Walking The Avon Valley Path

It’s always great to have the opportunity to explore an area that you are unfamiliar with, there’s the sense of adventure and the excitement of learning something new. Here at Come walk with me UK we have become increasingly excited by walking long distance footpaths, whilst we still love the buzz of scaling a mountain

Walking the Anglesey Coastal Path

Leg three of the Land of My Fathers project was the Anglesey Coastal Path, a long distance path in it’s own right that covers 130 miles of mostly coastal walking.

I don’t know about anybody else but here at Come walk with me UK we have been starting to develop signs of Cabin Fever lately. It’s not that we haven’t enjoyed some fantastic local walks, we have discovered a lot of beautiful places on our doorstep, but lately the urge to spread our wings a

North Wales walks

The weekend that Storm Ciara decided to pay a visit was the week we decided to head to North Wales to scope out a few new routes for clients who wanted something different from Snowdonia. Over the course of the weekend we got thoroughly wind blasted and witnessed flooding and torrential rain but also managed

Mount Elgon via the Sipi Falls Trail

In addition to having the right set of skills and an always sunny disposition there are moments of serendipity in freelance life that can end up leading in completely unexpected directions. I was perusing the Freelance Outdoor Instructors Facebook page one day when I saw a request for information from anyone who had climbed Elgon,

Jumbles Reservoir and Turton Tower

One of the things that we are hoping to do next year is run a series of shorter, “close to home” midweek walks and in my attempt to get out and about even more this year doing the reccies for some of these has been very enjoyable. I am continually amazed at how many great
