26th November 2015 Malham Cove Walk (again)!

Geoff and I did this walk three days ago and I promised Angela that I would do it again with her as it is such a lovely walk.

We parked up in the same spot as before (opposite The Buck Inn) and set off towards Janet’s Foss following the same route. We were going to do all of the walk apart from Malham Tarn as it’s not really anything special (in my opinion)!

There were only three differences from the previous walk. The weather was not as good, there were more people about and more importantly we went into the pub for a bite to eat before returning to the van.

We sat beside a roaring coal fire with a bowl of the best mushroom soup ever, hot bread & butter, chips and a pint of real ale all for £22. Angela kindly offered to drive back so she had an orange juice & lemonade.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
