“Flies and mosquitoes circled our bodies. But, instead of irritating us, they kept their distance, seemingly content with catching the light of the sun before dispersing it explosively, like tiny supernovas, through the chitin of their wings”
A Walk to the Water ~ Daniel Graham
This book is a wonderful example of doing what you love best, and fulfilling its potential. Daniel and his twin brother Jake like to take walks. They love nature, landscapes and above all, they love a good adventure. It was inevitable therefore, however unexpected, that they decide to go on a rather long walk – right from their front door in Bristol to the French Riviera. That’s right, all on foot.
A Walk to the Water, is indeed an excellent geographical account, but where its biggest success lies is in the strong human connection. The brothers travel on foot through Belgium, Luxembourg and of course across England and other European breathtakingly beautiful landscapes to reach the Mediterranean Sea.
For those who love to travel, this book is a must-read for a lesson in how it should be done and how it can be done right.
