Welcome to “100 years walking”: a blog mainly about walking, with some other stuff thrown in.
It began as a record of the everyday adventures I had with my friend Caralyn, as we trained for various marathons and ultramarathons.
It also became a way of adjusting to the English countryside after several years of living in Africa. For some time after returning, I had found it difficult to see beauty in England; so as I walked, I began to look more intentionally at my surroundings and tried to capture what I saw in words and pictures.
In this way, I learned to see beauty in my little patch of England. Even so, the connection with Africa would not go away.
In September 2017, I moved back to Mozambique with my husband, to work as volunteers in the children’s centre where we lived before. A few African themed blog posts followed, but it was hard to find time to think, let alone write!
Now I’m back in England, walking mainly for pleasure but with the next walking challenge planned for July 2020 – a double marathon: Race to the Tower”.
