About Anne C

Anne was introduced to walking and rock climbing on her honeymoon. Before having children she often accompanied Dave on school trips and expeditions in the UK as well as Europe, to France, Spain and Norway. Assisting with expedition training for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme while at The Glasgow Academy introduced her to more serious walking in Scotland, where she now spends May and June trying to increase her tally of Munros. A spell living in China enabled her and Dave to walk in the New Territories of Hong Kong, but for the last decade their summers have usually been spent in the Pyrenees. With retirement has come the opportunity for pleasant winter walking in Catalunya and the Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca, as well as renewed enthusiasm for back-packing; the last two summers have been rounded off with two-week treks on Corsica (GR20) and in the Ecrins area of south-east France (GR54). The Tour de Vanoise is planned for 2011.
