Just over the halfway point in August(!), I felt it would be an appropriate time to update you on the month that was July 2019.

Our weekend away in Snowdonia was drawing to a close, along with the end of May Bank Holiday weekend. A small number of group members were determined to tackle the three-and-a-half hour drive home ASAP. My suggestion, was to divide the journey with a walk along the way.
So, we crossed the border and arrived at Church Stretton in Shropshire; ninety-minutes down and now only two-hours from home. But first, eight-miles of hiking!

This was a stop off in Shropshire, en route to a shared weekend and camping and walking in Snowdonia, with Brunel Walking Group.
More than two whole months have passed since the experience but it all remains fresh enough in my memory for me to be able to finally begin writing.
I arrived home at about 20.10 last night, having spent the previous three evenings sleeping in a tent to the south of Snowdonia in mid Wales.
My first trip away with and experience of camping with a walking group. Previously, I’d only been camping with one friend at a time. It’s passed by very quickly and there are many things I could reflect on.
