Larapinta Trek

I thought I would just drop you a note and let you know that the Larapinta Trek George & I did a couple of weeks ago was absolutely sensational. The group, the weather, the scenery, the terrain, the food, the campsites, the stars at night, and not to forget our fabulous 2 guides, Max S!! and Victor Trail was just a holiday that will stay with us for a long time. The group of people was just fantastic and everyone just got on well and as for Max & Victor, if I ever plan another Australian adventure I will do my utmost to ensure one of them if not both were the guides, the nicest, funniest and most of all very professional fellows, they kept the group in great spirits and the knowledge they both have is just outstanding, especially Max for such a young fellow. They did a great job in camp setting everything out for us, all we had to do was enjoy it. I can't sign off without mentioning the food, what these 2 guys whipped up for us everyday, breakfast, lunch on the track was just unbelievable what they carried and dinner - always 3 courses and always different, I doubt anyone lost too much wait on this trek. It was just a great pleasure to have meet 2 such great fun fellows.
Now to go off and think about what I will do next !!!!

St Bees to Kirkby Stephen

An abundance of scenic highlights has led to the 'Coast to Coast' walk being regarded as one of the world's great hikes. From the Irish Sea coast, through the Lake District National Park ending at the quaint market town of Kirkby Stephen, this shorter version offers time starved walkers a real taste of some of the best sections of the trail. Much of the walk passes through the Lakes District, rugged mountains, stunning lakes and pretty villages. This is walking at its best with opportunities to extend your day by ascending small peaks, or shortening days by adding additional nights. The journey ends on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, steeped in traditions and oozing with classic English countryside scenery, a fitting end to an exhilarating adventure.
