Land’s End To John O’ Groats – well virtually!

At the end of July I completed a virtual Land’s End to John O’ Groats walk/jog with an online company called End To End. I mostly walked the 874 miles locally but some of my walks were further afield, Lanzerote, Italy, as well as Northumberland, The Lake District and Derbyshire to name a few places.

Each day I logged in the miles walked (a few jogged), when you reach a milestone they send you a virtual postcard, and at some stages a tree is planted, or a meal given to someone. Now I have completed the challenge I’m waiting for my T shirt and medal to arrive.

I have really become addicted to walking daily, the most I walked in a day was 15 miles. There were a few days ( e.g. when I had covid) that I didn’t walk at all.

I’ve seen some amazing sights on my journey, I clocked up a lot of miles sightseeing in Rome, Sorrento, Capri, and the Amalfi coast. As well as cliff top walks in Lanzerote. At home I have watched the seasons changing, I’ve seen lots of beautiful countryside, ancient monuments, and lots of flora and fauna along the way, especially hares, I have seen lots of hares, I started believing they were on my journey as well. I have felt humbled and made to feel in awe of nature and the ever changing seasons seasons.

I’m having a couple of days rest and then I will be setting off to walk in the other direction. Here’s a few photos.
