I’m off to France later on today – an expedition to take in the beaches from Bordeaux to Roscoff as well as a potter about in the Dordogne too.

I was offering a week long activity holiday based near Carnac in Southern Brittany and Kevin booked onto it and I had Julie who wanted to come along but ‘the covid’s’ hit and all plans for the summer were sneezed into a hanky and disposed of.

However, I’ll hone that trip and will have similar in mind for next summer.

While out in France I’ll be investigating properties and costs and may one year soon make the move, for six months of the year or more, to slow down, grow veg and become conker brown from lying about in the sun.

It’s a possible that I’ll look at property that is super cheap and small AND more expensive and suited to multiple occupants. Who’s up for a communal retreat/home/business in Brittany?

Anyways, I’m back, covid allowing, September 3rd and will be delivering walks in Wales on the 5th and 6th. Join me rot marvel at my tan before it begins to fade 🙂

David, Melitsa, Neal, Nick, Graham and Naomi are all delivering walks throughout August and September so the programme doesn’t stop when I’m away, if anything, it’s a bit more packed out and amazing than it usually is – must be the post covid desire to be out and about. Check out the events calendar HERE!

Have a great summer and I’ll see you on the other side 🙂
