I’m blessed to have access to such gorgeous places to exercise during pandemic restrictions. I look forward to showing future guests of the B&B special places I’ve been lucky to visit during this challenging time. Be safe!
Autumn is a fabulous time of year in NE Victoria. Autumnal foliage colours in our quaint villages, cooler temperatures and dry ground under foot makes for ideal hiking.
I learn something new about my area every time I head out for a walk. Like Fairy Martins! I came across these mud nests in an underpass of the Hume Fwy in Ironbark. These little swallow like birds make their nests from mud. Intriguing!
A beautiful day was spent, just prior Easter lockdown, enjoying once again the Warby Ovens NP. Today’s hike was back on familiar ground however I explored the Moonlight Track downhill to the gorgeous wetland views of Winton and vineyards of Baileys of Glenrowan. This 12km loop walk was a cracker...
18kms loop hike thru gorgeous semi-alpine bush just outside Beechworth. It’s hilly! The reward? Views!
January started with fires, smokes, more fires, more smoke! However like a Phoenix rising from the ashes....we endure and band together with community and cause. Back to the tracks! In Myrtleford with some mates doing a reconnaissance for future group & guest walks...what you waiting for? Book now...I’ll show you some great spots for hiking & chilling
Following a six month training regime of many hills, thousands of steps and a couple of mountains in preparation for Kumano Kodo in Japan recently I am now changing tack!
It’s back to the distance training, long dusty road walking, loose gravel...and tarmac a.k.a ‘black mac’.
My first outing a few days ago was a thrill, it felt amazing to stride long, step up the pace and hit my straps.
Still, after Camino Frances in 2018, I never take my physical and mental abilities for granted. It’s a tough gig walking a pilgrimage and the preparation is most important. There’s no excuses!
Once you’ve completed the requirements for Dual Pilgrimage (Walk Kumano Kodo and Camino de Santiago) you are registered on the Dual Pilgrimage website. So here we are in Hongu Taisha at the Heritage Centre all fresh, shiny and proud of our UNESCO World Heritage achievement.
