More to come later, but here’s a quick update.
I DID IT. I have walked the length of the British mainland. Land’s End to John O Groats. My feet have trodden roughly 1186 miles. It’s taken 88 days of walking and also I’ve had 7 rest days.
I am going to finish my journey in the Shetland Isles, but I won’t walk up through the island chain. I’ll walk in a few circles instead. I feel quite fulfilled already in terms of achieving something out of the normal day to day stuff.
I’ll post more thoughts on the walk later. Right now I’m as happy as those skylarks that have sung to me for several months now. days. I feel alive and I feel privileged and grateful to have seen this country close up from on foot. Sounds corny but to me these truly are Isles of Wonder.
