north route spring 2013
I live with my teenage daughter in a small town on an estuary in South West Scotland, where I often walk through the harbour with my dog. My daughter will leave school in three years time, when I will be 62. I have been pondering what I will do when she flies the nest to go to university in the big city, and two days ago I stumbled on an article about a man who walked around the world. Since then I have been on the internet virtually around the clock researching people who have done this. I have walked the camino 5 times and keep going back, but what about a longer walk? This morning I bought a coffee at the local farmers market and sat on a bollard in the harbour to drink it in the sun, and noticed this arrow for the first time. A local band were playing in the park, the title of the song was “Rocking all over the world”. Am I being told something?120.jpg

There are several books out there of peole's accounts of trying to walk around the world. One still on my shelf is Steven M. Newman's 1989 'Worldwalk: one man's four year journey around the world'.

I read them back in the 90s so memory fades, but I think none of the walkers, despite incredible experiences, were completely successful. War and visa requirements got in the way.

The arrow is pointing towards boat's so maybe sail around it and listen out for Rod next time but I've also been contemplating something similar and expect could take around 11 years to complete successfully and alot of Coffee and another Celt I've been following is on his way 🤠http://www.myworldwalk.com/

As said in the film The Way: "Sometimes a dog fight near a cheese farm is just a dog fight near a cheese farm."

It's been done, true, but that's a big chunk out of your life all at once! What about by continent, or hemisphere?

A few years ago I was following Rosie Swale Pope's run around the world. She's a Welsh woman who took 5 years to run around the world. She has written a book about it. She was 57 when she started the trip. It would probably make a good read and she will talk about being hit by a bus, getting frostbite, and all the joys of travelling every day. Some people do succeed and it is probably easier now than 20 or 30 years ago. Dream big.

The arrow means whatever you need/want it to mean. A year or so ago, when I was unable to go on camino last year, I saw a similar yellow arrow near my home, along the Bow River. There was some construction going on and I thought, "a yellow arrow is being used here to indicate some aspect of the construction"; yellow is a bright colour and the arrow a pointer. It reminded me of the camino, but in that comfortable way of a reminder of something that I like to do and shall do again in the foreseeable future. Obviously, at this point in your life, it has a much larger meaning for you.
