Although not an ‘exotic’ destination the water in the Lake District is very soft and myself and Lynn have had unpleasant reactions to drinking tap water there. We have been visiting The Lakes as a sixsome since 2007 and Lynn and I have had to resort to drinking bottled water. Not only that but I do tend to dehydrate very quickly resulting in headaches. This year however I had an alternative solution, the Water –to – go bottle. Each morning I was able to confidently fill the bottle from the stream which runs past the hotel; sipping from it regularly on our many walks – no headaches, even though the temperature was unseasonally high and the water tasted good too – cool and fresh all day.
