Well... I had a fantastic two week break, back home and feel extremely lucky to have spent my well earned rest in two fabulous locations.
The first week, as previously posted, was spent in the South West corner of Ireland and the second, back home visiting family, in the beautiful Peak District and surrounding areas.
It was so nice to spend most of that time out in the open, walking and exploring, doing the many things I love to do. It was also so good to have an abundance of fresh air, freedom, see loved ones and share many special times together.
My family is so cool, the best and where possible, whenever possible, it is great to just spend time with them. Even more important now I don't live as close. Then again it is only a 50 minute flight from Amsterdam to Manchester or 3 days by bike. : )
Now, for me it's back to reality, as work starts once again, but I'm looking forward to more great times in the next few months. As we have lots planned.
For me, in my world, there are certainly exciting times ahead...
I would also like to extend a big thanks to the lovely people at Haglöfs for providing me with outdoor gear that allows me to explore this great place in comfort and of course enable me to be in my element.
Thanks for reading.
