A significant passion of mine is travel, both in the UK and overseas. I view this as a key part of our children’s education, as well as deriving enormous pleasure myself from experiencing different cultures and cuisines.

I have a deep seated fascination with wildlife.

Don't Look Up

The Brecon 3 Peaks

The Brecon Three Peaks was a long overdue trip to South Wales, and an opportunity to tick-off another 3 Peaks.

The Ranger Path

As such a busy route, the Ranger Path was the last of the major paths up Snowdon to be ticked off the list. Not the finest of walks or weather, but I did learn a lot about the menopause.

Snowdon – Rhyd Ddu

A 30 foot wee, mountain rescue, and nearly falling to my death were some of the highlights of my Snowdon walk up the Rhyd Ddu path.
