There’s something about this time of year that prompts me to pause and reflect on the previous Twelve months. Whilst I’m not usually one for retrospection, it allows me to remember and appreciate all the things we’ve been able to fit into the year.
Looking back, 2016 has faced us with difficulties and sadness, but on the whole, it’s been fantastic and mostly full of highs. After a difficult few years, being able to look back and feel a sense of happiness and joy rather than sorrow, is a wonderful thing.
We’ve had heaps of amazing opportunities come our way, but we’ve also planned plenty of our own adventues, spending most weekends out and about doing something. As I write this, 2016 is yet to reach a close, so I thought it would be nice to round up 12 highlights from the Camping with Style year.
We kicked off the year with a walk up Mam Tor in the Peak District. It didn’t exactly go as planned but it was atmospheric and memorable – See More.
In February a last minute mini-break to Morocco meant we got the opportunity to go quad biking in the Sahara desert – See More.
At Easter we went on hastily arranged road trip to the Scottish highlands and climbed a mountain – See more.
On my birthday, we went on a Peak District walk, up the Roaches and on towards the magical Lud’s Church – See more.
We spent a long weekend at Canvas & Clover indulging in a spot of eco glamping and walking in the Malvern Hills – See more.
For the first time since my accident, we managed to get back out onto the water and went kayaking at Astbury Mere in Cheshire – See more.
Suse took her family on a weekend glamping break where they learned to surf at Surf Snowdonia – See more.
We went to the Ardeche in the South of France for a week with Acorn Adventure and had an absolute blast – See more.
I got over a life-long fear of heights and discovered a love for indoor climbing – Read more.
We went on a camping and activity weekend and had a brilliant day walking up Snowdon with the Outdoor Bloggers group – See more.
We went to Whitby Goth Weekend and stayed in a cottage with friends and drank Tequilla shots for breakfast, though I also got out to do a bit of walking – See more.
The final walk of the year and one that had been on our list for ages, Dovedale, Ilam & Bunster Hill (where I found no buns and was slighty disappointed), however our stay at Hoe Grange definitely made up for the lack of buns! – See more.
To all of our friends, family and supporters, we’d like to say a huge thank you, and wish you all a fantastic, fun-filled and happy New Year.
