Here we go 2018!

We packed so much into 2017 and yet we did not sleep in a tent or bivvy once. Not one night! Moving home down to Scotland’s south west in Galloway. A quiet, more remote area of outstanding beauty and peace and a lifestyle we love. Hundreds of miles of quiet roads, forest tracks and beautiful beaches.

We still try to bike at least 100 miles every week but I think we stop more than ever. People like to chat here, they tell you things if you stop, things you will never know if you race by.

We have a big list of things we want to do, but we ticked off one a couple of days ago. In Dumfries and Galloway there are two places to watch Starlings come together in their thousands to murmurate. A spectacular dance as the sun rises or sets. We caught this one at Mersehead Nature reserve, just along the coast from us. The 1 minute film shows how special being outside in nature is. Get on your bikes, sleep in tents, go for walks and get out and do stuff in 2018.

      1. I can not remember a single one on our road bikes. We did an amazing gravel ride yesterday – 25 miles feels a long way. We plant a 60 mile off road – have a look at the Galloway Gallop event for a peek at what is here – we are rubbish at bike handling and need to improve.

  1. wow! so cool – almost looks like under water – very beautiful!!!
    A very happy (and wildly successful) new year to you 2 from Vero & Andi!

  2. I was wondering what the word for this amazing starling display was. We’ve seen it a couple of times down in Cornwall in November but its always been too dark and wet and to get decent images. A great video and an stunning thing to see 🙂
