Brave Enough

When I read Cheryl Strayed's  book " Wild " (now also a film with Reese Witherspoon), I was very much inspired by her story of walking the Pacific Crest Trail , up the west coast of the USA. The sheer scale of the endeavour, with most of her time spent on her own just walking with one foot in front of the other, was mind blowing.

Fast forward a couple of years, following an amazing trip to Australia and New Zealand (which looked like this):  Then illness, an operation, injury and a bit of exercise apathy.
