Hiking and Walking Blogs

Hiking & Walking blogs that I found interesting:

cropped-dscf0905.jpg

I love walking and am fortunate to live near the South West Coastal Path in the UK. I would love to go backpacking along the path but its always a dilema as to how much equipment to take with with me. In variably I take waterproofs and it doesn’t rain or I wrap up warm and it becomes very hot. So below are some more accomplished backpackers who may provide you with some inspiration.
