Climbed Ben Nevis four years ago!

WOW! Where has the time gone? Four years ago today, Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level. Still can’t believe that we both did it!!

Happy #NationalBestFriendsDay 2021

Since it’s #NationalBestFriendsDay, I could only choose one “person” and that is, of course is… Cooper!!!!!

We have been too many great places together over the years, including… Isle of Skye, Lake District, walked the whole way from London to Birmingham and much more… He really is, a man’s best friend!

What is going on? Not posted a single photo this month!

What is going on? Not posted a single photo of myself this month! Just not been feeling it, at all this month. Since one of my best of my best mates passed away. Just not really been in best place. He was only 40, which is just, way, way to young to die! Jamie, you will always be very much missed! xx

Finished the End to End cycle 11 years ago!

Would you believe it?!?!? It was a whole 11 years ago today, that I finished doing the End to End cycle. A cycle covering 990.30 miles, which of course took me from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

Even after 11 years, would still rate it has one of the best things, that I’ve ever done! Really hope, that one day, I get to it again!

Here are, just some of my favourite photos from the cycle.
