So, with my next trip still in the research and planning stages, I thought I would make the most of the glorious sunshine we have been having and organise a local mini adventure with a dear friend of mine.
Living here in Bournemouth, I am lucky enough to have the rolling hills of the Purbecks right on my door step.
One of my all time favourite coastal walks encompasses the majestic chalk ridge coastline from St Aldhelms head to Kimmeridge. It is a relatively easy 18-20km stroll (slight variations in routes are available) though does involve some steep climbs and descents so sensible footwear is advisable.
Finally agreeing on a day, my friend and I dusted off our walking boots, grabbed a quick picnic and set off for the rural Dorset village of Kingston which is where we dumped the car and began our journey.
