My Sustainability Debt Snowball

I was listening to a talk with the author of a book called The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide, Jen Gale. I found this video at the right time. When I was in the right mindset. This post is about my take on what she said and how I am implementing my next imperfect sustainable step. IfContinue reading “My Sustainability Debt Snowball”

What I Eat on a Walking Day

My walk this weekend was only about 4 miles so not enough to be concerned about eating lots of extra calories or snacking during the walk. The temperature was slightly chilly for me without my jacket but hot with it (just a little after resistant cycling jacket). Though there were my most dreaded hills itContinue reading “What I Eat on a Walking Day”

Walking in the Heat

My husband and I love to go out walking but we are not really great with hot temperatures. Okay, I am also not good with cold temperatures but that is another post for the future. Our walking day was 29C / 84F. Looking at it written out like that I realise that for many thatContinue reading “Walking in the Heat”

Stockgrove Park

Stockgrove Park is near Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire just outside the village of Heath & Reach. It is between Heath & Reach and Great Brickhill. It is part of Rushmere Country Park which is made up of Rushmere, Stockgrove, Oak Wood, Rammamere and parts of King’s Wood. To say the least, there is a plethora ofContinue reading “Stockgrove Park”

Stony Stratford to Cosgrove

Okay, not quite Stony Stratford. We started from the car park at Ouse Valley Park which isn’t really in Stony but it is only a hole, skip and a jump away. This one is a much shorter walk than I had hoped for but it is what happened. I chose the starting point and AlanContinue reading “Stony Stratford to Cosgrove”

Up Cycle Route 6 and Down the Grand Union Canal

Last week we walked from Willen Lake to Great Linford on a circular route. This week we decided to continue on that route further and started off from the Linford Manor Park. We parked up at the Memorial Hall off of Marsh Drive in Great Linford. Now if you want to add the Milton KeynesContinue reading “Up Cycle Route 6 and Down the Grand Union Canal”

Milton Keynes City Walk

People seem to have a very poor image of Milton Keynes. I am often told that Milton Keynes is just concrete. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. We walked for just over 6 miles and it was all lovely and green. We started out from Willen Lake. The car park we used was acrossContinue reading “Milton Keynes City Walk”

Ashridge Walk

With the Covid lockdown we are generally not traveling far but luckily we have several forests and parks around to choose from for walks.  This time we chose to head over to the Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire.  It is a National Trust property with public footpaths winding all over it.  We parked at a smallContinue reading “Ashridge Walk”

Safari Walk

As we missed out the last bit of our Woburn walk last week we decided to finish it off this week. As the whole walk was meant to be 8 miles and we walked 7 miles last week we didn’t expect this walk to be terribly long. We did get slightly lost last week andContinue reading “Safari Walk”
