Hill walking = hiking (17/33)

When someone says hill walking think hiking in your mind. We’ve had one woman break an arm on a walk. I’ve popped a muscle off my calf bone on an easy walk. 

Walk with a hiking staff/stick. Not something we use much in America. You’ll usually need one (or two!) in Ireland and the rest of Europe. 

Wild backpacking in Ireland is still like the old days! You can camp in someone’s garden (what they call a yard, here) and they’ll invite you in for tea and/or a shower. You don’t get that much in the UK. It’s because real backpacking is still a newer sport in Ireland.
