A slow ramble through the French countryside perhaps, or maybe an indulgent luxury walk in Tasmania? Gillian Souter helps travelers plan and prepare to make those dreams a reality. An experienced long distance traveler shares the pleasures of exploring the world at a walking pace, without having to give up a good night's sleep. While focusing on a comfortable approach to walking—on-path rather than off-track, staying in simple accommodation rather than camping, enjoying a glass of wine with dinner instead of purifying drinking water—this guide is generous in its whimsical considerations and observations of the joys of taking a long walk. It also offers practical information on the hurdles all walkers face, including preparing an itinerary, choosing supplies, preventing blisters, and mastering the intricacies of navigation. With this book in hand, readers can put on walking boots, hoist their pack, and head off down that winding track to discover the pleasures of traveling by foot.
