Here at Ramblers Walking Holidays, we are all passionate about the great outdoors and the wonderful world we live in; so we share the challenges that now face us all with the restrictions on social distancing and going outside. Instead of leading their favourite tours, our lovely walking tour leaders have been keeping themselves busy at home, whether that's by practicing their baking and cooking, decorating the house and garden, or doing a puzzle with their cat! We are all in this together and look forward to welcoming you back on our holidays in the not too distant future!
"I should have been leading on Portugal’s Emerald Coast but I’m stuck at home with Penny - it could have been worse!"
"I should have been leading in Hassness but am now stuck at home watching over the lambs!"
"I should have been leading in the Lake District, but instead I'm stuck at home painting the garden bench."
"I should have been leading in Malta & Gozo, and the Giants Causeway. Instead I am doing lots of gardening, as well as running (just once a day of course!)"
"I’m usually in Sithonia leading several “Unspoilt Greece” tours, but am now stuck in my workshop woodturning!"
Clare & Ian Bonnick
"We should have been leading in Majorca but our dog is pleased his routine will not be disrupted."
"I should be introducing a Group of Ramblers from Wales to Croatia but sadly I’m not. The only upside is that I can get an earlier than usual start on my garden in NW Quebec."
"I should have been leading on the Greek island of Evia, but I’m stuck at home playing Greek music on the piano instead!"
"This spring I should have been leading in Portugal (Fisherman's Trail), Turkey (St. Paul's Trail) and Spain (Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves) but I'm stuck at home and have finally run out of excuses as to why I can't strip those doors!!!"
"I should be leading in Spain. Here I am, in front of the computer in my decorating shirt (£1 from the charity shop). Bedroom repainted; lounge next."
"I should be leading in The Outer Hebrides. Instead I’m enjoying walks in Harpenden"
"I would be leading in Turkey on the Lycean Way in April then in May in Greece, in the Sporades islands (Skiathos and Skopolos) and Pelion mainland. Instead I am currently still in New Zealand after leading a tour there and enjoying my daily strolls."
"I should have been leading in Portugal, instead I am doing a puzzle with help from my cat!"

"I should have been leading in Grazalema and Sierra de Las Nieves, but I'm stuck at home stripping wallpaper"
"I should have been leading in Africa but stuck at home baking instead. Yummy!"
"Should be packing for Catalan survey. Instead, I'm using that long-ignored recipe book."
“I should have been leading in Hassness but stuck at home with just a picture on my bedroom wall!"
"Instead of being mother of the bride for my daughters wedding today I’m filling in the occupational health form As an NHS returner to be deployed to the Nightingale hospital. I will probably still be there the week I should have been in Norway!"
"I should have been leading in Grazalema and Sierra de Las Nieves but I'm stuck at home stripping wallpaper."
