I NEED YOU!

So, after about a month of catching up and having a lovely time I am about to head back to work. Quite honestly I am am very happy to be heading back to Intensive Care. Why wouldn't I be? I like the place a lot, enjoy my job and work with lovely people . I have been...

Not walk related but Im annoyed!

Since I got home Ive heard a lot about lack of opportunity and not having a voice as the reasons for violence, looting and destruction. In the name of clarification this is the face of lack of opportunity, voice and options: and this is an opportunist thug who had the...

Barcelona

So, here we are, the last blog for a while. I'm sorry it's late in the day - technically a new day but hey. I spent 2 hours with Susana and Anna at the MSF fundraising section this am. I could not have spent time with more lovely people. Thank you to both for your...

Argentona to BARCELONA

So, this is it. I set off from Argentona early and had a great walk in to Barca. Lots of lovely people beeped horns, waved and spoke to me. I met a great guy called Pep in Badelona. Pep has walked some fantastic places like Turkey and Iran and he was really interested...

Sant Celoni to Argentona

Dear me, I'm falling apart here! I really don't know how I feel about all this anymore. I'm dreading the end of the walk but also can't wait to finish. I am struggling to fully appreciate that tomorrow I will walk the last 25km and that's it. I'll miss it. The...

Riudarenes to Sant Celoni

This ominous sky greeted me this morning and stuck with me all day. It finally chucked down as I arrived in Sant Celoni. I hid in a doorway. This turned into a very funny experience for me. The guy who owns the doorway - and likely the rest of the house joined me. He...

Girona to Riudarenes

Hmmm room 101 eh. We will see, it's very nice so far. Not a great deal to report today. I followed a good walking road to Riudarenes. I did 3/4 of it squinting as I lost my sunglasses. This is a very small place but the hotel is perfectly placed on the crossroad I...

Girona

So, a nice relaxing day in Girona. It's raining now which is as good a reason as any to sit in la Terra bar and drink the locally brewed Moska beer. The fact that they also do a slick line in vegan burgers is also a plus. That the waitress is extremely nice and very...

Medinya to Girona

My kit was still damp this morning when I came to pack. In a way I'm glad none of the equipment makers supported the walk as I have little good to say about the water proof properties of my boots or jacket. It may have been extreme but they should have coped. I shall...

Figueres to Medinya

I left Figueres this morning to an ominously grey sky. It held out till 1500 and then cats and dogs did fall. I haven't seen rain like it for a long time. I planned to camp tonight but no way was this going to be possible so I just pressed on. I had re- planned the...

La Jonquera to Figueres

The highlight of the day. The Salvador Dali museum in Figueres is amazing. I was there 2 hours. I love the nut jobs work. Humiliation of the day - my water pouch leaking in a roadside cafe. 2 litres goes a long way. I think they liked me though as I insisted on...

Laroque des Alberes to SPAIN – la Jonquera

Fifth and final border crossing on this journey. I entered Spain at 1245 today and am now in La Jonquera. It is a typical border town - better than many I've seen actually. It exists as a Mecca for people taking advantage of tax breaks to buy cheap booze mainly. It's...
