I bought some of walking poles from the camping shop. I got 2 for the price of 1.
They are quite funky, and it is weird to feel that it is hard to slip with those things. I don’t feel like an old lady at all, but ‘an explorer’.
I am looking forward to trying them out on my footpath home. I look like someone who is ‘well prepared’ for the snow! OK, it feels a bit nuts at first, but then it feels even more nuts to walk on snow and ice WITHOUT them!
