Christmassy Berlin

Berlin's one of my favourite cities in Europe, and it was great to head out at the start of December and get to explore the Christmas markets. Berlin goes *very* festive....

Glühwein is a very important part of the Christmas Markets. Very, very important.

Weissbier is also quite important.

Foggy Peaks

One of the best bits of living in Derby for a while was how easy it was to escape to the Peak District for a stomp or a climb at the drop of a hat. Many Saturday evenings suddenly turned to quickly packing for a climb the next morning when the weather looked great.

I live in London now, but it's super important to get out of the city. We went for a wander round Kinder and Mam Tor...

Super eerily misty with 25m visibility, the whole day. 

The sun burst through for 3 minutes... 

A few tins around the campfire to warm our cockles and put the world to rights, and up to Stanage Edge on Sunday for a climb. Nice.
