Before I start doing the blog posts about my GR20 walk , I thought I would let you know how it all came about.
I have been an active member of the Ramblers Forums for a few years ( though not so active now ).
A small group of us had got together over the years and tried to meet up every few months or so for a walk.
Around October time 2006 we were planning a walk at Castle Acre, we always posted these walks on the forum to see if we could get any new walkers coming along.
At about the same time I had posted on the forum about wanting a walking holiday in 2007…… if you read through the thread you will see Geoff suggested the GR20, at this time I thought he was joking and didn’t really take much notice.
As the months went by and it was mentioned many times I slowly began to think maybe just maybe he really did think I could do this walk.
Then we went off to the peak district for some walking , where I got my real bad blister.
After this I changed my boots and got a ruc-sac , now I really began to think I was going.
We did some more training in Wales then 2 trips to Les Gets in the french Alps. Before I knew it I was in Corsica walking the GR20 having the time of my life ,thanks to a chance meeting with someone who has changed my life and given me opportunities I never ever expected to get.
I still wake up every day and pinch myself to make sure its real and not just a dream 🙂 🙂
