Walks Along Crimdon Beach, Durham

A beach I have walked many a time and in many a weather. Crimdon Beach is one of those joys where you can stretch your legs over a spectacular large sandy beach as well as it being so surprisingly quiet. I did this stretch of coast on my Tyne to Tees walk and that inspired me to come back, time and time again. It is on the the very South of the Durham coast and leads into Hartlepool Headland at the far end if heading from Crimdon. On a clear day you get great views over to the North...

Walking Tenerife – Erjos to Masca

Tenerife, yes, it was wonderful to be back in Tenerife, hiking again! My favourite pastime in one of my favourite places to hike. Those that come to this island to drink and sunbathe may only see the sandy fraction of it in the South but those that wander see an island of vast variety, history, nature and culture. It was day one of the Tenerife Walking Festival and my first walk was to be Erjos to Masca, through the eastern Tuno Rural Park, along ridges and to see a beautifully green part of Tenerife. Let’s go! a 10 km...

Tyne to Tees Walk: Hartlepool Headland to The Tees

It was the last leg today of this wonderful walk. I had walked, as you have seen in previous posts, from the River Tyne and so far to Hartlepool Headland. The landscape would change yet again this day, and so much more to discover! Hartlepool Headland is a place full of varying interests. There is the famous Heugh battery Museum that I shall do a special standalone post on next. The views out to sea and the North Yorkshire coast are immense plus there is the old church to discover and rock pooling heaven for the family. Many of...

Sailing Down The Coast of Belize

First thing’s first, let me answer the question I’ve been asked repeatedly when chatting to friends and family about my most recent holiday. ‘Where’s Belize?’ ‘It’s in Central America… just below Mexico.’ I can understand the puzzled looks. After all, Belize isn’t your typical holiday destination. There are no direct flights from the UK, so getting there can be a bit tricky. But if you put in the miles (I took a flight from Gatwick to Cancun, then hopped on an overly-air-conditioned night bus from Cancun to Belize City) the rewards are more than worth it. Belize boasts almost...

Tyne to Tees Walk: From Sunderland to Seaham

It was time for a new day on this fabulous walk along the coast from the Tyne to the Tees. The first day was a trove of treasures and history, I was looking forward to the next leg. What would the next morning bring? Well now to head further South, out of Sunderland and back onto the clifftops fill of amazing sea views. It doesn’t take long before you are back out of the City and onto the cliff tops. Open views both inland and out to sea. It was going to be a refreshing day for body and...

Tyne to Tees Walk: From The Tyne to Roker

It was time to begin… A glorious walk along one of the best stretches you can walk of the British Coast. From the River Tyne at South Shields all the way down to the River Tees at Hartlepool. I was going to spend 4 great days to take it all in properly, and I was damn well going to enjoy every single mile! The start point? By the Tyne and at Customs House. Now a theatre/cinema this listed building was once a customs post built in the 1860s for what was once a huge shipping industry. It was time...
