Heavy pack, blistered feet, money problems, relationship problems, mood swings - Paula writes about her determination to walk from London to Africa detailing all her highs and lows on the way. I'm looking forward to the next installment but glad it isn't me doing the miles - I wouldn't have the perseverance. ( )

Imagine walking 5000 kms from London to Morocco!! Paula describes herself as an overweight, unfit dreamer who drinks too much but despite plenty of obstacles (major one being no money) she sets out with her husband to fulfil a cherished dream. This one is for all of us who doubted ever being able to achieve our dreams in the face of opposition both internal and external. An inspirational read.
