Roaming Scribe: A North Cape Adventure

| Posted 08.14.2013 | UK Lifestyle

This far North, there will only be two months of summer before the days start to shorten and wind and cold return. In fact, I find it hard to believe the snow only fully melted two weeks ago. In the winter there is three months of total darkness, the Polar Night, when the Northern Lights are most prominent.

Roaming Scribe: Off Grid Dartmoor

On my first visit to Dartmoor, Elaine is teaching hubby and I a nifty way of trekking using ski type poles to create forward thrust. Nordic Walking was developed by cross country skiers and uses all the body's muscle groups, unlike regular hiking or walking. A fantastic work out.
