The European kick off was the dramatic, cliff fringed coastline near Dingle in Ireland – the most westerly point in all Europe. Ireland was a brilliant place to hike through, as were Wales and England, with local pubs (the odd Guinness may have been supped!) almost always happy for me to camp in their gardens. During the UK stretch many family and friends also very kindly put me up.
