About D K Powell

British freelance journalist, author, writer, editor, musician, educational consultant. I lived with Wifey, Thing I (daughter) & Thing II (son) in Bangladesh for 5-6 years working for an NGO called LAMB. Wifey led the Hospital Rehab department and I used to teach O levels at the school before going full-time as a freelance writer in 2013. Now we're back in the UK learning how to be British again. When not writing or editing, I'm busy trying to complete a Masters degree in Intercultural relations in Asian Contexts and reading way too many books at once. I also drink tea - lots of it.

The Keswick to Barrow Walk

I’ve gone and done something extremely silly. I know, I know; it’s not like Ken, you’re thinking. But I have. Last year Thing I and Wifey foolishly decided to attempt the well-known Cumbrian event called ‘The Keswick to Barrow Walk’. This is – put … Continue reading
