My 2015 goals fall into a few categories, for example, “financial freedom” and “fitness”, but the category I’m excited about the most (and which all other categories lead up to) is “adventure”! These are the big adventures that I hope to achieve this year:
The Ridgeway is a long distance footpath that runs runs from Overton Hill in Wiltshire (near Avebury) to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. It’s not far from my house, so I can bite this one off in long day walks. Aside from its proximity, this walk also appeals for its historical significance, the great views, well-markedness and gentle inclines! First 9 miles are done, just 78 left to go!
Munro-Bagging in Scotland
A Munro is a mountain in Scotland with a height of over 3000 feet – there are 282 of them! This trip is planned for the first week of May – I’ll be happy if we tick off three of them!
Pembrokeshire Coast Path
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path on the Wales coast “twists and turns its way through 186 miles of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in Britain.” This is part of the broader Wales Coast path that Gloria and I started last year. Estimated time to complete at a “relaxed pace” is 19 days. I might have to do this one in 2-3 stages.
Bike Tour in France
I want to get back to my bike touring roots. I’m thinking Southern France (inspired by Penny of Stopover Connections, and all the awesome people and things I love in that part of the world).
Have you got any grand plans for 2015? Tell me about it!
