Joanie and I have finally gone through the hundreds of photos and video clips from our recent trekking holiday to the UK, in order to find the best ones to post here over the next few weeks. My intentions with this blog are to document our experiences for posterity and to share our experiences with those friends around the world who might be interested in following along our journey. Thanks for viewing, and don’t hesitate to ask any questions or add comments.
We landed in Manchester, England on a misty morning and hired a little Ford Puma hybrid for the month before loading up our gear and driving out to the home of Iain and Janie in nearby Neston on The Wirral. Iain and I first met as new students at Stirling University in Scotland, just 45 years ago. I hadn’t done a very good job of staying in touch over the intervening decades while we had families and careers, but it was a blast to catch up with them and their family over our few days together. I am forever indebted to Iain for my deep love of Liverpool Football Club (#YNWA), and am very excited to see them both again later this year on my next adventure (more about that to come soon!).
Sorry, Ringo – I missed a good shot of you!
