Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!
French motorways on a Saturday in August. Why, oh why did we plan to change locations on a Saturday?
School geography had a lot of stuff about glaciation. The Pyrenees are ideal for a refresher field trip.
Glaciated valleys tend to be steep at the bottom and flatten out as you get higher. We didn’t get that high.
The Col du Tourmalet and the Pic do Midi de Bigorre. The Col is a long way up, but the Pic is further.
We decided to get out of the rain by visiting a cave where water was literally pouring out of the ceiling.
A bit of an adventure exercise involving several zip lines and via ferrata. All four of us had a go.
Luz Saint Sauveur nestles at the base of the Col du Tourmalet, the most famous climb in the Tour de France.
A morning parkrun followed by breakfast and an unexpectedly slow drive along some French motorways.
A day of driving through France collecting occasional geocaches, ending at a spectacularly pretty chateau.
An account of our 16-day family holiday in 2019, in which we travelled to the very bottom of France and back up.
The annual UK Mega geocaching event was being held in Aberdeen. I know someone who lives there.
Wandering around the countryside near Cambridge. Well, why not? Especially as I hadn’t done much caching in 2019.
