About Me

Hi I’m Karen, and I’ve created this online corner to satisfy my need to express, live and share all things hiking and connect with others along the way. I’m so happy that you came along! 

My passion for hiking was born from a love of the outdoors that started out from growing up sailing dingys on the Norfolk broads in the east of England. I then became a yacht chef working in the Med for several years before returning to the UK in 2018.

I now work online after retraining myself and learning lots of new interesting stuff. I live with my partner Paul, who often comes with me on my adventures. 🙂

Let's keep in touch

I'll email you when I post new blogs, and with interesting hiking based news. 🙂
