I want to do the Tour du Mont Blanc. Don't know if it's gonna happen or not yet.


Still arguing with the wife, who says it would be selfish to spend 400 on a hiking trip for just me.


She made a big mistake a few years ago though, when she told me she admires that I tend to just do what I want and deal with the consequences afterwards. Because even though there are consequences, I've still done what I wanted to do. Said she wishes she could be like that. So I'll probably just do it anyway.


I'm nice like that.

I'm wondering about wandering and wonder where I might wander if I wander while I wonder.

Worth every penny and more! Only 400, does that include your fare there and back?

Yep! The campsites I've looked at are cheap. Return flights 85 and a couple hundred euros for food/beer.

To complete a 100km walk (not sure where yet) in 24 hours. My current maximum is 32km which was an easy bimble locally.

Hoping to head to Grindlewald in September. Possibly another week on the SWCP or Welsh Coast Path. I'm currently working on the route of the Derbyshire 8 Peaks walk I've invented 😃

Tour du Mont Blanc, 85 for a flight, not bad at all, to Geneva? I set myself a budget for that walk too but I got so much in the eating, drinking and enjoying myself on route I went way over the top!

At 6 for a beer at most Refuges and Auberges, it wasn't hard to go over budget or at least I did  :D

I'm not a big drinker. Only be having 1 or 2 at the end of some days. As for food if my budget gets tight I'll be getting paid again about 2 days in so that'll help. And I can always go stingy and get food to cook myself from the supermarkets. Even when there are other options.

There is a charity walk in Tanzania in October that I would LOVE to go, but have to pay for the flights and accommodation on top of the raised money and it gets quite expensive... still thinking about it though, I may make a silly move and splash my savings and just go!

We`re planning a trip to Scotland in September. Starting with Arran and then doing some island hopping moving towards north-western isles. So far the plan is to visit Islay, Jura, Isle of Mull with Iona and maybe Colonsay. Very excited and hoping for decent weather.

Not to waste time if I can possibly avoid it. I've got me big toes wrapped up after nails taken off and it'll take about 6 weeks evidently before they heal. So as soon as I can, I just want to get out and WALK! If it's local, like the Wirral way, or start a long dreamt of "get to know you" with the smaller outlying fells of the Lakes. Then that'd be brilliant. I think there's something special about the old ways; and I camped right by the Ridgeway and Icknield Street last Summer, and I want to walk a bit further on those paths. That would be a good year for me; and if I can manage to see more of our country then it would be a great year.

More of the Anglesey Coast path, the East coast around the Flamborough Head/Bempton cliffs area, Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia for a couple of walking weekends.....and Stoupa (Greece) for 2 weeks for some walking, snorkeling and kayaking in September 8)


That'll do for starters :D

I'm not sure at the moment, I had planned a ski tour in Northern Sweden but that didn't come off. So I'm now toying with the idea of going to Iceland but I hear it's eye-wateringly expensive.
