That's great, thanks for adding my blog to your list and for subscribing! I hope it will make an interesting read, I'll try my best
I also think it might help me to keep on track on days when I'm asking myself "Why am I doing this?" So that's just one of the reasons why I decided to set it up. And, of course, because in the end it will be a nice possibility to return to the walk any time to "relive" it.
And thanks for your good wishes, you never can enough of them for a project of this size
You are so right. I found that the drive to write about every day as it happened was a real help in getting me through the tougher parts - I wanted to finish the LEJOG story, and with a positive ending, and that meant getting on with it. And now that I have my account, I love looking back through it, particularly as it's now far enough away that I've started to forget what I did.
The same applies to all my travel writing - I don't even recognise the twenty-something who set out in 1995.
I hope you enjoy looking back through your blog as much as I enjoy looking back through mine!
I came across the name of this wreck in a couple of LEJOG (and other) records and just saw that you mentioned it as well. For me that's particularly interesting because the ship is/was named after my home city! I wasn't completely sure about that when I first read the name, as there are a couple of cities/towns with that name, but some research and a look at a sister vessels name confirms that it must be my "Mülheim"
That'll make a nice link on the first walking day!
