Jurassic Coast

A trip well worth doing if you are into hiking/ mild trekking/ walking adventures/ general fitness is a walk along the jurassic coast. Situated in Dorset, its a world heritage site, with rocks over 200 million years old. We joined a walk that took us from Kimmeridge Bay to Worth Matravers (route mapped below). It was an early start (8am), so not your usual lie in weekend but it was totally worth it. We had a clever and funny old man as our walk guide, keenly stopping at every opportunity to tell us the history behind the many things we came across. The weather stayed on our side too which made it more enjoyable. There was an eclectic bunch of people in our group, and we were by far the youngest and first timers. We stopped at the top of a cliff for a nice spot of lunch (bacon sarnies we had bribed our hotel for) and were jealous of everyone elses lunch (sandwiches, crisps and chocolates!) we could have really done with some junk food for a sugar rush. We stopped in a bat cave and in a mud cave and before we knew it were on the minibus back. We got talking to a lady who had travelled all over and been on some amazing adventures with her husband and kids – definitely inspiring way to end the walk.
