Just read your entries on the St. Paul trail in Pisidia in Turkey. We have been to most of those places but mainly by car. We also treasure Yesilada as one of our favorite places. Thank you for inspiring us to do more walking next time we visit this magical place!

Hi, what a magical blog. Thanks for recording your travels in words and pictures. Having walked parts of the Larapinta Trail when it was in the throes of establishment, I really appreciated reading your journal and will return to read the rest.

Hi
Love your site. Such amazing journeys. Several experienced bushwalking friends and myself are keen to do the the northern 2 sections of the Australian Alpine Track which you completed some years back. What time of year did you do this? We were thinking Nov,but is later better? Also is there any concern with creek water in any areas along this route? Many thanks.
Regards
Frank

Thank you, Nomads...I am about to set off for the walk from Bronte to La Perouse and then I plan to walk down to Cronulla via the shores of Botany Bay. Your pics a delightful and helpful. I have completed the walk from Palm Beach to Kirribilli, as well as the walk from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay. The small secluded beaches are a beautiful surprise.
What I have done, back in March of 2013 was the Jesus Trail, from Nazareth to Capernaum - 60 km. It is marked by dobs of paint on stones and power poles.
As 64 year old I am ever thankful that I have the health to do these walks.

Hi just some questions.
I will be walking from Mallacoota to Wonboyn next month did you have to pay any fees for this section? and how did you get across the inlet at Mallacoota?

Regards,
Willem

Off to Turkey once again on Monday to walk some familiar parts of the Lycian Way from previous visits over the last 10 years and to add a little of St Paul's Trail around Lake Egirdir. Wonderful photographs of all the wild flowers we missed by walking in late September! We have also walked the same valleys as you in Cappadocia some years ago.

It was nice to read your blog and to refresh my memory of our bike tour. I told one of our friends of this excellent trip, and they are doing a private tour in 2017 with about 9 people as Thomas is not doing this trip next year. They found your blog and that sold them on booking the trip. I really enjoyed that trip, but it really was a lot of hills. Going back to Japan in October to the Japanese alps to see fall foliage.

We have just stumbled upon your site as we prepare for our Chemin St Jacques - we will walk from Le Puy in France to Roncesvalles in Spain, crossing the Pyrenees. Somewhat daunted by what we have read about steep climbs and descents, we have been excited by the spectacular scenery in the photos you have posted from your walk from Le Puy to Conques. We will begin late May to avoid the main public holidays and now wonder whether it will be warmer than we anticipated - you say you ran out of sunscreen! Your high quality photos which have enthused us as we prepare mentally. We completed the entire Camino de Santiago in Spain in 2013 - 800km so we don't feel as daunted by the actual distance. We may take it a little slower this time and not attempt too many 30km days. Thank you for sharing your diaries.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog! I used it when hiking the W trail, and then again now when researching Cappadocia. (I also have read about many more of your adventures.) I was wondering which of the hikes in Cappadocia you liked the most. I will be based in Goreme, and will hike in some of the valleys there. I also will visit Guzelyurt and hike in the Ilhara Valley. Which other areas were your favorites? Is the section of the Ilhara Valley from Belisme to Selime worth doing? (I will go from Ilhara village to Belisme, but I was told the rest of the valley is not that worthwhile.) I have a total of 5 and a half days in Cappadocia. Thanks in advance for any advice you might have!

Hi!

Just found your rad site - great to see so many walks done over so many years! I might have to follow in your footsteps on some of them :) I have a knee recon booked next week and sites like this are motivating me to make sure I do my rehab properly so I can get back on the trail smile

Can I just say that as I see you are going to Japan soon --- you need to go to Yakushima (the island south of Kyushu) if you are not already going - I didn't see it on your upcoming list. If you don't go, you are robbing yourself of a most beautiful and unique part of Japan. Just do yourself a favour and google it. It's also fairly easy to get there. You can fly ($200-300AUD??) or slum it like I did and catch the overnight ferry from Kagoshima (about $30AUD). TRUST ME it is worth your time at least googling it.

Have just left Mallacoota and my son did the Wonboyn to Mallacoota walk in about 1993. I too am keeping a log of our travels and would like to put a link to your site, if that is okay with you, it is quite delightful. Your photos and description are lovely.

Stumbled upon your blog when researching one of the Camino walks through France and Spain. Excellent reference material.
Thankyou

Absolutely loving your blog! Found it while researching for the Cape to Cape walk. Hoping to do it this year! Great info and loved the photos. Now time to explore more of your travels! Greetings from the west coast (the best coast!!)

Wonderful overview of your enticing experience hiking the Lycian Way in Turkey. We will be following suit later this spring, and your pictures and description have certainly wetted the appetite. Thanks so much for sharing!

Thanks so much for sharing your adventures with others.
My husband and I are going in September to Switzerland followed by Northern Italy then Croatia and Slovenia.
Not being as experienced walkers as you we however love walking and are planning to do as many day walks in these areas as possible. We have found your information on walking in these areas very inspiring.
We would like to stay as close as possible to where we will be starting our walks and so I wanted to ask if you could recommend any of the accomodation that you stayed in in these particular areas?
Thank-you for your thoughts re this, Julie

I too am the grey-, (or at least thin-on-top) nomad type, having made two Caminos de Santiago on a bike; (arthritic knees make humping a back-pack too much of a challenge). Chanced upon your wonderful website, seeking info on the Chemin de Saint Jacques.
One comment. I was saddened by your (understandable) observations on the indulgence business in Santiago. As a Catholic pilgrim, embracing the purely spiritual dimension of the Camino, may I point out that according to our faith, an indulgence is granted automatically to any pilgrim completing the journey who participates in the sacraments and pilgrim mass on arrival. You merely observed the sale of certificates which are quite irrelevant in this matter, (souvenirs really) and I, for one, certainly didn't bother getting one. You are quite right that the majority of pilgrims are simply participating in a life experience, well worth while in itself. Thanks for your very valuable, indeed dare I say inspirational, website.

Just to let you know Herbie was our father who was one of the. First five farmers who went to the Ord in 1963. His name was Herb Dougall and my sister and I went to Herbies Hideout on our school holidays. We explored the area as teenagers. If you are interested we can hopefully answer any questions you have about those early days. Beth Roast and Alison Smith
