OK, folks, we’re back from our one week break from civilisation. No computer, no telephone, no worries…plus fabulous weather (no drop of rain), perfect for long family walks/expeditions! What more could one want? We came back recharged, sun-tanned, fitter and a lot more relaxed than we’d been for ages.
I could write volumes about this trip, since every second was special to us. I will, however, refrain myself from boring you to death and try to concentrate the whole experience in a couple of posts containing fewer words and more photos. Hopefully, you’ll like them.
First off, I’ve got to keep my part of the bargain and disclose our mystery destination. As all of you guessed (I wonder if I’m too good at giving clues?!?), we went to the beautiful Lake District in Cumbria, to a camping site near Lake Windermere called Park Cliffe. What a fabulous place…Well run, very picturesque and the perfect base for day trips and adventures of discovery. This was our second visit there, and we’ll definitely return a few more times over the following years, as there are a lot more things to see and peaks to explore.
Here are few photos of the site and its surroundings…
…as well as a few other photos taken during our gentle, ‘recovery’ walks:
At the kids’ request, we also ventured on higher peaks for a bit of ‘extreme training’. However, due to space constraints and my picture overload tendencies, the recount of our one-day adventure on top of the world (well, not really, but it felt like it) will be the subject of a future post.
