Lake District

Hello again :) 

So I've just finished my first year of university studying geography and last week we went on a field trip to the Lake District to finish off the year after exams. It was a module so the work we did did count but I have to say the trip was a lot better then revising. 

I used to go to the Lake District when I was little quite a lot as we went camping and day trips out, however I haven't been for a couple of years so was really lovely to go back and see the amazing views again :)

We were there for 4 days and on the Monday and the Wednesday it rain which was a bit of a pain because we had to work in the rain! On the Tuesday we went for a walk up one of the hardest hills I've ever had to walk up, the walk totalled 7 hours and quite a lot of it we had to use our hands as we scrambled to the top. I did moan a bit as it was long and hard but I have to say the views were worth it.

The pictures were taken on my phone so they aren't the best of quality and I have to say no photo really shows a true representation of a view like this, I love fell walking just for the view from the top, if you've never been I would definitely recommend going just make sure you have all the equipment and you have some standard of fitness because they do take it out of you.   

On the trip we stayed in these caravans need Windermere and they were so lovely, they had a large living area and really nice kitchens and as in most caravans the sleeping areas where tiny with 2 very small beds squished in.

I really enjoyed the trip and thought it was such a good way to end the year and get to know everyone a little better :) 

Have you ever been to the Lakes? And if so what was your favourite thing? 

Hope you enjoyed reading and will speak to you soon 
Bye :)


  1. Ahh Uni's over for the year? HUZZAH!

    My sister is stressing at the moment as she's stil got her exams going on.

    We're hoping to go to the lake district after she's finished. Never been before, it looks amazing! Bet it's even better with the sun out!



    1. Yeah I know, my university finishes really early! Moving out tomorrow which is scary.
      I'm sure she will do fine :)
      Yeah I think its such a lovely place with so many views and walks, when the sun is out its so pretty but when its raining its not at great :P


  2. Hi! I'm just finishing first year geography too! :D Unfortunately we weren't as lucky to go to the Lake District. No, no we got to go to Slapton in October - it was cold and hard work :( Glad you enjoyed your field trip though! :)
