Happy New Year

This year I stayed in on New Years Eve with a view to a ten-mile walk around Epping Forest on New Years Day. It was such a revelation waking without a sore head, walking through the deserted streets of London at 9am towards Bethnal Green Tube I felt a huge sense of satisfaction. The tube ride to Loughton had to be seen to be believed, most of the passengers still hadn’t made it home from their NYE parties.

Only half an hour away and Polly and I arrived at our destination for a power walk (thanks Polly, I’m still aching) through Epping. It’s so beautiful, the colours, smells and tranquility make me want to make the forest a regular destination as an escape from the concrete jungle that is London town.
