Moo helps my Moo-tain Sales!

I ventured down to Shoreditch High Street today in order to collect my new business cards.  It was a fun adventure through East London's urban vistas and as usual there was much to see.  Pootling along on the Docklands' Light Railway (DLR) from Beckton is one of my favourite outings, passing through Docklands and City Airport, before boarding the 'Overground' for two stops to Shoreditch High Street.  Many of you might be appalled by such revelations, but to me there is as much interest within the realms of the urban as there is within the mighty architecture of the hills.

"An E-mail from America"

In the latter part of last year I spent a few nights in The Lake District.  A couple of nights at the Wasdale Head Inn was pure magic in an environment that is often the envy of many.  I managed a long day walk, but 12 miles on the fells was experienced predominantly in fog, high winds and for the most part in rain.  Having said that I had a great day, meeting no-one over this distance and comforted by the knowledge that I'd be returning to the warmth of one of the UK's most iconic inns.  One anecdote from my time away is recounted here, it was another wonderful story of how Tubular Fells has brought me so much joy!

The Romance of the Hills

Love of the fells For many the Lake District and Scotland are not just places to go walking or to be at one with the outdoors, but on many hundreds of occasions it's also been the start of a blossoming relationship.  Whether it's the fresh air, the vigorous exercise, the majesty of the hills, some post walk refreshments or perhaps a combination of them all, the Lake District and Scotland have certainly given their blessing to a fair share of loving couples out there!
