Urgent versus Important

 

Frustrated at the continual interruptions of modern life, I headed to a bothy in the hills to get some work done on my book. It was the most productive three days I have managed in ages!
The book – when I eventually finish it – will be available along with my nine other books on this site (Shop).

The Mountain Bothies Association exists to maintain simple shelters in remote country across Britain for the use & benefit of all who love wild & lonely places. Please support them.

    Modern life interruptions are one thing but how did you stop yourself not wanting to be out & walking all day?!!

  2. For me its cycle touring rather than walking. There is nothing that clears my head more than cycling and camping preferably somewhere remote. I have done a trip over the summer when I combined cycle touring with climbing. It felt like I was very far away from everything. No deadlines or emails, all I had to do was get up and climb or ride. Life is good 🙂 https://poppygoeswild.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/adventure-cycle-touring-with-trad-rack_27.html
