Let go of your limitations, of what has become comfortable, of what you thought you were, of who you thought you could be. Milana May

Two week’s into the trip, we received a text from Abigail, our 15-year-old granddaughter:

You can’t give up now, you’ve reached your halfway mark. Please don’t give up, you can do this. Just because the temptation is pulling you away, doesn’t mean you have to give up!

This was in response to my earlier text which mentioned that we were thinking of heading back home as we were finding the going too tough. I have to admit that Abigail’s text had a profound affect on me personally, and it was at this point that we both decided we should carry on. I also knew that, if we did, there was no turning back until we had reached Santiago. John was happy to go with my final decision.

Now start the journey with us as we set out from our house to travel from Oxford to Bayonne in France
