About this diary

I want to use this blog to promote hiking and make especially younger people aware how great this kind of activity is. You might call it hiking or going for a longer walk, but in any case, it’s a fantastic way to spend a day with a friend or group of friends. You’ve got enough time to catch up, you’re outdoors and you do something for your fitness without really noticing it.

It is also a tool for me to keep track of my hikes. In the beginning of 2014 I went on hike which was organised by a friend of mine, and throughout the trip I had the feeling that I had been there before. After a few more of these really irritating moments I concluded that I had but couldn’t remember with whom. That was the moment when I decided to start a hiking diary. (I could partly reconstruct the walks between 2010 and 2013 from pictures and train tickets that I found in the deep of my computer, cases and bags.) There are to many places out there to go on the same hike twice only because I lost the overview over my walks. UK has a lot to offer. And it’s not even far. Take the train out of London and within 30 minutes you’re in the middle of nowhere. The perfect spot to hike.

    Wow, that´s really great! Here everyone can see and read that the UK is worth to be hiked. Thank you for your work. Maybe, we could make a hike together, when I arrive in Great Britan 😉

    Hi Tasmanian traveller,
    thanks for stopping by. Yes, you’re absolutely right. I forget names of places very qickly, especially when they are Welsh :-). I use my search very frequently before I plan my next day hike to check if I have been to that place already that I have in mind… Here’s to the search and blog technology! 🙂

  3. One of the side benefits of blogging is that the record of where you have been and what you have thought, smelt and heard is always there – when your memory fails. I know with my walks along the Derwent River, I have delved into Tasmania’s early heritage, environmental issues, geology, flora and fauna, the visual arts, social history,and much much more – yet some of it I have already forgotten . But then I find the information again easily in my blog.Thank goodness for the easy technology and the Search function.
