At Journey’s end – My 10 Journeys in the series 2016-17

Having set out to embrace 10 experiences, 10 challenges, 1o creations and 10 journeys in this 40th birthday year/extravaganza, it is my series of journeys that I have completed first. From the beginnings on a Norfolk beach barefooted in the sunshine to ending on some glorious Cornish beaches, again soaked in the sun, it’s been a great series of adventures. I have absolutely loved travelling a lot more by train and all the freedom’s that bring in terms of scenery, new perspectives, reading and listening to music. Visiting Yorkminster and the beauty of world heritage site Saltaire was a real highlight along with the beauty of Steep and the poetry retreat, but to be honest, although all these journeys have remained in England and not ventured beyond let alone overseas, each one of them has been precious, memorable and a great thing to encounter and experience.
