We always plan to lie in on a rest day but no, everyone is up early, so we went to breakfast. Why do Americans always serve a random bit of fruit with their breakfast? I also tried biscuits and gravy – wrong on so many levels. 

Time for chores – I had loads of food left over from my last resupply where I went to the supermarket and just put a load of random stuff in my basket, so this time I sorted my food and made a list so I spent a lot less money this time. This was the worst thing I could find in the supermarket…

There isn’t much to write about today as I spent most of the day updating my blog and phoning my parents. 

Other people came in during the afternoon Kat and Cuban, Cool Breeze, Marathon John, JBird, a few others. 

We went to a Mexican restaurant for Cinco de Mayo and had margaritas. 


Then we went to bed. Tomorrow we get back on the trail after a nice rest. 

I have received so many lovely messages from my friends, my family and lots of strangers through my blog, Instagram, Facebook, text and email. I absolutely love getting messages from people. I don’t always get the chance to reply, but I read all of your messages when I get service and they are often just the boost I need. Keeping the blog updated is a big mental challenge as I write about my day every night in my tent and sometimes I am ready to just go to sleep! So the encouragement is very welcome. 
Thank you to the kind stranger who donated to Cancer Research, thank you Aly.

Adventure with purpose.

785 million people globally don't have access to clean water. That's 1 in 10 people. In 2020 this is not ok.

I fundraise for Just a Drop in the hope that if I walk thousands of miles for clean water then the people who need to won’t have to. Find out more
