have you read any of bill bryson's books about walking places?

No, I'm going to have to check then out. The only Bill Bryson book I've read is A Short History of Nearly Everything, which is a nice balance of informative and hilarious.

he wrote a book about walking the appalachian trail which you would presumably love, another about wandering around england after a long absence, and i just noticed he wrote a book last year about... wandering through england again. so i'll have to check that out.

loved the photos. whenever i plan my trip to ireland i'll consult you, naturally.

I'll definitely have a look so - I've heard wonderful things about the AT and it's something I'd love to do some far-off day.

Actually I met a girl on the Beara Way who had done the AT, the PCT and the CDT (she worked in some IT-related field part of the year, and spent the rest walking). I felt like bowing down.
