Nepal 2018 with Camps International and King’s Al Barshar

8-15.2.18 In this job I am extremely fortunate that I get to visit far flung corners of the globe and have amazing experiences with some fantastic groups, but of all the countries that I have visited in recent years nowhere has got under my skin like Nepal. Obviously it is an incredibly beautiful country and

Winter walking in the Cairngorms

1-4.2.18 Walking with; Al There can be few finer outdoor experiences available in the UK than Winter walking in the Cairngorms. These imposing Scottish mountains get more than the Lion’s share of British snow and in addition to the Winter walking there are plenty of snow sport enthusiasts as well as Winter climbers to be

A walk from Watendlath

25.1.18 Walking with; Martin,Howard and Banksy I first met Martin when we were representatives on the Hill walking committee of the British Mountaineering Council.

We comprised a truly international group with team members coming

Yorkshire 3 Peaks with Action for Children

16.9.17 Walking with; Action for Children challenge team The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is one of my favourite challenge events, it’s tough, pretty much the distance of a full marathon, but it’s doable and it makes sense as a challenge, it doesn’t feel contrived. So when the team from Action for Children contacted me to say

A very varied week

Well, after some well deserved post-Ecuador RNR, things have really picked up again and we have a busy and varied week. It started with a couple of days in the Peak District with Clint and Paul who were visiting from the USA and wanted to do some walking to offset their intake of Steak and

A Lake District overnighter

22-23.8.17 Walking with; Nathan It’s seemed like ages since I had managed to make some time for personal walking and with Nathan, who has long supported Come walk with me UK, preparing for his Mountain Leader assessment my return from Ecuador seemed like a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone and get
