Its coming into Spring soon here in England which is usually a good season for walking.  This year I want to walk the South Downs Way.  Its been a while since I have done much walking although I did do the Vierdaagse in Nijimegen in 2005 which was challenging.  Not since NZ have I really done much hiking or tramping as kiwi’s call it.  I was lucky to have done a few hikes there in my younger days completing the Tongariro Crossing, Milford Track, Heaphy, Abel Tasman, Wangapeka, Routeburn, Kepler, Stewart Island and a few others.  Living over in the UK we are planning on doing some walks hopefully this year in Austria to check out the Alpine Inns.  I am hoping to scan some of the old photographs from my NZ tramping days on to this at some stage.
