First of all got to say a big thanks to Shaun for doing all the driving today!! And of course to his Dad, for letting him use his car! Got to say that he’s a great driver! Felt safe 100% of the time!

We all had amazing time! Even the crap weather did not stop us, from making it all the way to the top! Extra well done to Shaun for climbing his first mountain. Let’s hope, he’s now got the bug and that, I talk him into doing Scafell Pike. Which is the highest mountain in England.

And of course, also well done to James! Who was, feeling it from the off! Then like me, he’s more into cycling than walking! We all made it, to the top and back down safe. Which is the main thing!

Just wish the weather had been better! But that just makes me really, want to do it again! Hoping we get better views the next time!!

You can check out the route we took at connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/1680979597 and also www.strava.com/activities/944940040.

So pleased! I will be climbing Snowdon before the end of the month! Well unless we have very bad weather on the day! So that will be the highest Mountain in Wales done.

Then it will just leave me with Scafell Pike, the highest Mountain England (Still to sort out a date). And of course Ben Nevis, in Scotland! Which I am doing in July with Nick!!

I love my home City of Glasgow! Going to make sure when, I am next up in Scotland in May. I spend a day walking around my favourite city. Not had a good look around in a long time!

That’s me back in England after a great drive back home! Went on many roads, I’ve ever been on before! Don’t ask me which way, I went. Since I have no idea at all!

But I some how did end up at Dent railway station, which happens to be the highest railway station in England!

Here are some photo from the drive. Was hoping to take many more! But it was raining most of the time!!! 🙁

That sure was an amazing holiday in Cyprus! My third time on the island. The more, I go the more I love it!

Just still hot fully use to how hot it gets, even in September. So was hotter than 28C every day. Even at night it was not much cooler.

Once I get back to England on Thursday. I will make sure, I more lots of photos to my website. Of course, I’ve already posted many to Facebook, Twitter etc…

Just hoping, if the weather is not to bad in Scotland. I get some miles in on my bike. Can’t remember the last time, I did any cycling in my adopted home country.
