Posted in Walking Stories by Mike Hall

Well fellow wanderers, here we go again! But be warned, I have been having a bad time, but despite that, walking is helping, so just bear with me, we all make journeys, some in the mind, some by foot but they all take us to a better place, a better state of mind, a better peace, so just keep me company virtually and walk a while with me.

The Roaming Roman Road - Part One

Posted in Walking Stories by Mike Hall
rr pst

This is going to be a walk of mixed emotions, it’s the longest solo walk I have done to date, which isn’t that bad some may say, but in this instance, I’m trying to condition myself to being on my own.
