Heather Waring is our Guest: Podcast Ep 186

Heather Waring is our guest today and her business is WomenWalkingWomenTalking. She’s walked the Camino de Santiago, the Great Wall of China and the Pilgrims’ Way and many shorter more local walks too.

She decided to talk to us about How to Pee in the Wild, all very Bear Grylls though there was no talk (if memory serves) of us drinking it. Phew.

I’ve never been there before when it was a ticket-only affair either. I bought my ticket last December and excitement was at fever pitch by the time I rocked up at the […]

My Bounteous Tomato Crop 2011

During my gap year I have been dabbling with a spot of gardening. This constitutes booking the gardener and discussing the overall plan with him whilst washing up his tea-stained cups. Asking friends to plant geraniums on my birthday in April, which I am still enjoying today. Buying hanging baskets and replacing them when they die off due to my lack of watering commitment. And planting six bags of tomatoes with Sharon and Nicola against all advice. Here’s what happened. Nicola was given eight tomato plants for free at Charing Cross railway station. Ben grew three tomato plants from seeds […]
