My name is Rich and welcome to my blog about walking the Wales Coast Path, other trails and places near and far.

This blog is a record of experiences along the way and sharing the highlights of each walk. Hopefully the posts and photos will provide some inspiration for readers to also get outdoors and explore more! 

I’m interested in the benefits of walking and exploring the great outdoors for improving health and well-being. And then an info sheet produced to publicise the Wales Coast Path caught my attention and provided one of those “let’s do this” moments!

Walking for health

The Wales Coast Path opened in 2012 and covers 870 miles between Wales border in the North near Chester to Chepstow and the River Wye in South East Wales. 

Over the next few years I aim to discover more of the spectacular coastline of Wales by walking sections of the coast path and experiencing new places along the way. It provides a perfect way to stay active and explore the ‘great outdoors’, an ideal antidote to the working week.

With me every step of the way will be my partner Caroline, who shares my enthusiasm for the natural landscapes of Wales, coast walking and travelling near and far.

We’ll be taking to the paths at a leisurely pace with no set time limits on progress. We aim to complete the world renowned Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail but will also be venturing to other parts of Wales and trips further afield.

This blog will be a record of our experiences on memorable great walks, of spectacular scenery, incredible landscapes and places.

So why not come along on the journey following our progress. Perhaps we’ll see you on the way? Cheers!
