MICA Travels are a group of family and friends that are dedicated to raise awareness of Bile duct cancer and sepsis, two illnesses that claim 1000’s of lives each year and are barely known about. I lost my wife; our sons lost their mother and many others lost a dear friend. We as group will be doing a series of endurance activities to raise money for these charities as a lasting memorial to Carol, so that our sudden loss is not in vain.

On the 27th of March at 10am myself and my friend Ryan wil...

Final fell of the first trip.... Latrigg

Posted in Our Fundraising Journey by Jasmine Hall
Latrigg Summit

Our last fell as the week drew to a close, the rain was here to stay, and as we all were a bit achy and tired, we settled on a small (but perfectly formed) walk to end the week on.

This walk was one close to our hearts, as it was one that we had done with Carol, and had a lot of fun building a snowman, and probably throwing snowballs at each other, at the top for us to see from our cottage we we...

It all started with a little wander......

Jetty on Derwent Water

Morning: Lets have a lazy day and just wander around Keswick today. Afternoon: 10.76 mile walk.

Set off the day with no real goals for the day, gaiters were packed as a ‘just in case’ and all we really wanted to do was to visit Hope Park (my personal favourite spot in the Lake District) and maybe wander on up to Friars Crag, which no matter the weather, always serves incredible views of the lake...

Oo ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla Walla Crag

Posted in Our Fundraising Journey by Jasmine Hall

First fell complete!

With an unexpected late start to the day, due to a very mild asthma attack but no asthma pump in possession (oops), a quick trip to a pharmacy in Carlisle sorted us out, but we started out thinking the day would be a write off. However, a speedy recovery and with the afternoon blue skies calling us outside, we decided to tackle one of the smaller fells – Walla Crag.
