With lockdown easing it is presenting the opportunity to break out of the city and embrace the countryside. A couple of weekends ago my sister suggested going on a country walk during the may bank holiday. My first inclination would have been to hit the coast but with rail works going on I had to … Continue reading Escape the City: Walking the Winchester Circuit
I’ve come to appreciate the none city environment more through the pandemic and lockdown. The ability to escape the city (that I still adore) was taken away from us for so long over the last year that when during breaks of lockdown we were able to go out exploring I relished the chance to walk … Continue reading For the Love of Parks
It’s been a while since my last post. Life got in the way. It’s certainly been a mixed bag of experiences and emotions over the last few months.

This Saturday early evening like last week we went for a walk to stretch the legs and … Continue reading Day 80: how does one return to society?
I've been a bit lacking on diary posts of late, I’ve been distracted by work related things. My company are unfortunately having to make redundancies to survive so we are going through a consultation period. It’s sad but I guessed it would come to this. Not sure any travel company will be coming out of … Continue reading Day 79: Green fingers and ice cream
