September has arrived and as I walked by the canal today, there were little hints of Autumn here and there. A smattering of gold and brown amongst the leaves. Black, red and orange berries. A fresh breeze stirring the waters.
As I walked, I thought about all the hundreds of times I had walked up and down the towpath; all the things I’d seen; the moods and emotions I’d felt at different times while walking; the people I’d met; the conversations I’d had, the frost, ice, mist, rain, sunrises and sunsets. I said goodbye to it all, at least for the time being.
After a long season of preparation, I am about to head off into an African Spring (which will be far hotter than the hottest of English summers). No more long-distance walking, at least for a couple of years.
I had wondered about drawing this blog to a close, but I’ve decided to continue for a while longer: even a short walk in Mozambique might make for an interesting story or two!
So, goodbye for now – but I’ll write again, soon.

Beautiful photos. Good luck with the move xxx >
Thanks Julia! 2 days to go…and still lots to do. I probably shouldn’t be spending time writing blog posts but I need a break from all the packing and organising 🙂
Please do not stop writing. Remember everywhere else is exotic to someone who does not know it. I look forward to seeing new places and learning from your experiences. Happy days.
Thank you! I am now in Africa – I arrived 2 days ago and am settling in. I will most definitely continue the blog once I have had time to take stock. Today was our first day with wifi on all devices (very exciting)! Thank you for your encouragement across continents!
I’m now not sure the place you are getting your information, however good topic. I needs to spend some time studying much more or figuring out more. Thanks for excellent information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.
Wow, fantastic weblog format! How lengthy have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The total look of your site is wonderful, let alone the content!
