  • My Adventures in the Lake District

    Posted on 21/05/2014 by David in Fashion & Design Exhibitions.

    Hello friends, It’s 10pm over here as I’m writing a very quick blog about my 2nd day in the Lake District. I’ve just had a truly amazing day which saw me and my boyfriend climb the Helvellyn mountains. It certainly wasn’t the Everest but it was a good 8 hour walk with the highest point reaching 950 metres/3,116ft and yes, I did a bit of mountain scrambling too which was fun when it was easy and not so much fun when it was right on the edge of the precipice *gasp*

    Everyone seemed super equipped for the day except Lee and I who were wearing our shabby but comfortable pairs of jeans. No Me-Made-May’14 today I’m afraid, I’m sure I would have dazzled the adoring crowd around but it would have been a tad inappropriate.

    Me at the top. Didn’t I look happy to have a break?


    The scenery was absolutely outstanding…


    And after the effort, time to chill by the lake for the two of us. Lee shows his “walk in the park” relaxed expression while I look well and truly f***ed.


    Right, just stuffed my face at the same time as I wrote this and time now for a hot shower, some TV and then a good night sleep. Really wanted to share that moment and amazing place with you all. Legs are shattered but morale is high!

    Have a great evening everybody!

    Magnifique site, cela me rappelle mon séjour près du lac de Génos Loudenvielle dans les Pyrénées il y a 3 ans environ….
    Je m’aperçois que ta barbe a bien poussé, histoire de changer de conversation lol ! Lee toujours aussi beau 🙂
