And the sun is shining! 

Good morning everyone!
So today is a wonderful day as the lovely Karen and Bob are joining me on route for a days walking. We are in Flitwick heading to Luton. We had a wonderful breakfast this morning… Eggs eggs eggs! 

We have a 10 mile walk ahead of us which will be nice, not too far for the newbies 😉 

So close to home it is incredible I don’t think it will set in until a few days after I’ve finished. I want to go on the adventure all over again, I am going to miss walking so so much. I just have found such a happiness in walking. Everyday I look forward to walking. It’s an incredible thing and there will be so many more adventures to come! 

The last few days have been pretty similar just getting the miles done, the roads are busier, there is less nature for me to immerse myself in, it is just a different experience altogether. I mean there are so many people! And no one says hello to me anymore. I will miss the happy villages, the quiet peaceful soundless skies. I feel finally at one with myself. Glorious!

Karen and are are getting ready in our beautiful manor hotel, and off we go!

And the sunshine came out

oh we have had a lovely couple of days of sunshine and tomorrow they say it is still going to be lovely again. I have ever growing strange tan lines, the sock lines are the most flattering 😉 

The middle part of the UK is rather dull not much to differentiate one day from the next lots of sweet country villages and windy roads to navigate round. Very pretty and sweet but not where I would chose to actually live. I am missing London today I must say. 

So the last couple of days I walked a variety of some days alone and some with my dad and some afternoons with my mum. It’s all just going very well really. My feet are happy little walker feet. My face is brown and rosy and the tent is now up and back in action! Well the new one. We purchased an Out Well, much better. No offence Vango but your Icaruas tent was pretty shite. We are much happier and I am really growing attached to my little house and roll matts. 

All in all a happy, simple few days and really looking forward to having a day off to take photos, not to stop walking of course. I could walk forever… My feet just want to keep going and going. Maybe my next walking adventure will be The Great Wall of China? 

I am just about to go to bed safely wrapped up in my sleeping bag. We face the outskirts of Leeds tomorrow as we are currently just East of the main city. Keeping as rural as possible. 

Happy Hump Day! X

The daily feet regime 

Just thinking aloud…

This morning I met a man that enlightened me. I felt uplifted in seeing the good work he does out in South Africa, it brought me back to the reality of why I am doing this walk in the first place. It has made me want to write a little… so here goes…

I often get rather bogged down on the nitty gritty, let’s remember what this walk is actually all about, why did I start this in the first place?

Kids that need support, that do not have a family, a mother to hold their hand and pick them back up when they are low, they are the ones that I am walking for!

Someone asked me the other day “What will you do when you are so low and want to give up?” Well all I have to do is think these kids cannot just give up, they cannot just walk away from what is happening in their life so why should I? All I need to do is get up and walk, then sleep and eat, and then just get up and walk again and again until it is done. Simple, right?

I have this overwhelming drive and inner soul that is always wanting to escape and I think some people think I am one big joke. “Is this girl for real?” I am for real, I am not a joke and I have so much to give.

Thank you for reading, maybe today is your day to stop and make a difference?

My new Hena obsession

I have started to get absolutely obsessed with Henna. I got myself 6 cones off eBay and I am Henner-ing at every minute I possibly can, I am running out of skin to Henna! I know this isn’t really walk related but it does inspire me and keep me creative. Enjoy my Henna images, I am getting better day by day.. I mean I am not good… yet, watch this space!
