Day 16 – The Last Day

Spanish hotels seem to be great for late check-out times, this one in Murcia let us stay until midday. We took full advantage of this with a lie-in, a leisurely breakfast, showers and getting all the online stuff done we needed to (checking in for flight, uploading photos to our instagram etc.) whilst we had… Continue reading Day 16 – The Last Day

Day 15

We had a late start today after a difficult night of sleep. I left Ondra sleeping in our cave and went for a wander around on the rocks, finding a few other smaller caves to nose around in. It’s a shame we have to leave so soon (our flight leaves Murcia, 190km away, tomorrow evening)… Continue reading Day 15

Day 11

Waking up on a deserted beach = Bliss. I had a morning swim and wash in the sea whilst O started the fire, then we swapped and I boiled some water for tea whilst O washed and swam. For breakfast we had our last two kiwis and dipped into our emergency peanuts and dark chocolate… Continue reading Day 11

Day 8

I’ve been fighting some kind of illness (probably just the inevitable body adjusting to all the different germs after being isolated in the woods with the same people for a year) for a lot of this journey, which has made me extra sleepy (and I’m already pretty sleepy!). The mornings and evenings in particular, I… Continue reading Day 8

Day 6

Day 2

We woke up at 6:30 to a beautiful sunshiney morning. There had been a bit of rain and some patches of wind in the night, but our tarps had kept us well protected. It hadn’t been the most comfortable sleep of my life on the hard ground, but the cardboard cushioning had definitely helped and… Continue reading Day 2

Day 1

One of the many wonderful things about hitchhiking somewhere is that it doesn’t matter if your plans change or you end up running late. This works well for me as after a year of living in the woods, my time keeping is particularly dubious! Last night, I had a Hello/Goodbye getogether on Brighton beach that… Continue reading Day 1

Day 0

Ondra and I were feeling overwhelmed. We had both spent the last year in different alternate universes of some sort, and the shock of modern British life – the emphasis on earning and spending money, the disconnection from nature and each other, the constant onslaught of information, the depressing state of politics… etc. – was… Continue reading Day 0
