6 Uplifting Things to Do in Hay on Wye


Looking for things to do in Hay on Wye? Me (Joel) and an old friend of mine, Rob, headed to Hay on Wye for a bit of a lads weekend to catch up and enjoy a bit of kayaking.

The Lake District – 4 Must Visit Beautiful Lakes of the Lake District (Plus Some Things to Do!)

The Lake District

We thought we’d have a short break in the Lake District and we had high hopes for it! So high, it would be very difficult to live up to them. We have friends who grew up not far from the Lakes and loads of recommendations from others to visit…but it didn’t quite live up to expectations. Apologies to all you Lake District fans out there K That’s not to say we didn’t have a good time. We did. And it was a great adventure, as you’d expect from The Bumper Crew, but it just lacked…something. And that something has made this post very difficult to write. It just wasn’t as inspiring as we’d hoped.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge 2022

I’d already walked Ben Nevis and Snowdon and wanted to walk Scarfell Pike. So how better to do that than to complete the National Three Peaks Challenge with Dek?
