The mirador near Orgiva cemetery, Alpujarras
I was a late starter – I didn’t walk until I was 16 months – but I haven’t stopped since

I’ve been blogging about hiking and running at The Walker’s Wife since August 2011.

For the first few years, my blogs were mostly about hiking in Wales; however, over the past few years we have started hiking and now living on the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal and Spain) and so I find myself writing about walking in a warm climate rather than squelching through marshland.

Somewhere along the way I decided to dip my toe into the field of travelogue writing, which is not very different to writing a blog, especially when you’re as long-winded as me!

I have now published three ebooks (also available as Amazon paperbacks):

I am currently working on a novel set in my hometown of Newport.

Writing a personal blog is much like keeping a modern-day diary, in that it provides a lasting memoir of your own life; it also means that on those grim days when it’s impossible to venture outside, Harri and I can log onto The Walker’s Wife and reminisce about the wonderful walks we’ve enjoyed together.

I make no excuse for occasionally straying into the political because I believe that, whether we like it or not, everyday life IS political. In other words, there’s no escaping politics … not even when you’re here on The Walker’s Wife website!

Why not stick around for a while and if there’s anything you’d like to know about the areas we have walked in, please ask. If I don’t know the answer, I bet Harri will.
