Expedition Map

A journey on foot me, a fifty year old woman suffering from chronic osteoarthritis of the hip and the vestiges of  breaking  my back 15 years ago whilst climbing. I started by stepping out of the back door of my tiny house in rural Shropshire, and finished in Knoydart, after: Walking 660 miles, sleeping rough, eating homemade pemmican and sauerkraut, foraging for leaves, roots and seaweed, suffering ‘dysentery’, dehydration and macerated feet. I was a stone  and a half lighter and an inch and a half shorter!
