There are certain unpleasant things that can be ignored when on a long hike. The biting insects, the sweaty heat, or the heavy backpack weighing you down as you struggle up the hill are just a few things that can make a long hike feel even longer. The worst though is when you have wet feet. Not only is the big “F” words (Foot Fungus) an imminent threat, but the squishy, squeaky sound can reverberate throughout the wild like a belch in church. There are several perils to hiking with wet feet and any man or woman should be well prepared before making that decision to trek through the swampy marshes wearing nothing but ankle socks and running shoes.

I am of the belief that the Lake District is indeed one of the best places in the world as it has so much to offer. Whether you are looking to holiday there or live there, it has something for everybody. I have travelled to a lot of European holiday destinations and have paid a lot more than I would for a week at the Lakes and I must say that the foreign holiday resorts couldn’t boast half of what the Lakes can. Of course, the great British weather can be unpredictable but with plenty to fill your time indoors and out, an appearance by that illusive sun is merely a bonus.
If you ever find yourself planning a trip to or a hike in the woods it is important that you be prepared. It is important to have some knowledge of the animals that live in the area that you are planning to visit. Not all creatures are cute and cuddly.

Sitting down by the crackling warmth of the campfire is the perfect ending to the night. Adding in some great stories or some songs to sing can help to take it to the next level.
Staying in a self-catering cottage or accommodations may seem like roughing it to some people. Just the idea of cooking during a vacation will make some people’s skin crawl. But for the real “rough” self-catering experience you have to take to the wilderness. You can’t get anymore self-catering than camping.
