This interesting and fun-loving book draws the reader into sharing many unique experiences of walking in the South Lake District, Bowland fells and the naturally drained conditions of the limestone link, stretching from Kirkby Lonsdale to Grange-over-Sands via Arnside, giving pleasant walk experiences during the wet winter months in England.


Leaving England behind, they catch the first flight out to their beloved Crete and villa for the summer months. Come along and enjoy the wonderful walks in the Psiloritis and Lefka Ori mountains and villages, explore the wild and beautiful gorges and visit many sites of great archaeological interest.


Read the tales of helping friends plant beetroot and artichokes, pick and tread grapes the old traditional way and watch raki being made in one of the mountain villages. Read about parties with Cretan friends in the moonlit warm evenings and BBQs in a quiet olive grove after helping friends clear the land beneath the trees. Enjoy the many experiences that the average tourist never sees.

Since retirement, Patti Trickett and her husband have pursued their favourite pastime of walking and sightseeing in England and abroad, particularly on the beautiful island of Crete and bought their pretty villa in the foothills of the Psiloritis Mountains. Living in their villa for six months of the year, they walked in the mountains and villages, explored the beautiful gorges and visited many historical sites, as well as helping their Cretan friends to plant and harvest crops and cut grapes on the sunny slopes in the N.W. region. They have enjoyed so many unique experiences the average tourist never sees. This is a happy, light-hearted book which makes you smile!
