Hi everyone, I thought I'd join the forum as I live in Northumberland and do quite a lot of walking here as well as in the Lake District and some places abroad.
I'm not a lone walker and mainly walk with my husband and our dog, Heidi, a four year old trailhound who we have had for two years.
I'm on a couple of other walking forums so some of you might know me from there.
I've recently started to write a walking blog and at the minute am trying to write up a few of the more memorable, scenic ones I've done and have today posted about a charity trek I did in South Africa.
Please have a look feel free to "follow" me by clicking the "follow" tab at the top right hand side of the blog.
Welcome to Northumbria Hills, and thanks for posting. I`ve been a bit absent on here lately (one thing and other); now I`m trying to breathe some life back into the forums, with some [small] degree of success. I shall keep plugging away! I have seen you on another forum, yes, and I`ve had a look at your blog, very good indeed. Maybe blogs are the way forward, the likes of Facebook, Twitter etc having put paid to many a forum/message board.
Many, but not quite all...
PS. Thank you for linking to us on your blog, much appreciated.
Hi Paula, I moved up to the north east ………..many many years ago and wouldn’t move back down south even if they paid me to , I love the pace of life , the unspoilt beach’s the miles and miles of rolling green hills that make up the Cheviots . The unspoilt landscape ………no I won’t be moving again I live in Blyth which isn’t that far from you ……(I follow your blog) and try to get out at least once a week for day trips walking someplace (weather and shifts permitting) , however I am out several times a day locally ,with the pup’s normally along the beach or one of the parks . I have several favourite places out in the hills where I try to get out for “big hill walks” but sadly I’m still recovering from a recent knee operation which is causing me some grief and lots of frustration but hopefully by the warmer months I should be ready again ………….and then I have loads of “to do” walks. But until I get fixed and heal properly I’m staying on the flat and level but hopefully later ……….. Do you have a favourite area or walk? If so please share or do you have one that is on your list for this year, I have several that MUST be done this year which I will tell you about later Must dash now ………….Mick
