Why Kamnik is the Perfect Base to Explore Ljubljana and Velika Planina

Why Kamnik is the Perfect Base to Explore Ljubljana and Velika Planina

Slovenia
I'd not actually heard of Kamnik before, but when the Ljubljana tourism board offered me an overnight stay in Kamnik and cable car tickets to visit Velika planina, I discovered that these were places that I didn't know I was desperate to visit! Furthermore, I found that Kamnik was the perfect base to explore not only Velika planina but also Ljubljana, offering a much quieter spot just 30-40 minutes away from the city.
A Slightly Girlie Guide to Hiking Kit Essentials

A Slightly Girlie Guide to Hiking Kit Essentials

Leeds
Walking holidays are only enjoyable if a) you're fit enough (it's no fun if you're struggling up hills and longing for the end of the day so that you can rest your legs) and b) you have the right kit. The right kit will literally mean the difference between a multi-day hike being a challenge or a holiday. Here are my hiking essentials.

Hi, I'm Nell. I’m a Leeds based travel blogger creating content to inspire you to make the most of your weekends, limited annual leave and hard-earned cash by writing about part-time, mid-budget travel. Here you'll find posts about city breaks, hiking trips and tales of food and wine.

What to Expect on the GR20

What to Expect on the GR20

Corsica
I'm going to start this post of with a bold statement: the GR20 is the best hike I've done. I've loved the Spaghetti Tour in the Italian Alps, Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn, Hardrians Wall, the Coast to Coast, the West Highland Way, but the GR20 is the one that really takes my breath away whenever I think about it. It's absolutely not an easy walk, in fact it's the most difficult one I've done, but this post will tell you what to expect on the GR20 with the hope that you give it a go yourself.
A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

Ingleborough
Yorkshire is perfect for a day out, whether you're entertaining the kids, spending time with a partner or having a solo adventure! There is so much beautiful countryside and a million things to do. This weekend Billy and I visited White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. My Christmas present to Billy this year was 'a year of fun', which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event to do together once a month for the next year. This was January's treat and an attraction that I would highly recommend to anyone. 
Trekking Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

Trekking Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn

nce a year my dad and I make time for a hiking holiday together. Sometimes this is in the UK (Hadrian's Wall, The West Highland Way and Coast to Coast have been our favourites) and sometimes we venture further afield. Recently, we completed a 'best of' version of the Mont Blanc to Matterhorn trek where we enjoyed some quality daddy-daughter time.
