Writes of way

by backpackingbongos

I have got a fair few blogs on my google reader now and I look forward to new posts from each and every one of them.  Some are great for their coverage of gear in great detail whilst others mix up trips in wild and remote places alongside great writing.

Of the latter, one blog which I always look forward to reading is Writes of Way.  Pete is a bit of a Jura Jedi and it was one of his earlier blog posts on Jura that got my wilderness head salivating late last year.  If you have never been then Jura is one of the best places in the UK to get a wilderness fix.  A remote island without the comfort of easy paths and walking with deer and wild goats watching your every move.  I have been once but I am already hooked, Petes blog gives me my fix every now and then.

With the most recent blog post having the title ‘ Terrible Tussocky Torture and Tumultuous Torrents’ who could resist?

Pete recently got a guide book to Jura, Islay and Colonsay published by Cicerone which I will try to review soon.  If you have any questions about these magical islands he is the man to ask.

Writes of way can be found here.
