Looking to pack an exciting, active vacation into a short timeframe? Trail running might be the answer! In retrospect, it’s surprising trail running took as long to catch on as it did.

Walking vs. Hiking: Setting out on Foot in the UK and Ireland

If you’re a bit of an Anglophile, you’re probably prepared for the most common UK terms that cause confusion to the North American speaker – across the pond chips are crisps, an aubergine is an eggplant, and pants are underwear.
