      Lake District and Keswick

      May 8, 2022 in England ⋅ ☁️ 57 °F

      We left Wales today and stopped outside of Conwy to visit the Bodnant Garden which was founded in 1874 and developed by 5 generations of one family. They still live there today, but it is a National Trust property now. We lucked out with fantastic weather and gardens filled with spring blooms in the many terraces, woodlands, and meadows. It is truly one of my all time favorite botanical gardens. It was hard to capture the expanse of the gardens and colors.

      After our visit we returned to England and headed to the Lake District in the north part of England…4 hour bus ride.We’re staying in the small town of Keswick with a population of 5,000. The Lake District is filled with valleys, hills, and mountains. The environment changes again and the houses are built out of slate in this region. It has a greenish cast to it. We stopped at a truck stop where there was KFC, Starbucks, Burger King, Krispy Kreme, and Subway…LOL!
      I think I’m going to love this area. This is the area of poets and writers. Among them were Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. The view from my window is magnificent! The hotels in Europe don’t usually have elevators. I’ve been lucky with only having to drag myself and my luggage up to the 2nd floor…today it was the 3rd floor!

      We ended the day at a traditional English chippy and had fish and chips…a first for me. The most important thing for all of us at this point is to get up and walk to the laundry to drop off our clothes by 8:00 tomorrow morning!

      It is truly taking hours to download photos and I’m still waiting for about 20 more to download. Internet service has been really poor. I may add some more as more download, so check this footprint again tomorrow. All photos are from Bodnant Gardens.

      First walking day in the rain

      September 22, 2019 in England ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

      First, last night’s dinner at the pub was good. I had a steak and managed to avoid too much stooge! They offered Carole chips or jacket potato with her lasagne!! Like they do in Ireland, everything comes with potatoes in some form. (She said neither please, just salad!).

      And this morning we had a good breakfast, continental and full English choices, and a good start before walking. Despite going to bed with still a perfect day, by this morning it was raining as predicted and we set off in our rain gear at about 9.30. It wasn’t heavy all the time, and sometimes almost stopped, but enough to get pretty soggy, and the ground, even though it hadn’t rained for a week, immediately got very muddy and puddly. With the consistent rain I found that my poncho wasn’t as impermeable as I thought. We’ve always been so lucky with weather on our Caminos that it may not have been put to the test and my t-shirt got quite wet which was uncomfortable and cold. It is much colder today, and hard to remember that yesterday we only wore a light shirt, and many people just had shorts and short sleeves. Any way it was all part of the fun, and it was a short flat walk today, along the firth and half way towards Carlisle. We did about 15 kms, and walked to Burgh by Sands (pronounced bruff). It is a tiny town, but famous for a statue of Edward I where they fought Robert the Bruce...Edward died here, but now buried at Westminster Abbey. Also there is a very old church, St Michael’s, built partly with stones from Hadrian’s Wall, dating back to 13th century, with some later additions (or maybe the later additions were 12th C!!). And it had been a garrison during the wars. So much history!

      But as the inn at Burgh by Sands is closed at the moment, we were taxied back to Carlisle for the night (all part of the service) and tomorrow we get taken back to Burgh by Sands to walk back to Carlisle! So it means that we are 2 nights and this very pleasant B and B, and don’t have to pack up tomorrow morning, and have 2 days to get washing dry! So we are getting to know Carlisle well, and are going out to Indian tonight. Paul our taxi driver recommended one that is the “best in Carlisle” so we’ll put it to the test. Indian food in the UK is very good, better than I’ve found in Australia. But the other Asian cuisines - Thai, Malay etc are not anything like as good as in Oz.

      Tomorrow’s walk is even shorter than today - about 12 kms I think, and still flat. The hilly more demanding part comes in the middle, so this is a lovely gentle start!

      Now at the Walk's StartingPoint

      September 21, 2019 in England ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      We spent a few hours this morning in Carlisle looking around. A beautiful cathedral - 12th century- and a castle. And another cloudless day! At midday we assembled at the hotel and took a taxi to here - Bowness on Solway. Solway is the firth of Solway, the other side is Scotland. At low tide, which it is this afternoon, there is just a small amount of visible water, but fills up when the tide comes in. Such a delightful very small town, and we are staying at an extremely charming B and B, which was the old rectory of the nearby church and just round the corner from the only pub, the King’s Arms where we are having dinner.

      We couldn’t check into our rooms till 4 o’clock so we walked round the town, checking the starting point of the walk and enjoying the ambience and scenery. Quite a lot of walkers round, many who went the other direction from us, walked east to west, and have just finished! They say it was lovely, and of course they have had superb weather. I have already unpacked my poncho to have ready in my backpack! But meanwhile all is just wonderful.

      Biketour Keswick

      July 10, 2022 in England ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

      Heute ging es endlich aufs Bike! Wetter Konditionen immer noch Top. ☀️ . . . jedoch mussten wir das Bike mehr tragen als fahren, da wir hauptsächlich Wanderwege vorgefunden haben anstelle von Biketrails. Nächstes Mal klappt es hoffentlich besser mit dem fahren 😊

      Cheers🤙

      Ab von der Piste

      May 11, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

      Da heute die letzte Möglichkeit eine Offroadstrecke der Rally zu fahren wollten wir uns das mal anschauen. Vielleicht waren wir etwas ambitioniert. Eventuell machte das Erscheinen des Rolls Royce uns Mut. Naja wir haben es mit einem Auto hoch geschafft. Dieses haben wir dann wie im Bilderbuch auch wieder heil runter gebracht.

      1000 Erfahrungen weiter wissen wir nun, dass die Autos die wir dabei haben kaum geeignet sind. Zu wenig Bodenfreiheit und zu wenig Power. Spass hat es dennoch gemacht.

      Einmal bis zum Meer

      August 23, 2019 in England ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Heute ging es in die „Großstadt“.
      Wir fuhren nach Carlisle und schauten uns das Castle an. Erbaut im 11. Jahrhundert begann man das Castel zu bauen. Es wurde stetig erweitert.
      Es ist nett anzusehen, da wir die Mitgliedschaft des english Heritage haben, war es auch lohnend.
      Weiter bummelten wir in die Stadt und besuchten die Cathedrale. Der Eintritt ist frei.
      Sie ist wunderschön. Beeindruckend ist der Sternenhimmel.
      Unser Weg führte uns an die Küste. Wir folgten dem Hadrianswall und sahen unterwegs noch eine alte Kirche. In Abbey Town 😂.

      Mit einem schönen Abendspaziergang beendeten wir den Tag am Meer.
      Jetzt pusten wir erst einmal durch. Für die nächsten Tage soll es erst mal weniger bzw, keine Geschichte geben.
