Taking a Hike

I'm off again,I knew I would be walking again at some point just not sure where,It was important to me to take on a new challenge in this year of my 65th birthday so when the opportunity came up to spend a free week at an Eco farm in the beautiful Abruzzi National park just south of Rome I could not resist.
  having never been to Italy apart from a day trip from Austria in my youth it seemed a good idea to do some walking while I was there,from that point it just snowballed into thinking why not walk to Spain and Santiago as well,its a walk of over one thousand 500 miles give or take,not sure if I will make it all on foot,but as someone once said you can walk any distance as long as you have the time and that I have,so flight booked for this Sunday 29th July no flight booked home but thinking at least 3 months,so lets see,all I know is this new challenge has got me excited and frightened at the same time,because of the distance and expense I will be taking a lightweight tent and will be doing some wild-camping which sounds romantic but the reality may be another matter.
  we will see, so game on wish me luck.


  1. Gosh! I'm sure you said you had stopped doing the Camino! All the very best with this endeavour. I look forward to reading how it goes.

  2. Stop messing about and get some s****g phot's on here.

  5. What is the lightweight tent you are carrying, in fact what weight do you carry as we are starting our journey in Romr but not walking all the way but have a one way ticket at this stage thanks.

  6. hope I,m not too late in answering your question sienna moon,the tent was more a fishermans bive only used it for two nights,accommodation is cheap and sometimes feel free to contact me at list of cheap places my pack was less than 10k started out with 7k (water ect making up the diff)
