A Little Faith

By the time I got away from the Crown on Sunday it was gone midday. It was a gloriously hot sunny day in Somerset, the ride down to my parents gave me time to reflect on everything thats happened recently at the Crown. I will miss several people in Frome but I do not regret making my decision to leave. Staying with parents, who are not happy about the amount of clutter I have, who can blame them?! I have filled half their house with half my belongings, the other half are still in the studio I’ve let out. Today I began to lay out everything for my pilgrimage, hmmm, I may need to review it all. Tomorrow I have to ride down to Ringwood to check out some walking boots! I always leave things to the last minute…. I keep thinking this time next week I’ll be in ‘le Puy en Velay, France’ getting ready to set off. Am I nervous very, but I have become a twitter fiend, and in doing so I have some very special people following me. Between the support from family, friends & strangers, and the little faith I have, I know I can succeed.

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...
