About me

About me

My name is Josy and I am a Londoner now, but I grew up in the countryside in Cambridgeshire, so I am still a country bumpkin at heart. I am keen to escape the city and go for long walks when I can.

My husband and I made a New Year’s resolution to walk more back in 2016. Most of our New Year’s resolutions only last a few days, but somehow walking suited us both, so we’ve been exercising our legs ever since. We started by exploring the Capital Ring around London in 2016. This is a fantastic way to explore the city so walk it if you can!! In 2017 we’ve started a longer walk, along the North Downs Way from Farnham to Dover. We also end up walking on holiday, so I’ll slowly add more fun walks around the world as I get around to it.

Other things you might want to know about me:

  • I’m hoping to move to Vancouver later this year.
  • I speak Japanese and work for the Japan Foundation London. Give me a shout if you’d like advice about learning Japanese. I’m happy to bombard you with useful links.
  • I used to live in Nara, (in West Japan) which has to be one of the loveliest places on the planet. Half the city is a giant park with over 10,000 deers that wander around. If you are planning a visit to Japan, add that to your list!!
  • I have a slightly dappy and very funny cat, Monty.
  • I LOVE good food (this might be why I need to walk so much!) I used to review quite a lot on Yelp. So if you’d like to see thousands of food related posts and photos, that’s where I add them.
  • I also love jumping photos.

  1. Neil and I try to get out and about with Isla, Skye has some lovely places to explore. You guys should visit. We’ve paved around the house and now I do laps like when I was younger and more in shape, ha. And I’ve heard part of the West Highland Way is wheelchair-accessible, honestly must look into that.

    And we bought a treadmill last night, does that count? Haha.


    1. Thanks for popping by!

      It totally counts! Although it is less fun on a treadmill! I find that I want to read or listen to something at the same time if the view isn’t changing the whole time!!

      Oh my goodness, I would LOVE to visit Skye! I think we will run out of time before we leave the UK, but I’ll drag my husband North once we come back to the UK!

  2. I just dicovered your blog through Fatty McCupcake travel tag and I will give you a follow! I am Canadian but now live in the UK… I’ve never been to Vancouver but I’ve bene told it’s one of the best place in Canada…. Good luck with the move!

    1. Oooh yay!

      That is one of my favourite blogs. She has made me giggle out loud so many times! 😀

      I just took a peek at yours and followed you right back! It sounds like we’ll be swapping countries for a while, so we must have some things in common.
