2023- A year in review

Well, here we are at the end of another year and what a cracker it’s been here at Come walk with me UK. We have spent 2023 exploring walks across the world, leading D of E groups, trekking the long distance trails of Scotland and adventuring in new destinations. We couldn’t have done it without

Reflections on a failure…..or was it?

Having walked the West Highland Way with a Thistle Trekking team last week, I had decided to try and continue along the Great Glen Way to Inverness before meeting another team to walk the Affric Kintail Way. It made sense to me, linked the two routes nicely, and would allow me a little time to

Walking the Affric Kintail Way

Scotland is a country that has no shortage of spectacular scenery and breathtaking long distance footpaths.

It’s the whole “end of the world” feel

Kenya 2022 with Camps International

I am sat perched on a rock under a star spangled African sky, the air is cool now the sun has dropped behind the distant range of hills separated by an acacia studded red earth plain. I can see the flickering tongues of flame of the campfire and somewhere in the distance I can hear

A recent round-up

I am pretty sure that around this time of year every year I write a post musing on the infrequency of my blog updates and here, in 2022, we are again. We have entered the “silly season” where life in the outdoor industry is manic…..but we love manic! Covid was a difficult time for the

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
