Goodbye Zig, most beautiful pusscat

I am terribly sad to have to report that our beautiful Zig,Trekking in the Alps and Trekking in Provence cat, and great friend to us, died last night.
She was 18 years old and we had had the very best of times.
For those who share my love of pussycats, here she is in photos.

I'm thrilled to announce that my new additional website is now up and running, go take a look

As well as the Alps summer treks and holidays, and the winter snowshoeing, I'm now offering  walking weeks in Provence, and private guiding on a daily or weekly basis.

My first magazine cover shot!

Over the years I've had loads of articles in walking magazines but for some unfathomable reason they've never put one of my shots on the cover - until now. Hooray to Trek and Mountain who rightly claim to be the UK's leading trekking and mountaineering magazine. This mag is a breath of fresh air compared to some of the older rather staid titles on the shelves.

Take a look at the June isse (cover above) for my major article about the Tour of Mont Blanc trek.

For those of you who've already done the TMB with me you might find your photo in there and for those of you signed up for this summer you'll get an exciting taste of what's in store.
Of course the TMB and all other alpine treks should only be done with me - but you know that already, right???
