WALKING | A New Year’s Day Walk Around Walton Park in Liverpool

Camping with Style Camping Blog | Activities • Glamping • Travel • Adventure

After a late night spent welcoming in the New Year with close friends, I wake up with a sore head and a raging desire to drink litres of water. The voices of some of my early rising friends drift upstairs as I mentally tot up the number of cocktails and glasses of Prosecco I drank the night before.

Too many I conclude.

I wander downstairs as more bleary eyed people emerge from bedrooms, and after an indulgent breakfast of delicious pastries, we decide a New Year’s Day walk is in order.

We manage a modest 4 mile walk, but it provides me with just enough fresh air to make me feel a little more human again.

Dragging myself outdoors when all I really wanted to do is snooze on the couch feels like I’ve made the right start to the year. Despite a prevailing lethargy, I’m feeling positive, relaxed and ready to make the most of every moment of 2017. Happy New Year everyone!
