We all know these two things, time and money, are the biggest constrictions in modern society… If we didn’t have to worry about either, we would all achieve our dreams!
I have less than a month now before I begin my walk and to date I have raised £2417.13 for UNICEF. I would have liked to approach more business sponsors before my departure but running a busy bar and hotel takes it’s toll whether we’re coming to a close or not!
I still need to acquire some kit, and write my final press release before departure…
The way of St. James is one of the three largest Christian pilgrimages of the world. I intend to walk one of the many routes which begins in le Puy en Velay, France. The route has been trodden by many weary souls, looking for answers, looking for adventure, for the obvious religious reasons, or just walked for the sake of it.
I first came across the route about 6 years ago whilst reading Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Pilgrimage’, I decided maybe something could be learnt from spending so much time on the road in solitude.
Being the kind of person that lives to work, these ideas were put on hold whilst my life moved steadily forward. Recently I’ve found myself longing for adventure and decided it was time to begin planning. Another thing I decided was if I was going to do this, I may as well try and raise money for charity along the way.
So the story begins...
