From reading the title, you might think I'm about to say that you won't hear from me on the blog for a while, since I'll be hiking in the Pyrenees. I only wish!
Actually doing this had never occurred to me before, but I recently heard of someone who hiked from one end to the other - the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. Almost the minute I heard about it I was hooked on the idea. Now the more I hear about it, the more I want to go. I can't even begin to describe how cool it sounds from what I've been reading, but this is a really good article on it.
It's not like I'm an avid hiker, but I could definitely work up to this. I don't really have 2 months to spare either, so I'm thinking I'll start small and just do a week-long hike then spend a few more days there just vacationing.
It'll take me a while to save up the money and to get in shape, so I'm thinking not this summer but the next. I'll be celebrating a significant birthday that year, so it's perfect.
I'm a little fickle in my obsessions, so maybe I'll come to my senses by then, but at least for now, it's motivating me to do more walking and is awfully fun to think about.
If you've ever done anything like this - I'd love to hear about it!
