Having spent several years travelling around the world, living in far reaching destinations and sampling differing cultures and lifestyles, I am now planning my next major travel adventure.
Starting on June 25th 2011 my wife and I will walk from Land's End at the south-western tip of England to John O'Groats, located at the north-eastern tip of Scotland. This is a 1200 mile walk and will take approximately three months to complete. This walk will be for charity and we will be raising money for the charity Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) (http://www.aicr.org.uk
). This charity donates money to cancer research globally.
I had originally planned to travel around the world without flying. After making it as far as Singapore from England overland, I decided the £100-150 per person per day to continue onwards via cargo ship was money better spent on other endeavours. With recent deaths in our family from cancer we thought a sponsored walk to raise money for such a good cause would be more rewarding.
I will be keeping a diary of this walk on TravelBlog, although there might be a time delay due to limited internet access. If you want to follow our adventure, please subscribe to my blog or recommend it. Similarly you can follow my wife and I on Twitter (@Aand C_walk_GB).

After starting a new job, moving to London and living without Internet for a month (why it takes a month to get internet connection in one of the world's most developed countries I'll never know!), I've fallen behind with my blog writing. Hopefully that will change in the next few weeks.
