Gone Walking (on Islay of course)

Islay Events written in stencil

Right, that's it. I'm off. OK, not right now, but soon. I've mentioned it on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 2011 Islay walking week is just around the corner now. Within the next 24 hours the Islaymobile (if you spot me on the road let me know, you can recognise it by the Islay sticker) will be leaving Aldermaston Wharf for the drive up to Carlisle and then on to Islay the next day. While on Islay the priority is obviously walking:

You can find all the details about the walks on the WalkIslay page, I've also written about it on the blog at Islay Walking Week 2011 Heads Up and WalkIslay 2011 Illustrated Programme & Map.

In addition to the walking there will hopefully be more:

First of all meeting as many as possible old and new friends, be it on the walks, be it elsewhere. I'm hoping to take a lot of new pictures of course, if possible also video. As I don't know yet if I can pull it off no details yet, but I'm also hoping to make progress on a fun photography project.

There will be the obligatory distillery visits (I hope Laphroaig might have some Triple Wood in the distillery shop?) and brewery visit. Hopefully also some good food and live music in the evenings. Have I missed anything? Probably. If so let me know in the comments…

This blog will probably take a break until I'm back, but network/signal permitting I'm planning to post ‘live updates’ on my Isle of Islay Posterous account. Good night for now, more once I'm on my way (on the Posterous account).
