The Ridgeway – the oldest hike

The Ridgeway – the oldest hike
It’s that time of year again, when the snowdrops have gone and the daffodils are beginning, when the sun shines between showers and it’s time to get the hiking boots out of the cupboard again. Time for the Ridgeway, at its best in spring. The Ridgeway is probably the oldest track in England....

Art in the Mountains

Art in the Mountains
Griffis Sculpture Park is nestled high up in the mountains in the town of Ashford Hollow, N.Y, about an hours drive from Niagara, making it a great day trip. The sign pointing up into the hills is easy to miss, and the roads which eventually lead to the sculpture park, twist and turn, making it easy...

Going Green: The Best Hiking Spots in Niagara

Going Green: The Best Hiking Spots in Niagara
There is a much quieter side of Niagara that not a lot of visitors get a chance to see. Sure, seeing the Falls is well worth braving the crowds, it is a magnificent site, but Niagara’s hiking trails stand in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of Niagara Falls or Niagara on the Lake in the summertime....

Trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

Trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal
The Annapurna Circuit is one of the most popular treks in Nepal – perhaps in the world – despite the fact it takes three weeks to complete, if you’re lucky. The 300 km circuit follows ancient trade routes between Nepal and Tibet that have been in use for well over 1,000 years. This region...

It’s great up north!

It’s great up north!
I’m a southerner. The north, for me, begins at Peterborough – that’s about an hour by train from London. But because I’m a keen hiker, I do know the north of England quite well. There are superb long distance walks; the Pennine Way, the Coast to Coast, the Three Peaks of Yorkshire. Roseberry...

Hiking the Great Wall of China

Hiking the Great Wall of China
If you’re traveling to northern China, you probably want to check out the Great Wall – you, along with hordes of other tourists. In Beijing most tourists head to Badaling, the most accessible (and crowded) section of the Great Wall, which has also been extensively renovated – if you’re...

The Thames Path

The Thames Path
The Thames is a never-ending source of fascination for anyone who lives in London. It may well be the London river – but it’s also the river that runs through Oxford, through Henley, and all the way to the North Sea past Gravesend and the Isle of Grain. It links charming old-world villages...

Daytrip to Carefree and Cave Creek

What Path will you take? Located in Carefee, Arizona (note the town name), this sign always makes me chuckle.  Do you have what it takes to drive down Bloody Basin Road or will you chicken out and simply take Tranquil Trail? Considering that other street names in Carefree are more in tune with it’s...
