Meet Bernie…

I’m pleased to introduce the newest member of the Johnston clan, this is Bernie, isn’t she lovely:

Gordie the Corsa has been traded for Bernie the Berlingo van. And Bernie is in charge of taking us on new adventures. At the moment she is empty in the back.

There will be some van conversion going on, with beds, shelves, etc being added. But I don’t expect any of this to happen quickly as:

a) The holidays are almost over, and

b) I need to learn how to convert it….

I’ll start simply and inside my comfort zone. Now where are those wet wipes.

Our 7 Days of the West Highland Way – April 2014

This is the story of our West Highland Way trip. We walked the Way from Milngavie to Fort William in 7 days (Thank god we didn’t try for 5…). Those 7 days were some of the best days I’ve ever experienced with a mix of fun, adventure, banter, wildlife, gorgeous views and a great feeling of achievement. I’m genuinely sad it’s over (although my legs and I have been forced to disagree on this point). Thanks to all those who were involved, whether walker, supporter or feral animal.
