The Waikareao Estuary Walk & Kōrero

This scenic area is my go-to place for executing a reasonably easy 10km fast walk. Until I discovered a few inclines and steps to throw in to keep my heart rate elevated. Though it isn't all about racing around trying to look like an overheated fitness fanatic. It includes enjoying the various birdlife and bush… Continue reading The Waikareao Estuary Walk & Kōrero

A Walk around Mt Maunganui [Mauao]

The day started with grand ambitions to scale a Mountain, she's a reasonable size towering an impressive 231 metres skywards. These were changed when darkening skies were forming right behind us as we headed towards the start of our walk. Thoughts of a less wet ending to this story might occur if I went around… Continue reading A Walk around Mt Maunganui [Mauao]

Housesitting by the Chichester Harbour

What a glorious start to our summer in the UK. Sunny days and balmy nights. With a prediction by some to be the hottest summer since 2006, which so happened to be the first time we came over here as a couple! June also signified the start of another housesit in a new area of… Continue reading Housesitting by the Chichester Harbour

The Windlesham Arboretum walk

What a surprise we had when extending our morning walk a few weeks back in Windlesham.  Which required us to head over the motorway via a bridge, instead of doing the "circuit".  It still needed us to go through the public pathways and through a paddock.  At first, it looked like any other public footpath… Continue reading The Windlesham Arboretum walk

Walking in Wiltshire

The freedom of walking and its regenerative power that makes it a pleasure.   With Spring now upon us, and for some reason, the beginning of this season seems to generate in us a big surge of energy and a "Let's grab this opportunity and go with it", sort of thought.  For us this spring, it… Continue reading Walking in Wiltshire

A Saunter down GRAND AVENUE

My first question on awakening a certain Spring morning was; "What's the weather looking like outside?". With a quick pull of the curtains,  a sleepy voice replies with a non-committal, "Not too bad, not too good.  With about 50/50 for showers by the look of it". Without a second thought, it was settled, we were… Continue reading A Saunter down GRAND AVENUE

Neighbourhood Walks – Iztuzu Beach & more

In Dalyan. Spring, not Summer. Warmish not HOT. More locals out walking than tourists. One more cat, albeit only a temporary visitor, had been added to the gang. Of course, you would remember the gang from our last visit here in the Summer of 2017. This visit could not be more opposite in weather conditions.… Continue reading Neighbourhood Walks – Iztuzu Beach & more
