A change of pace and a change of direction

When I first started blogging earlier this year, I must admit this was somewhat without direction.  I wanted to be able to write a blog but didn't really have a clear idea of what I'd be writing about, other than a few random subjects of interest to me.  The small number of subjects I wrote about were loosely linked around my excursions into the British countryside, along with a couple of short reviews of history books I'd recently enjoyed reading.

Since I first began this blog my life has started to change and now I find that I have a very clear view of where I'm heading and thus the path my blog will also follow.  This has all come about due to my recently rediscovered love of walking. 

I've enjoyed walking in the countryside for as long as I can remember, but in recent years, due to various other commitments, I haven't been able to venture out as much as I would like.  This year that has all changed and, from March onwards, I've steadily increased the amount, the distance and the altitude of my walks.  The result in terms of my health, fitness and general sense of wellbeing has been wonderful and this alone is something I consider worth sharing.  If I'd known earlier in the year just how positive an influence my walks would have, then I should have started this blog earlier and (if you'll pardon the pun) on the right foot!  But better late than never.

I've got some catching up to do.  What follows over the next few days/weeks will be accounts of my walking experiences from March onwards, along with any particular topics of interest associated with the places I've visited.  Over the course of the past few months I've also invested in some new gear to improve my walking experience, so as and when I think it's appropriate I may also include the odd review.

If I actually have any readers of this blog, I hope you'll feel free to comment or ask questions.  It would be very nice if just one person found it interesting or useful.
