In the current climate, there is a growing awareness of our impact to nature and the beautiful world we live in. In response, many of us are beginning to question our comsumeristic and wastefulness and living habits and opt for real 'green' sustainable alternatives.

Gail is very keen to live life with as little impact/cost to the environment as possible. She is able to travel to several of the walks either by train, bus or even bicycle! You can do the same with Walk2Unwind. Reducing your carbon footprint is very satisfying and fulfilling as you :

The one-way journey opportunity is a fantastic thing. In this way Gail can walk a fabulous route up Snowdon starting at Pen y Pass, where it is normally a nightmare to park, and then descend down a different face down to another valley. She can walk from her house, leaving at 8:00, catch a train, then a bus, set off walking up Snowdon by 9:40 up one fabulous track, walk down along and down a stunning ridge, catch another bus, then a train, and a final walk to her house, to be home by 18:45 ! All in all a wonderful day.
