Taking our time and open to the unexpected: that’s how we like to travel. Amblers and slackpackers, we prefer travelling on foot, in remote places, through mountains, up rivers or along the coast. Slow travel is low carbon too, in these days of climate emergency.

I’m over seventy now, but still hiking on – my recipe for a joyful old age.

We’ve hiked the length of Greece, across Crete and Corfu, through the Pyrenees, and along the South West Coast Path in England.

It’s the people I rmember most – the barbecue with Albanian loggers, the shepherd who saved us from the storm. Wildlife too: the song of the seals, and the wildflowers in the glory days of spring.
