How it all started

My love of walking really began in 2006 when I decided to raise money for the charity Breast Cancer Care and registered to do an overseas trek in China in April 2007.  I did plan on doing this on my own but after talking to my family my sister Pat and two niece-in-laws Claire Campbell and Claire Miles, decided to join me. 

As none of us had ever done any strenuous walking before we made a conscious effort to start training by walking locally and in the beautiful hills of Northumberland, as often as possible but once we got to China realised that we had not done nearly enough! 

Over the next the next few weeks I will tell you about some of the treks I have been on over the years such as The Great Wall of China, the Escambray Mountains in Cuba and South Aftica then will tell you about some of my not so exotic walks locally and in Europe, so please keep an eye on me.
