Wild walks in Greece on hold

My diary for Sunday 2 June reads “16.35  Aegean Airways flight A3603, arrive Athens 22.10”.  But I won’t be on it.

This was to be the start of a 2 month trip around mountains, gorges and waterfalls in the Peloponnese.  Travelling by bus, route roughly planned with plenty of flexibility built in to explore the unexpected, a combination of new places and the best of those already visited.  No flight home booked as I didn’t know where or when I would end up.

Circumstances change and so plans have to be adjusted.  There is complete uncertainty as to when, or even whether, I’ll get back to Greece this summer so my wild walks are likely to be in Wales with maybe a trip to revisit old haunts in the Lake District if the weather is good.  Maybe head for Langdale and Borrowdale.

When I began the blog, just before my first summer in Greece in 2010, I quoted the Book of Proverbs in the Bible.  Always true but perhaps particularly apt right now: Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails”. (Proverbs chapter 19 verse 21).  So, to resort to clichés, I’ll play it by ear, suck it and see, see how things pan out.

As far as the blog is concerned, maybe I’ll revisit some of my previous trips to Greece and write up some of the memorable incidents and encounters.

  1. Sorry to hear that Barry, makes me even sadder you were away when I walked round your corner – I thought you’d be away for the summer but seems like I chose the only week you were! But I can confirm that walking in Wales is pretty awesome and I hope you enjoy it. I’ve just gone round the Gower in epic weather. I hope you have many happy walks, and don’t forget to call by if you’re passing!
