Day 17 - Building Momentum

I always find it more of a challenge to get started after a rest day. However, once that initial hurdle has been cleared the daily rhythm of walking becomes right on song - the power of momentum is magical.

Day 12 - U Smile, I Smile

It's funny how each village will vary with the way I am welcomed. This small village was buzzing with laughter and quite rightly looks of astonishment as to what the hell was I doing walking through their town!

Day 3 - Life is a Highway

Still finding that rhythm and balance of pace and stopping. Really gives meaning to not thinking of the end destination - have to enjoy every moment as never know what awesome opportunities might open up - whether it be people or sights to see. When that frantic mind is feeling rushed - take a moment to acknowledge it, before taking a step back to find your inner peace and soak up your surroundings.
