Annual Review

Annual review 2021

It’s the last blog post of 2021 so time to pictorially review some of the things I’ve done this year.

Not the first walk of the year, but my first walk in sunny weather was along the Thames in early April. I did a very similar route a couple of weeks later.
In May I walked the North Downs Way.
Later in May I made it out of London again for a 26 mile walk in the Chilterns.
And at the end of May I walked 75 miles in about 36 hours. The ice-cream each time I passed the lake was one of the highlights.
In July I passed through Leicestershire on the way to see friends so stopped at the site of the Battle of Bosworth.
A trip to Northumberland in July.
My now annual walk with my brother. This time, the Yorkshire Wolds Way.
In September I made my first trip abroad in almost two years with a visit to Vienna.
And then back again to Vienna in November.

And finally, an overseas trip that didn’t happen this year. I had planned to be in the USA this week until recent events happened. Anyway, here’s a photo from the last time I went in July 2018. Hopefully I can make it there in 2022!

Annual Review

Annual Review 2020

In what will now become a blog tradition (assuming I’m still blogging this time next year), I’m going to share some of the places I’ve been this year in pictorial format…

A wet walk across Salisbury in January (also the last photo before my phone died).
In March, I finished walking the 150 mile (242km) London Loop. It’s not the most exciting part of London, but it’s another walk finished.
A May bank holiday weekend out in Sussex (when the weather was nice and the lockdown restrictions had lifted sufficiently).
In July I walked the 66 mile (107 km) Vanguard Way, meeting the coast at the Seven Sisters where the weather was perfect.
In August I walked the 109 mile (175 km) Cleveland Way with my brother.
