    We have many great and worthy gardens.

    But we are possibly not as famed gardeners as the Japanese.

    Japanese gardens and parks are incredible. But all of them have serious problems. Japanese gardeners build a garden which looks like nature. As it would have been existed for thousends of years. It´s imagination. But these gardens die soon, because this "manmade nature" has often no real roots to the grounds, to the environment. It´s not really nature, it´s more a show. Really well done. But those gardens will die quickly or the gardener have to work very hard with great effort to maintain them. Visually japanese gardens are absolute brilliant.

    I dont know much about Japanese gardens, or gardens at all, but some of the temple gardens in Japan are hundreds of years old.

    The Japanese, of course, do suddenly slap a garden down in the most unpromising circumstances, (a plate, say) including mature trees, and can make that garden look as if it had been there forever, you are perfectly right, but I dont think such temporary constructions are typical of their work.

    (Anymore than bonsai is)

    I'll offer a wash, meal and maybe a bed if your in the NE Scotland at some point :)

    I've had a great time walking around UK - nothing as grand as yourself but I know what it's like to be outside for weeks at a time - how liberating it can be, and how great a hot bath and good meal feels.

    I've often thought about walking the circumference of the uk, I've walked at some points the width and length but not right around the edge.

    Welcome and if you find yourself anywhere near Pembrokeshire I can offer you a dry place to sleep and good food we have a caravan on our own ground with no amenities other than the afore mentioned.

    Thanky you very much. All of you are so friendly. Is that normal for people in GB or is it a speciality of British Bushcrafters? :)

    Pembrokeshire looks great, it is on my way, you have a coastal path, so yes - it sounds good for a visit. Thanks alot.:)

    Honestly, Lancashire looks exactly like how germans irmagine Great Britain. Very beautyful landscapes and natur. Incredible. But that will become my major-problem in GB because you have so many great and beautyful landscapes in GB. Hiking around Great Britains coast means about 4,500 kilometers, but with all detours my possible route has about 13,800 kilometers. But I think every step will be worth to be done. I´m sure.
    So yes please, I really like to walk with you for a while. It´s always nice to meet people, learn from them, talk about life and experiences, successes and fails (of which I have alot) :)

    Oh, that´s easy to do because in my backpack is all I possess. It´s about 60 kilogram of equipment. I will make a list and some photos. In Germany the equipment-freaks want to know always absolute everything incl. producer, price, size and so on. Many parts are not really bushcrafty. But I will do my very best.:)
