After a childhood of walking holidays, and later many years of working long hours as a doctor in busy UK hospitals, I have realised the importance of spending quality time outdoors with my friends and family.

Long walks through our wonderful English countryside, scrumptious food and wonderful places to stay have always been an excellent way to recharge my batteries.

Walking was always the time that as a family we could really communicate, and it seems even more important today when life is fast and there are so many distractions. If Iím honest, my children donít always jump when I suggest a walk, but when they are out (and away from their screens), we spend some of our best times together.

Whether it's a balmy summer's day or a crisp winter's day, walking has always fuelled my soul and I am passionate to share this experience through Inspired Walking.
