Last night was spent playing harp (harmonica) with The Journeymen in the Club Faroense in Faro. Late, joyful and fun. Then went to sleep in the back of a van on top of the amplifiers and woke up in Spain in the early hours. And here I am in the sun on the Guadiana River, on my way to Germany - honestly - to start the wintery walk from Munich to Paris. Flight on Wednesday morning, first steps of the 500 miles around midnight the same day.
Slow adventures in the worlds of horse travel and global horse lore, guitars and harps, long walks with minimal kit, inspiring books and websites, second-hand-cycle trips, pilgrimages, poetry, birds, sailing and sea-kayaking, quotes, simplicity, hats, Ireland, Patagonia, North Africa and further afield, good-bad country songs, maps, fish, hammock camping, hand-crafts and hand-tools, foraging, fires, pencil sketches and dancing. Often posts on subjects that are none of the above.

- I'm an independent writer on wilderness activities, slow adventures, traditional horsemanship and odd stuff. I'm the author of Paddle; A long way around Ireland (Sort Of Books), and i was the story consultant on the IMAX documentary on cowboy cultures across the globe, Ride Around The Word. The Slow Adventure sends reports back from the front-line of a slow and simple life; horses, kayaks, guitars, long walks, travel, books, simplicity, trains, travel, wildlife and the occasional thrill.
