Walking in Sandals. Review: Merrell All Out Blaze Sieve

As part of the Outdoor Bloggers Weekend earlier this summer, each of the bloggers who attended were gifted a pair of Merrell’s new All Out Blaze Sieve walking sandals to test. It was lovely to have the support of Merrell for our inaugural event, and as one of the organisers I was pleased that I was

Making the Most of Local Trails

I feel it is very important to explore where you live, and this year so far I have been making an effort to make use of the many local trails that I can find close to my own home. Lincolnshire may not be the most obvious choice for hiking, people tend to head to more well-known

My Introduction to Geocaching

I know quite a number of people who go out geocaching on a regular basis, and have always been intrigued about the whole thing. It’s one of those past times that has been on my list to try for a little while but I’ve not actually got around to it. I guess I liken it

Walking The Stephen Langton Trail

The Stephen Langton Trail is a newly devised walking route celebrating 800 years since the sealing of the Magna Carta. The 16.5 mile trail takes walkers from Langton-by-Wragby into Lincoln itself. I’ll let you read about the history over on the Visit Lincoln page dedicated to it, this post is all about the walking. Langton-by-Wragby

30 Days Wild – Days 8-14

Day 08 – Monday I was told when out cygnet spotting last week that there is a massive pike that lives in the bit of river one of the nests was on. So at lunch time I walked along to see if I could spot it swimming along. I didn’t. To be honest I have

A Picnic in my Kitchen: Not Doing the Lyke Wake Walk

I have had picnics in the rain before. I am a member of that family who would sit on the beach in our raincoats eating jam sandwiches and blue and white striped crisps, determined to enjoy our day by the sea whatever the weather. I would swim in the sea with the rain pouring down.

30 Days Wild – Days 1-7

Have you been inspired by The Wildlife Trusts to take part in the 30 Days Wild campaign? How have the first few days of 30 Days Wild gone for you? Rather than posting every day I thought I’d give you a taster of my wild activities every few days. Day 01 – Monday With a

Guest Post: Five of the Best Walking Trails in Europe

Today we are treated to a guest post by Rachel Campbell on one of my favourite topics – walking. Rachel considers five of the best walking trails in Europe. Be warned, this post make you want to travel!  We are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by vast, open landscapes and astonishing scenery in the UK and just across the

Tips for your Day Hike Pack

There are two types of people when it comes to packing for any kind of trip. The most common type, I think, are those who pack too much. An extra pair of pants, extra socks, extra food, extra shoes. I definitely include myself in that – for anything more than one night I tend to bring something home un-used. The

Walk to Work Week

How far do you live away from work? I live around 4.5 miles from the office, which on any normal day is a bit far to walk. But as I’m a) training for the Lyke Wake Walk and b) it’s walk to work week, I thought it was compulsory! Actually I admit I shall not be commuting

Exploring Bristol – Clifton Suspension Bridge

I strongly believe that adventure (today’s BEDM topic), is there to be found wherever you are and whatever you are doing. It is, after all, a state of mind rather than a verb with a written-in-stone definition.  When I was away for work recently the weather was gorgeous and with several hours to kill before sunset the last

Having a Moment. Doubting my Abilities.

On Monday I went for a walk. Nothing unusual about that per se, I like to walk, and being a bank holiday I had a whole day to partake in one of my favourite pastimes. Except on Monday the plan was to walk further than I have ever walked in one go – at least
