For our first venture with an 8kg pack we opted for a fairly flat eight miles, 13km around Ilam. It is easy to forget how lovely the Peak District is. It is on our doorstep and we often overlook it.
We’ve booked a bed in each of five alpine huts in Austria. We plan to complete a good portion of the hut to hut Berliner Hohenweg in September this year.
