Welcome, I'm Kate.

If you're looking for outdoor kit suggestions, walking routes, cycling adventures,
random snippets of naval history and mountains, then you're in the right place!
If you follow any naval history accounts or, indeed, any of the maritime Greenwich accounts on Twitter, you can’t have failed to see that today is the anniversary of the funeral of Horatio Nelson. As such, I felt it only suitable to join in with a short history of what was, for the time, an incredibly extraordinary day.
Whewwwwww, what a year it’s been! I remember when I was a kid my mum would always say how fast the year had flown by, and I thought it was because she was old and silly… Yet, here I now am, turning 29 this week and wondering where the hell 2018 went?
Without further ado, here are a few of my highlights from each month!
Winter is well and truly here. The days are darker, the evenings are chillier and the wind is becoming more and more biting. I never used to feel the cold, but have started to more this year for some unknown reason, so when 8K Flexwarm offered to send me one of their heated jackets to review, I couldn’t say no.
