Best Walks of 2014–2015
It’s difficult to pick the best walks, or the best blogs;or even the best pictures, but did manage to select a few. All walks and the blogs posted here are my personal favourites.

Walking the cliffs of Dover.Photography in posts
Photography is another tricky art form, depending on what camera you use will determine whether you can size them up all the same. After a lot of experimenting with different cameras, I realised the convenience of an I phone is sufficient but a portable recharger and an old I Phone is needed. One phone just for pictures the other for maps on very long walks. Occasionally I like to use a 35 mm camera.
SEPTEMBER 2014 -Thorney Island! A strange hypnotic walk
My favourites of 2015
Rambling on is a way of describing someone who is talking a lot from one subject to the next, not necessarily coherently, or accurately but often; hopefully entertaining.
Is one of my favourite blogs, I am writing about what I like and not just a description of a walk I have been on. Although in the main most of the blogs are about walks, my rambles can include anything along the way. I can ramble on or go for a ramble. Two bonus audio tracks included in this one.Mad as the Mist and Snow- March 2015
April Oh April
I love these photos taken at Peckham Rye Station with a 33 mm camera, they look picturesque. I just love open spaces and railway lines. April is always a good time to get out walking .
April 2015, spent a lot of time walking about London along the river. I have some of the best days doing this.
Keeping an eye on the time walking from Blackheath to Greenwich
July 2015 -Cudham Circular
A great day of surprises,including this bird of prey we encountered en-route. We then visited a fantastic a wild garden, opened for public viewing. Well worth reading about. An inspirational garden, meeting the owners was a real bonus. Walk led by Judith Robertson.No Brainer! Do not walk in the midday sun….

May, June & July are great for walking .
It can get a bit hot- so watch out for that, walking in the outdoors, & getting dehydrated. No shops here.!
September 2015 A perfect day
Walking from Chesham to Missenden.
October 2015 Belfast
I had lived in Galway and travelled quite a bit in The Republic of Ireland. I did a degree in Humanities as a mature student and chose Irish Studies as my main subject.
Up until October 2015 I had never visited Belfast and thought it was about time I did. I cried on the tour bus going through the Sectarian area of West Belfast in the Falls Road area. See October 2015 archives for full article.
November 2015 Meet Up Groups
I was connecting with meet up Groups, including Word Press who have given me this platform to design and write my monthly blog. Fantastic tool, & inspiring creative people. Also teamed up with UK Explorer a new walking group. See blog for further details.

Overall in 2014 & 2015, I went out on a good selection of walks and trips. Next Month is my final Best of series covering the years 2016-2017
