Hi all, my name is Dave, live in England, rapidly nearing my 50th birthday, married for 24 years, have two teenage children.

I worked as a service engineer in my 20's and was lucky enough to travel (and work) around Europe and the far East.

Most of my travels since have been "family holidays" but as my children are getting older we can be a bit more adventurous with our choice of location/s.

I enjoy walking, (enjoy it even more if there is a pub en route) planning to do some moderate climbs with my daughter next spring in the UK.

Have just bought my self a Nikon P80 super zoom, now have a good excuse for getting out and about to photograph places and things

Looking forward to reading the posts and other peoples adventures.
Cheers, Dave

Hey Dave,

Welcome to Travellerspoint! Whereabouts in the UK are you planning to hike? I've heard some really great things about the Scottish highlands, but I suppose the walks in there are probably a bit more challenging.

Anyway, nice to have you here on TP:)

Thanks for the welcomes :)
Would like to do some climbing in Scotland, similar sort of grade to Wales and the Lakes, just a bit further away, and a bit more expensive to get there !
