About me

I’ve been walking the woods in Ardagh on a regular basis for a few years 3 or 4 times a week. Last year I decided to write something and take a picture for each walk and record it for posterity. Many people have a regular walking route that they enjoy and find something noteworthy there every day. So I thought I would stop and think of one thing every day worth mentioning about my walk.

I lived with this woods on my back door for something like 7 years before I started getting out in them on a regular basis. I can cross the fence from my back garden  and be in the woods and have the advantage of having a 4.5km walk with about 400m on public roads. This is good for me and the dogs who accompany me every day and who probably enjoy the experience a lot more than I do.

I don’t make it out every day due to an extreme commute, but I average something like 3 days a week (or so I tell myself). So writing this down will kept me honest over the course of the year.

This year’s goal is to walk 1000km worth of hikes over a mixture of trails, forests and mountains. I will be concentrating a bit less on the backyard walks.

  1. Hi Gem. Just found your blog through a FB share from the Longford Canal Group. Enjoyed reading your February posts and wished I had discovered your blog when we were home last year! Look forward to following your walking blog and trying out one or two of them next time we are back in Longford.
