Walking Away

  I am figuratively and literally walking away from charity walking and The Happy Walk. I have nothing left, no kombi, no money, nothing because I sold everything for them, to keep walking so i could keep raising funds and awareness. I walk away starting from scratch. The fundraiser finished 2 weeks ago and they … Continue reading Walking Away

To Brisbane

Usually i try not to walk on rest days but sometimes there are places of interest which need a relaxed stroll for best experience. The water front from Scarborough to Woody Point via Redcliffe was a welcome walk after the hills and increasing traffic on narrow roads.  The salt air immediately lifted my spirits after … Continue reading To Brisbane

1770 to Hervey Bay

It feels longer since the last update. Time is passing too fast as I walk through some of the most beautiful places in Australia. "Where has been your favourite place?" is one of the questions people often ask. It is impossible to chose only one place. If I consider all the places made special for … Continue reading 1770 to Hervey Bay

I'll let the photos do most of the talking (: Sometimes I um and ah about side trips, especially I have not heard any recommendations. So it was a pleasant surprise when I discovered a local secret, Tannum Sands. The walk/bike track all g Boyne River was equally as beautiful. I met Jan and Karl … Continue reading Week 1

Authorised Fundraiser

Since 2012 I have been a fundraiser for Lifeline. While walking 1,250kms around Tasmania I asked Lifeline if I could help them to say thanks for the help they gave me. There are many excellent fundraising events happening throughout Australia but a few frauds mean we need proof of authority to fundraise. Before beginning the … Continue reading Authorised Fundraiser

Abundantly Supported Solo Unaccompanied

When I started planning this back in 2010 I imagined walking solo with a support vehicle and behind-the-scenes team but it didn't turn out that way.  When I started trying to explain walking around Australia alone without a support vehicle it immediately felt wrong saying "solo unsupported". Even though all other charity walkers, runners and … Continue reading Abundantly Supported Solo Unaccompanied
