Latest world walk updates - from Oxford, England! Back on home turf! Will now be here for a spell, as the posts below explain.

April 2019

Day 202 to 213

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Predictably, I spent mine, you guessed it, walking. This time in wonderful Wales - updates below, sent from rustic Danywenallt Youth Hostel near Brecon.

Day 189 to 199

I had the good fortune to kiss the famous Blarney Stone this week on my wanderings, so, apologies in advance if I've blathered on even more than usual but Ireland's lush beauty is enough to bring out the poet in all of us.

Sit! Forrest! Sit!

This is Chippewa Square in Savannah, where Forrest Gump perched in that iconic scene at the end of the Oscar-scooping 1995 best film. My Gump pose is not at all convincing but, to be fair, my freshly shorn Tom Hanks hair is spot on.

Day 155 to 168

Phew, finally made it to the east coast by the skin of my teeth. Hard to believe it's been nearly six months and 2700 miles on the road: a hard road sometimes for sure but one full of wonders that I've been so lucky to complete.

February 2019

Day 146 to 154

Hello y'all, as they say in the South. Well, in less than two weeks I hope to be plunging into the sea at Savannah in celebration, having walked from the west coast of America to the east coast (provided my visa hasn't expired!).

Day 137 to 145

2019-05-09T07:39:31+01:00February 18th, 2019|USA|

Alabama is now done and dusted. I was put up by so many trusty locals here I've lost track. Whether in Mexican restaurants, church halls, funky lakeside apartments or mobile homes, Alabama has been very good to me.

Day 127 to 134

This post is all about lush and complicated Mississippi. Mississippi is my smallest, quickest state to date but made a huge impact, its beauty, its history, its contradictions.
