This weekend, as mentioned below, we were in St Albans. A lovely town with plenty of shops and some great restaurants. We just fancied a random weekend away, but while we were there did a spot of shopping too! We bought ourselves a BIG rucksack each; maybe for walking when we build up the courage to carry all our stuff, but also for trips away and mostly for festivals…anyone who’s done the trek from car to campsite at many festivals knows the pain, and a big rucksack seems the least painful way to get everything from A-B. We both favoured the Berghaus models and went for similar versions, though mine is slightly smaller and meant to be better for girls 🙂 Also got some myself some spare boot laces (thought they could have given us them for free as we were spending £200, but alas no luck).

While we were away we did a nice little walk near St Albans…a circular starting at Lemsford, incorporating the Lea Valley Way and Hertfordshire Way (I think). A nice easy walk with good sights and views and some rhubarb for sale as a bonus!

Using sid’s rucksack for the first time today…boy can you get a lot in it!?! And he reports it still feels very light.
