Short of much else to share with you in the way of technology or entertainment, I thought I would let you know what I have been planning for the past couple of weeks.
When work becomes a bore and the daily grind just starts to get you down, there is nothing better to sort out your own thoughts than getting away from it all!
When I was a young teenager, me and a group of friends would occasionally take a walk, tents in hand and school bags full of food to the local woodland. We would venture in until we found a suitable clearing, set up camp, gather wood and build a nice fire, and settle down for the night.
A fair few years on, I had almost forgotten how much I actually enjoyed getting out into the fresh air and just being happy with the world.
After a dance with nostalgia, I remembered just how much fun we had when we were younger, what an adventure everything seemed to be. We were the first expedition party, exploring new lands, civilizations and even new species of animals. Living off the land for a whole weekend until we had to return back to reality and home ready for school the next day.
Within the next few weeks (if all goes to plan), me and a good friend have decided to take a fortnight out from daily life and "take a walk on the wild side." A relatively short distance from here lies a national park which is going to be perfect. I know Max (my Rottweiler) is going to have one hell of a time. 1000 square miles of moorland/woodland with many streams flowing throughout, I can almost picture it now.
Anyway, ramble over (no pun intended) -But that's the plan ! I will be taking a digital camera/smart phone and attempt to do a daily update, but this isn't going to be for a few more weeks yet but I will be sure to at least try to keep this blog updated.
