|Subject: Re: English Lake District|
Hi Pat. You must also be familiar with the British
Magazine Country Walking. I used to enjoy it a lot
when I lived over there, but I've never seen it in
Canada and the subscription rates for overseas are
rather high -- and I'm afraid I would long for the
wonderful British footpaths too much if I were to read
about them every month.
One of my fondest holiday memories involves rain, basic accommodation, and exhaustion -- yes, walking in the English Lake District. My partner and I did the Cumbria Way a few years ago and it was just great, even though it was mostly wet. Even though it was July there weren't many people about. We often say that it was our best holiday (especially the middle bit through Coniston, Keswick, etc.). Can't wait to go back. I'm also very interested in walking in Scotland and Wales.
