Highs

  • One of the best things about this walk is the people I meet along the way. For example, whilst near the National Trust South Foreland Lighthouse near Dover (on top of the White Cliffs) I asked a couple of women whether I was on the right path. We got chatting and the next minute I’m sharing tea and cake with them in the cafe (thanks to Rose and Anne 😊).
  • The chalk trails and stunning views on the White Cliffs of Dover. After the flat promenades I’d been walking on it made a lovely change to hike on the undulating terrain more suited to my trail running shoes

Lows

  • Leaving Eric and Thelma’s. After the support they gave me, with B&B, route planning, and company whist walking, I felt a little vulnerable on my own in contrast.
