Just a quick one to introduce myself
Looks like a great community, and a great site!
My name is Adam, I'm 20 and I'm a freelance Graphic Design & Web Developer with my own online business.
I live just outside the Lake District in Britain, and spend most my weekends trekking the hills and working in quaint little pubs with my laptop (the joys of freelance!)
I'm eager to go trekking across Europe next year (after reading Clear Waters Rising) and I'm currently trying to spend as much time as possible researching and planning my trip.
So, one of the things to check off my list, join a a community of other like minded, and hopefully inspirational backpackers to learn from ;-)
