We are Millie & Suzy, and this blog celebrates everything we love about the great outdoors. We hope you’ll enjoy following our walking adventures around the Cotswolds and beyond.
We tend not to post heaps of photos to avoid spoiling the walk for you. It is better to let your imagination do the work, and enjoy a few surprises along the way!
Having lived for many years in southern Spain, we returned to the UK in 2005 to settle in the Roman town of Cirencester. Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
It wasn’t until September 2015 that we set off on our first backpacking adventure, walking the 102 mile/ 164km Cotswold Way national trail from Chipping Campden to Bath. Carrying a base weight of approx 8kg (18lb) each, we took 10 days to complete the route. It was an unforgettable experience. Would we do it again? Absolutely! Although we did underestimate how much of a challenge it would be to walk and camp for that length of time in our unpredictable British climate.
As followers of Abraham Hicks and the law of attraction, we firmly believe in the philosophy that “Life is meant to be fun”. Keen to promote spirituality, health and wellbeing we are Reiki Masters, and founded Original Japanese Reiki to help bring hope and healing to others.
