I asked her if she wants to come, she replied 'What's it you have in England that we don't have here?'. I struggled to answer that. I'm sure we'd have loads of fun and it would be good for her to learn some English, too. But how do I convince this kid to come? Anybody any ideas, please?

  • Is it possible to become lost in Great Britain with no way out?

    Best answer: Make up your mind - in England or in Great Britain? Basically, no, not literally.

    Best answer: Make up your mind - in England or in Great Britain?

    Basically, no, not literally. There is nowhere in the UK where two days walking (say, 20-25 miles) would not get you back to at least an isolated hamlet, assuming you did not walk in little circles. However there are plenty of places where getting immobilised by an injury or trapped by bad weather could become serious dangers.

    In the Lake District I have been caught on both Skiddaw and Helvellyn by low cloud setting in and visibility dropping to under 10 metres. I was equipped with map and compass, suitable clothing, etc, so it was just an interesting challenge, not a real threat, but the risks of getting lost then exhausted and hypothermic, falling down a crag or getting into a dangerous bog, are real hazards in such conditions if hikers do not have the kit and skills needed to cope.
