In 2014, a self-proclaimed ‘relatively normal fifty-year-old, overweight desk-jockey’, took on the monumental task of attempting a 5,000-mile walk around the coast of mainland Britain in the name of two worthy charities.
Developed and adapted from his award-winning blog, this is a journal documenting the highs and lows of his forty-two-week hike around Britain with only the support of his friends, family, the odd stranger or two and a trusty second-hand motorhome as a roving base camp.
Peter Hill, the man behind the whimsical idea, never viewed the trek as a voyage of personal discovery and instead takes the reader on a truthful blisters-and-all journey with friendly enthusiasm, gentle humour, numerous trials, a few grumbles, the odd rant and many, many ice-creams.
With added extracts from a driver’s diary and fully illustrated with a selection of spectacular photographs, this book is only readable with a smile.
