It seems like only yesterday we were camping in a windy valley in Wales for the 2016 UK Mega event, but here I am writing about my brief weekend fling with England’s stunning south coast, after my attendance at the 2017 UK Mega in Devon! The mega is always held on the first Saturday in August, … More England’s Jurassic Coast and the Devon Mega | The Geocaching Junkie
If you read about my day at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, you’re no doubt aware of my recent obsession with Downton Abbey (yes, I was very late to the period drama party!).

I’m not about to launch in to an argument that cachers are so amazing we couldn’t possibly be human (a future blog post, perhaps?). No, the title refers to what I now consider the theme to my week of mega fun in England and Wales. You know that song Human by The Killers? If you exchange the word … More Are we Human or are we Cachers? Geocaching at the North Wales Mega

The estate … More Super Sunday at Geolympix!
