With a trip like this, not everything can be expected to go to plan or run smoothly. The sooner that I accept that, the more enjoyable this trip will be. Read More

I’ll have to keep this brief. I’m currently hurtling along on my train to Birmingham Airport, where I will be spending the night before embarking on my first adventure of 2017 – Small Islands, Big Walk (yeah, I couldn’t think of a better name than that). Read More
