Wow, thanks for this wonderful blog. I write a much crappier travel blog, so it's nice to see how it's supposed to be done. I have only scratched the surface of your travels, but you have inspired me to keep on trekking! I am planning a trip to Turkey to do the Lycian Way, and your website has been wonderful. I spent 3 months in New Zealand, so am jealously looking at all the pictures of places you made it to that we couldn't. There is so much world to see. Awesome.

Thanks for sharing your trek with the rest of us. I'm in Da Lat for my 4th time staying 2 weeks. Your pictures are awesome, your tale is well-written, and your trek was fantastic.

Apologies if you stated this and I missed it, but when did you set out from Le Puy? I am thinking of walking from Le Puy to SJPP next spring, but would like to go at a time that might offer a balance between too much rain/sleet and too many other walkers. Thanks.

We set out from Le Puy on May 20, probably a bit earlier than the average Camino walker.

buen camino

Great pics David, as Kris said, took me straight back there. Especially liked the reflections (if I didn't know you to be such an honest man I'd have thought you cheated with photoshop - amazing) and the panorama from the top of windy ridge: my camera lens cover jammed half open I discovered when I returned from that apparently perilous point, probably as I was in a bit of a hurry as my companion not too keen on the spot. Sadly, I'm a Brit, not Canadian, yet, tho' am working on it. Thanks for making the effort to get Sandy to contact me so we could see these. Happy travels!

David, Nell: thanks for the chance to "travel" again with you. We so enjoyed meeting you while also in the amazing Assiniboine area. Your photographs are absolutely stunning. A memorable week when our paths crossed.

What a wonderfull description of your Camino de Santiago with so many nice photos. I included a link to your site on my own pilgrim-site: www.101pelgrims.nl where pilgrims can put their own stories and read the stories of other pilgrims

I have guided groups on the West Coast Trail for over 20 years. David, this is absolutely the best travelogue and photo journal that I have seen on this hike. I look forward to following your future adventures.

Thank you for taking the time to document your treks. Your photographs and writings are without doubt one of the most inspiring works I've ever read. I truly hope your works remain accessible for the generations to come.

Thanks for the Le Puy to Conques entries. My mum and I walked Le Puy to Moissac this past April and I am visiting her right now so we are remembering our trip and your pictures were great to see. Nice to see the sun in your photos as it rained for us almost every day, with a lot of snow over the Aubrac. Bon Chemin!

Hello,

I am studying a Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation with Outward Bound Australia and am currently researching an assignment. I am required to plan, prepare and conduct a two day bush walk and would love to do so in / around Ulladulla, if possible... ? I wanted to enquire if anyone could please provide some advice on a suitable (maximum two day duration) walking trail / track that you may be familiar with or especially fond of?

Thank-you for your time and consideration. Kind regards, Kate

smile Really helpful site but getting a little out of date. You need to come back and do the Hollyford Track with backload and the Wilkin / Gillespie / Young circuit.


nomad Sunday, 4 November 2012 18:06
You are right - we should come back to NZ. It is on the to do list. While it has been seven years since we did all those walks and there will certainly have been some changes to tracks etc, they are not written as guides but rather descriptions of what we did and what the track was like. I would like to think that they will never go out of date (particularly the photos) and one day might even be a useful historical record.

Easy reading but information is now way out of date. The tracks linking Stanwell Park to Austinmer (ie Forest Walk, Forest Walk to Sublime Point, and Sublime Point track) are now completed. Walkers can get off the South Coast train at Stanwell Park or Coalcliff and walk uninterrupted to Sublime Point, before descending to Austinmer train station. A full loop walk , 13km in total.

Thanks for your comments Jim,
The page was never meant to be a guide - just a description of what we did. However, it is worth adding a note to say that there is now a proper track so that readers are aware of this. I'll do this in the next day or two.

Thanks you for sharing your awesome journeys! I just got back from Camino Santiago de Compostela and walked the 500 miles from St. Jean Pied-de-Port to Santiago. Now I'm a camino junkie (!) and i'm excited to to my next walk-trek. I'll be in India sometime in January and February and I'm thinking of doing some trekking from India to Nepal. Would the months of January and February be good climate wise and which group/company would you suggest could assist me the best in planning for this trek? Thanks once again.

Great text on Hanoi traffic! Living in Beijing and planning two days in Hanoi, we are used to some crazy traffic, but are looking forward to a larger experience!!

Just come across your Site. We're both 60+ retirees and about to go off and do the Singalilla Ridge trip. Your photos and comments made us look forward to it even more.We've already been round Annapurna circuit so know what the food and conditions will be like. The views look fabulous.
Keep it up.

I've just found your website & am enjoying reading your diaries immensely. Your style of writing & photography are terrific. Thank you so much for sharing it all. My husband & I had our first trip to Switzerland last year & discovered the wonderful hikes. It has really whet our appetite & we're hoping to get to the Amalfi Coast next year & explore the "Walk of the Gods". Did you design your own website & what did you use? I blog by using blogspot but it definitely has it's limitations!

Please put me in touch with the author of the article on the Camino from Le Puy to Conques as I am doing it to the Pyrenees next May and wish to ask some questions. Many thanks


nomad Wednesday, 8 August 2012 23:28
The website is a one-man show, so I am happy to answer any questions you might have about the camino ...

Hello!

Thanks for sharing the Milford Track experience. I am planning to do it solo in Feb/March 2012 and the article give me the necessary confidence that I can do it.

Thanks also for the beautiful pictures.
