This is not actually Jimmy’s first trip overseas.
In September 2002 I accompanied an aged relative on a trip to her childhood home in the South Tyrol. Joyce had forgotten that when she wrote the “Who We Are” section.
Other than that she’s done a pretty good job, with some stretchers maybe. We have now arrived at Ennerdale Bridge after a very pleasant walk from Cleator. We took the route over a fell (or hill) called Dent, with a spectacular view from the top. We’ve settled into a hotel where there’s WiFi in the room, and Joyce has showed me how to use her iPad. But pretty soon I’ll want to go for a walk without my pack before dinner, and she’ll want to get back with you. Looking forward to a bigger day tomorrow, but really enjoying today. —your old friend Jimmy
