Leaving the comfort zone

The View Eastbourne

 Walking in Eastbourne

I created I can’t explain my feet following a period of being stuck in a rut. I joined a walking group and started going out of London on walks to places I hadn’t really heard of. After my leader training , I then was qualified to lead walks.  Since then I have been on many walks and led a few. My passion for writing and interest in leading walks, served two purposes, one was having something current to write about and secondly finding walks & getting out there

I’m a blogger not a jogger!

At a recent Unite Womens Week in Eastbourne, I had the privilege of staying at The View Hotel for a week overlooking the sea. The course was full on and we had daily workshops running from 9am-5pm.

 

Being pulled in two directions.

I was aware that this opportunity had come at a time when I was just starting a Social Media Diploma course and had taken unpaid leave to do the course; as well, to review my employment possibilities!

One thing I knew for sure was I was going to walk; eventually I went for it and ran, Essential when your commute is two floors down!

 

Fantastic views,changing skylines 

This is the sort of place I could like to see myself living in, I think to  myself, a room with a view , open space and the sea air. I’m aware of the problem areas but all seaside resorts have that problem. In fact all UK, towns and cities have a lot worse problems. I love seaside resorts.

I jogged the mile to the start of Beachy Head every morning before breakfast then another walk into town before lunch. I also managed to get a little climb up to Cliffs Edge which overlooks the sea heading towards Beachy Head.

I  found a place on the sea front that did Pilates and Yoga, so  I joined in with an easy yoga/mediation class, before the UNITE final night disco.!

Coming Up

I’m off on  a short walk on the 8/12 round Greenwich area then xmas lunch with the Rambler South east group.  

My Blog

This journal is my own personal blog and I do not write or work for the Ramblers Organisation, but I do have a page & upload some of their up and coming walks. Please have a look at it and if you want to join the Ramblers to find groups in your area. Check out www.ramblers.org.uk

Lastly I would just like to recommend a cafe in Eastbourne Terminus place. The hotel was very good but on arrival there was no lunch, so i found this place and had to go back a couple of more times for their delicious soup.
