Lake District has been on my bucket list for such a long time and I am so happy that I finally ticked off! The Lake (s) itself is a great opportunity to go back to nature, calm down and enjoy the moment.
As I said The Lake District has been one of those places I was dreaming to see for ages and totally worth it the wait.
But where to start and what to see? Even I pretend I am good when it comes to research and always check the locations in advance in terms of paths, ''dress code'', nearby facilities with The Lake District is almost impossible to predict and plan in advance. You just want to go and see everything and with the photography of the places rated from ''very bad to spectaculars'' circulated on line you can't really decide where to start from. This post is dedicated to Lodore located at Derwentwater Lake and in my opinion is one of the most beautiful footpaths which you can take. There is a stunning hotel & restaurant nearby so you can always go back there and have a cup of tea and have a bit of rest. As we travelled with our 2 years old boy, the weather wasn't great at that day very rainy, windy and cold we took a cruise from Keswick and our first stop were Lodore. Unfortunately we weren't able to rich waterfalls but the views around are totally breathtaking.
What to wear....
If you're like me and would like to look good even while you're walking into mountains my top three comfy & stylish items are:
Hunter boots are must have! They are great for long footpaths, they are waterproof which is essential and in the same time you can easily style them in the evenings too. They are perfect on the go with silky dress, denim skirt or even smart trousers.
My number two will go to thermal leggings/top. Even if you don't like wearing tights or anything underneath your trousers you can't survive without them, trust me!
Don't forget your raincoat! There are hundreds of versions online to choose.
