Belinda’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 23 Apr 2005

Location: Keswick, UK

MapTonight I work again at the pub. I'm doing 2 nights a week there & it's lots of fun. Good people to work with & the customers are easy going. I'm learning all about English accents, and it becomes increasingly interesting as the night rolls on...
I have started leading trad climbs!
Yesterday was a glorious day :-) We went to Wallabarrow Crag where I lead my first 'severe' climb. It was empowering! There is certainly a sense of satisfaction in placing your own gear rather than relying on the bolts in sports climbing. Bring it on!
I woke up this morning & all I wanted to do was CLIMB!! Instead I am working on Sarah's Thai market stall whilst she breastfeeds her newborn baby every 2 hours. Nelly is doing very well.
