Well The Two Blondes have safely made it to the end of their Diamond Challenge DofE Gold Expedition. We have decided that the Peak District definitely deserves its designation as the first of the UK’s fab fifteen National Parks. It is stunning, we have lots to tell you but as Internet access is limited (we have enjoyed being off-grid), here is a quick summary (we have so much more to tell you):

Steep ups and downs (more ladders!)

Wonderful ridge walks

Waterfalls that fall upwards

Very happy families

Twenty pence showers (not upwards)

Noisy sheep

Fields with pavements

Bog to rival Dartmoor’s

Tors but not as we know them

Lovely campsites

Fabulous Youth Hostel

Lots more to explore

Very happy Blondes
