Travel writing and Julia Bradbury

Short-listed for the Walkopedia Travel Writing Competition with Hell's Belles and my encounter with Julia Bradbury. It's not on their website yet, but will be soon. Admittedly I wasn't the nicest of travel companions, but I do think back and laugh - actually I don't - it nearly killed me and I won't be doing any Wainwright's walks or big hills any time soon.
