After a restful flight, we were greeted by a private driver holding a sign with our names, whisking us away to our hotel in London.

Our first day of walking led us through picturesque landscapes, with opportunities to hunt for fossils in Charmouth and marvel at the stunning views from Golden Cap, the highest cliff on the southern coast of England. As we made our way to West Bay, we found ourselves lost in conversation, rediscovering the simple joy of each other’s company. The following day, the trail took us to Abbotsbury, where we wandered through the quaint village, admiring its thatched cottages and historic charm, grateful for this time to slow down and appreciate the beauty around us.

Venturing inland along The Ridgeway, we were awestruck by the ancient barrows and panoramic views stretching out before us. Each step brought us closer together, sharing in the wonder of nature’s majesty. Returning to the coast, we marveled at the sight of Durdle Door, a natural limestone arch rising from the sea, a testament to the power of erosion and time. Our day ended in Lulworth Cove, a secluded haven nestled between cliffs, where we reveled in the peace and tranquility of our surroundings.
