World Walk Update

Thanks for your kind birthday messages. I'm not big on birthdays and usually bury my head in the sand and shut down FB. But this year was spent in semi isolation - albeit happily - and it was especially good to hear from friends and family.

November 2019

Day 409 to 424

Istanbul! Overjoyed to have made it! Overlooking the mighty Bosphorus as I write - it was dark when I walked into the city on Tuesday but I plan to take a plunge later to celebrate. Water likely to be a bit parky and polluted but it has to be done!

Day 393 to 408

Hello from the Bulgarian boonies! Wow, what a fortnight or so. I've slalomed across Sofia and plodded through Plovdiv, bivvied in barns and horse paddocks, pitched my tent in fields, farms and campsites and stayed in a few hostels/hotels and best of all, with several lovely, trusting local families.

Ok, here goes again, a last splash from Serbia, starting with a sleep in a haystack, which I mentioned briefly last time, but sparked so much haystack nostalgia (mostly big, plastic wrapped bales now) that I've included the full post...

Day 364 to 376

Some soundbites from spellbinding Serbia - including busted axles, bivvies in barns and bars, heavenly (and hostile) hostels, orchards galore and some indomitable souls. Oh, and Del Boy and Rodney...

August 2019

Day 323 to 338

A cherrypick of some highlights from the latest Austrian stage of the world walk, much of it hiking alongside the legendary Danube, which passes through 10 countries, more than any other river in the world.
