Exmoor Cold and Pretty

I paid the price for going, but going was worth it.

For days in advance of the trip to Exmoor I had been hoping that the rotten cold I had for two weeks would go away. When it didn’t, I decided to go anyway. I wanted to see Exmoor again and not miss one of my limited opportunities to do walking that was more adventurous than a London pavement.  But I paid the price in aches, snot and coughing. The grottiness was worth it though for the pretty walking through wooded combes, along rocky headlands and over freezing moor.

  1. Exmoor’s one of the few places in Britain where I haven’t been yet.

    That damned cold is going around. I just met up with my friend Richard for a trip to the Lakes and he came complete with cold… now of course, I’ve got the damned thing. I do think fresh air is the best thing for it though…

    1. If it’s the same cold that I’ve had, then it’s an absolute, stubborn stinker of a cold. Sorry. Colds coming you want to be enjoying the mountains is really annoying. I hope you feel better soon.

      1. Actually, it doesn’t seem to be that bad as I think it’s already gone. It was merely irritating and kept making me sneeze all the time. I did feel cold and miserable for a day or so but that bit soon went too.
