Welcome and a ma-hoousive thank you for landing yourself here. Take a hug and a high-five at the door on your way in. They’re free after all.

If this is your first time around, you should probably go and grab yourself a biscuit, just to be on the safe side. And a cup of tea while you’re at it. From there on in it’s a three way street. You can:

  1. Read a little bit about me.
  2. Get armpit deep in adventurin’ from the off – read aboutΒ a recent 1,911 mile trail run through New Zealand
  3. Be on your merry way. But know that I’m grateful you stopped by and hope to see you again soon.

Once you’re all adventured out, feel free to steam right on in there and say hello.Β Β Maybe you can help me. Maybe I can help you. Maybe we’re both just a little bit awesome and need to chat. We won’t know until we do.

  8. Rachel

    Hi Anna, this is Rachel from Leamington primary school. I felt you very inspiring. You gave me the courage to think about walking or running a country. I wish you good luck and hope you have fun for the ready of the walk. I also wanted to ask you, what do you do mostly in London, and how many brothers and sisters do you have. Your sincerely Rachel.πŸ˜€πŸ’₯

    1. Hi Rachel, Oh I’m so glad you were inspired and are starting to think about the adventures you might go on one day. It’s a big world out there and there’s so much to explore and see! I have two Brothers called Jamie and Jonty. One is older than me and the other is younger – they live in London too. When I’m at home in London I have a job as a Marketing Manager – that means I help people sell things, like mobile phones and TV’s. A job like that eans that I can work hard, save up money to go on big adventures like the one I’m on now.
      Good luck planning your future adventures – remember to think big! Anything is possible!
      High Five,

    1. Hi Declan,
      Thanks for writing to me – isn’t being outside just the best?!! I hope you’re going to be getting outside lots this weekend – one of the best things about going on a long running journey is that I get to be outside most of the time! Even when it’s raining :/ . But that’s okay :) Good luck in planning your own adventures, and keep doing the things that make you feel happy!
