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.
