Not quite go. But pretty close.

Best read to ‘Waltzing Matilda’ but somewhat embarrassing if you do if there are others around. But then again reading my blog qualifies as embarrassing even if no one’s around.



Once an old teacher and his little sister

Headed off to England to walk day after day

We’ll trudge and we’ll tramp and walk and walk

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.





Ahead lay hill, dale, cairn and tarn

Each day a labour and certainly no play

But over, around, to and through we go

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



Starting at Edale and heading towards the north

Through the peaks of Yorkshire hey, hey, hey

What? Nothing compared with the TMB

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



Traversing the peat and bogs of the Pennines

We’ve got some great places to stay

Comfy beds and English breakfasts

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



Walking in the English Autumn

Means the skies are cloudy and grey

But equipped with my trusty boots and red coat

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



We head to Hadrian’s Wall and Vindolanda

Where the Romans used to play

Once Brewed and Twice Brewed a couple of favs

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



A couple of 35km days in Scotland

Julie will enjoy those, well, she may

Over the beautiful heather and among the grouse

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



From pub to pub, an ale here, a cider there

Just a pity we have to pay

A drink, a meal, a tale or two

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.



And then at the end to Edinburgh we go

To see Lee. Hooray, hooray.

But first a heap of experiences and fun

We’ll go a walking the Pennine Way.





Then several weeks after the start

Hopefully we’ll be able to say

These two ageing Aussies

Have walked the Pennine Way.



Congrats if you’ve managed to get this far. Sort of my first test for any readers.

It’s my intention to blog each day or most days during my walk. Usually internet connections are good but some locations seem rather remote (by UK standards) so availability may dictate the frequency of blogs. Any I miss I’ll use that excuse, even though the truth may have more to do with ale and/or cider!

I leave tomorrow, so until then.

Ciao for now.
