Are you tired of the same old routine, where your get-togethers with friends often involve crowded pubs and noisy night outs in the bustling heart of London? Well, we recently found the perfect remedy for this. We gathered our friends and embarked on a delightful winter walk in the countryside just an hour and a half outside of London. Our destination? The picturesque Leith Hill in Surrey.
Meeting Point: The Plough Inn, Abinger
We kick-started our day by meeting up at 10 in the morning. The rustic charm of this centuries-old pub was the perfect setting to prepare for the 12-kilometre hike that lay ahead.
Exploring Leith Hill
With three four-legged companions, Kygo, Bertie, and Buddy, in tow, we began our trek through the woodlands surrounding Leith Hill. The brisk winter air fuelled our spirits as we followed the winding trails.
Our secret weapon to keep us warm on this chilly day - the new Booby Hoodie. Thanks to its heavyweight and fleeced lining, we were snug as a can be, even in the crisp winter weather.
The Main Purpose: Meaningful Connections
Our walk wasn't just about exercise and fresh air; it was an opportunity to connect on a deeper level with our friends. Far away from the usual distractions of city life, we found ourselves engaging in more profound conversations and even some heartfelt laughs when Adam made friends with a lost Cow. The peacefulness of the countryside provided the ideal escape and reset for a busy week ahead.
The Reward: A Hearty Roast
With 12 kilometres under our belts, we returned to The Plough Inn, where a sumptuous roast awaited us. The perfect reward for our efforts.
In the end, our winter walk to Leith Hill was not just a chance to get out of the city, but also an opportunity to nurture our friendships in a more meaningful way. We encourage you to follow our lead. Wrap up warm in your Booby Hoodie, gather your friends, and head out for a winter walk in the countryside. It's a refreshing change from the usual routine and a fantastic way to strengthen your bonds with the people who matter most.
