Finalist with Newbie Blog Award!

I am very proud to say that my blog got me finalist in the Newbie Outdoor Blog Award.

Thank you to Shaun at Simply Hike for sorting out the award and the fantastic communication, my first ever trophy, and a very nice one at that!

My walk blog is probably going to wrap up now for summer and as the walk is over I feel it wouldn’t be worth me carrying on writing, but I might just pick it back up at a later date with a new adventure, so keeps your eyes out! Enjoy your summer everyone and thanks again for all the support, it has been an incredible journey.

Goodbye for now x

The last day! 

Hello everyone! 

I tried to post last night but it failed and I was so tired. I have been feeling more and more tired as the last week has come to a close I think my mind is ready to stop. 

Today is my last and final day walking! My goodness I can’t believe it is over and I am actually saying it. What a journey…. 

I want to thank all the lovely people for their donations, their support, their genuine kindness, we humans can sometimes pull together and I really have felt blessed. 

A huge thank you goes to Karen for putting up with me yesterday and my madness! I have such belief in TWOWEEKS and the work that is being done. I am proud to walk for the charity, very very proud to be apart of it all. 

I think this walk is going to bring big changes to my life and I do feel like a calmer better person. I am ready for what is to come! I am the happiest I have ever been and I think it is because I have left go of my fears and also all that nature I’ve been surrounded by. Glorious! 

A huge thank you to the lovely ladies at The Old Bell for the lovely scallops and a little smile, that was a hard day so thank you. 

Here is to the last day and to the many more adventures to come! Today I walk from Harrow to Twickenham, my final destination, a final 11 miles. 

Thank you to everyone and of course any last donations, you know what to do! Click here

One last round of photos from the last few days of walking, I covered Bedford to Flitwick to Luton to St. Albans. 

See you on the other side! 

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
   

Good morning 

A few stories to share after a little slacking on the blogging. 

So I’m now walking alone and have been for the last two days which has been nice, my bag has been getting to me a bit as I load up on food it is just such a lump! I haven’t had a day off since last Thursday so Sunday I will rest I believe. 

So the last week has been magical we’ve had such a wonderful time, lots of sun, lots of laughing and just getting those miles done! Meeting just a whole bunch a beautiful people welllll only one small hiccup, there has to be one! 

So we decided to do a few public footpaths one day, you know… Cut the miles down. We were following the path exactly and we came across an amazing, what looked like unused airstrip. We played aeroplanes as you do and then followed the path through a farmers farm, which I’ve done before with no hassle. But then we reached a point where we weren’t sure where the path went and we’re doing some map reading and suddenly two shot gun fires are fired over in our direction. 50 metres away! The noise! The fear struck through my soul. I thought this is it this is the end of me. Not even going to make it to the end of the walk! Ha. 

But no it was fine, it was either the farmer warning us to F off his land, a warning that there was a microlight coming in for landing. Or who knows. Someone sure had the grump with us. But what an adrenalin rush that was! 

Apart from that everything is going swimmingly. I am now in Chelveston, in a very cosy clean sort of apartment style B and B which is very nice. Great owners. A huge thank you for putting me up! 

A couple of days and I will be in Bedford and then Karen and Bob join me. I am getting closer to the end and all those people who I know sercretly didn’t believe in me, well I think I might actually make it! Just watch these little legs GO.
