We walked 26 long Miles around the city centre and pushed ourselves so hard! 🙂 We woke up super early for a Sunday, around 6:30am and started our trip to Edinburgh.

I was so excited and the place was packed with people also doing the Marathon… View Post

I completed this hill a few months ago but it’s a newbie for my dad who was a keen climber back in the day haha! He picked me up and we head out to Loudoun! It was a gloomy day but luckily it didn’t rain while we were out. It was however so windy!!! 🙁 We made it to the statue and already we were… View Post
