Can’t wait to see Nick again at the end of the month! We always have so much fun!! Like you can tell, from these photos! 🙂
Looking for something to watch on the BBC iPlayer? Then I would really recommend that you watch The Storm That Saved a City.
On 15 January 1968, thousands of homes were damaged when 100-miles-an-hour winds tore through the central belt. Twenty people lost their lives amid devastating scenes. But the storm shook up Scotland’s biggest city in another way, too. It inspired a rethink about Glasgow’s tenements. For 100 years, the city had been destroying unfit houses for new ones – but it wasn’t solving the problem. It took the storm, a group of young architects and some strong-willed residents to save their city from the bulldozer. And it brought forward the transformation of Glasgow – from Britain’s biggest slum to the cultural capital of Europe.
I know this is a bit sad, but watching my, home City of Glasgow, turn into one of the best City’s in the world, had me in had me in tears! I am not joking, it really did!
Here are some more photos from my first wetsuit walk of the year!
You can check out the route, I took over at www.strava.com/activities/1336139315
Just going for a walk in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, while wearing a wetsuit! It’s one way to keep warm, during a Scottish winter!
Yep it’s only the first day of 2018 and I’ve already been out walk while wearing a wetsuit! Of course, I am wearing the 2XU A:1 Active wetsuit, since it’s the only wetsuit, that I have with me!
Oh and I put the wetsuit on before setting off! So in other words, I did 30 miles of driving, with a 2 mile walk in the middle! So I was nice and warm, by the time, I got back to the house!
WOW! It’s 2018 already! So here is my first vlog of the New Year, filmed on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Yep in back in the 2XU A:1 Active wetsuit!
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.
Here are some amazing photos, from a truly amazing walk!!
