Waking up to cars, trucks and buses passing metres from my tent, I packed up and got on the road the earliest of the whole journey this I morning, by around 7.15 am. It took some time for my muscles to warm up, but I stopped again in a cafe to charge devices as I would...

Sometimes we have good days, and sometimes they’re not so good. Today wasn’t really all that bad, but more than a few things happened that certainly curtailed the incredibly high spirits I had been maintaining.

Things looked good this morning, waking up on the beach to...

Whilst hitchhiking between Vancouver and Banff, AB, Canada, I was lucky enough to be picked up early one morning by a man named Jim. I had been camping at a small secluded spot near a town in British Columbia.

Jim was nice enough to be able to take me to the neares...

Only 20 km today, but I made it to the 12 Apostles Visitors Centre which was the planned meeting point for my fellow hikers joining me on the Great Ocean Walk tomorrow. Waking up was slow, steady and delightful. The km did not flow this morning, but that was ok. I made...
