboard an Edwardian wherry on the Norfolk Broads and joins variety performers to tap dance on Cromer Pier. In Cambridge, he investigates the student days of the young Prince of Wales and the novelist EM Forster, author of Howard’s End.
Driving in my 2XU A:1 Active wetsuit, well OK, I was not really driving while wearing my wetsuit! But it did make for a great title!
I took this photo, while coming up in Scotland on Saturday 23rd December 2017!
I am sure that next year, you can look forward to many, many more fun photos like this…
I know it’s not 2018 yet, but it’s getting very close indeed! So Happy New Year, for when 2018 does start in your part of the world!
