Autumn is almost here and the early part of the season can see some changeable but pleasant weather. It can be a great time to get out and about walking before the colder winter season appears and after the heat of the summer sun has decreased.
If you plan on taking some nice long walks in the Autumn there are a number of things that you should think about taking with you.
- Warm layers – Autumn can be unpredictable and what starts out as a pleasant day can turn a little chilly later. It is a good idea to pack layers and take Aran Sweaters like the ones from shamrockgift.com with you to provide you with some warmth.
- Walking shoes – with the ground needing moisture following the summer you can find that the soil becomes cracked in some areas or water laden in others. It is a good idea to wear a good pair of walking shoes or boots to help protect your feet and ankles whilst out walking on uneven terrain.
- Food- time can slip away with you when you are out enjoying the delights of nature so it is a good idea to pack a bag with drinks and snacks that you can enjoy. If you plan on making a day trip of your walk, take some lunch with you as well or plan a trip to the local pub on the way.
