Going for a walk with your family and dog on a bank holiday Monday seems like a lovely idea doesn’t it? My family don’t do things by halves and we decided to walk 16 miles in the Cotswolds with my little Cocker Spaniel in tow.
The Cotswold Way is 103 miles long in total, running from Chipping Camden to Bath. My mum and Gary have been walking it over the weekends for the past few weeks and Stu and I joined them for the last stint, Hailes to Chipping Camden. I don’t mind walking but this was a hard walk with lots of uphill sections. Even my dog was tired and I have never seen him actually want to go to bed before! I’m still aching 2 days after finishing so it’s not for those wanting a gentle stroll in the countryside.
The views made up for the pain though. Last year Stu and I saw so many wonderful sights around the world so it’s really nice to remind ourselves just how pretty our own country is.
