Alone on the South Downs Way - Kindle
In 2015, the author decided to embark on a 100-mile journey walking along one of England's National Trails. An avid walker, she thought she was up for the challenge of an eight-day hike, and happily set off to explore the South Downs. What followed was a beautiful journey through Nature that was both more satisfying and more difficult than she ever imagined.
Undaunted, and after walking various other long-distance trails in the following years, she returned to the South Downs in 2019 for a second go. She was able to avoid all the mistakes she had made on her first journey, and the two experiences were like night and day.
This book contains all the blisters, sweat, and tears from the first life-changing journey—and all the joy, presence, and magic of the second one.
More than just a walking travelogue or memoirs of a walking holiday, this book contains the author's reflections on walking the South Downs Way, including lessons learned and practical information to help you plan your hiking adventure. It includes a suggested packing list, gear recommendations, and other useful tips, such as when to walk the trail, where to stay, and how much you'll need to budget.
This book will not only get you inspired to walk the South Downs Way or another long-distance trail, but it will also encourage you to reconnect with yourself through the magic of Nature.
