Stepping out in 2022

Last year I promised myself that every day I would get up, get out and walk. And mostly I did achieve that, albeit not always the target of 10,000 steps, or more, each time. What follows below is just a brief record of this. The photos are randomly selected (except to avoiding repetition of location) monthly snapshots of places that I saw on my travels. Surprisingly, in spite of the apparent diversity of terrain and tree cover, most of these rambles took place within 15 miles of my doorstep. I’ve always had in my head that the Cambridgeshire countryside is boring. Perhaps I was wrong after all? We might not have mountains or the coast, but it seems we have great skies!

I’ve made the same commitment for 2023, but given that I am trying minimise driving for environmental reasons, I suspect that I am going to be doing a lot of map reading to search out new places.

    My favorite photos are from January, April, July, and October, but every one is appealing. Your countryside seems more ‘walkable’ than it is around here, but of course we’re urban, and poured concrete paths predominate. Like you, I’m going to seek out some new spots this year — here’s to both of us finding some lovely new places!

    • It certainly helps with walking that we live bordering on the Fens. It’s all nice and level, with a network of paths beside streams, ditches and drains. Good luck with your search. Lovely spots here we come!

    Oh well done for your challenge, Allison, and thanks for sharing the photos – I especially like all the woodland ones, but am very intrigued by the landscape of Orwell…is it another area of Neolithic flint mines?
