Our Courses put you in the ‘walker’s stride’ by letting you see and learn about the wonderful journey you’re planning to embark upon. We look at practical preparations such as how to buy the right sort of footwear and the appropriate wet-weather gear. This saves you time and money. Then we develop itineraries which allow you enough time to visit the historic houses, the castles and the village fairs on your walk.
Where do you really want to go? That’s usually easily sorted. Dig out that list of places and pick the top three and start planning. The world is larger than we think. Our list of Journeys may give you some ideas. Life enrichment for travellers.
“History is a cacophony of voices competing for our attention”. – Lucy Worsley. With the perspective of time comes a clarity of vision that is not always apparent in one’s present time. Travelling is like immersing ourselves in history. Visiting ancient sites, continues the story that we are all a part of.
YOU KNOW it’s time to start your journey. We’ve Read the Walk, Talked the Talk, and NOW it’s time to Walk the Walk.
– If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time. – Joseph Campbell.
