Walking Overseas

Walking Overseas offers something a wonderful contrast to walking in the UK. Not only is the culture and landscape very different but the ‘set up’, information and people take some working out.

I have invited a number of guest writers to complement my experiences of walking overseas. Between us we have covered a lot of the more popular walks and walking destinations.

Hopefully the photography and written information will offer some background and inspiration for a walking holiday overseas.
