Five Hundred Mile Walkies: One Man and a Dog Versus the South-west Peninsular Path
About this deal
Really interesting to read about the villages and coastline on your 500 Mile walk, I would watch it if it was a film or even a series.
It is now measured at 630 miles, though on this latest re-read, having now started to walk the Path myself, I notice much more how many buses, cars and other short-cuts he takes. He's supposed to be accompnnied by Jennifer, his on-off girlfriend, but when she fails to turn up, he takes his dog, Boogie - well, more that he can't find anywhere to have him for the duration.

I found this a very enjoyable read, funny in places, and a great advocate for the places the author has visited.
In 500 MILE WALKIES Mark and Boogie tackle Britains longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset.
I laughed out loud, perhaps because I've walked a long distance trail, or perhaps because I walk with a dog, or perhaps, this fella just has a humorous way of seeing things.This book was fab because of the humour and for Mark's honesty about the people he met along the way and the things he encountered. I have read and re-read this light hearted adventure, one of the best as far as easy reading goes this is the type of book that makes you casually wonder if your capable of walking the path yourself, and where you would borrow a dog from if you did decide to do this? One was a new purchase while another has rarely been outside any gear list I have compiled over the past decade.

I’m currently doing a virtual walk along the South West Coast Path (I’ve just walked around the Lizard peninsular) and so have revisited The Salt Path, and read this as being topical to my virtual walk.THE BOOK Omnibus edition of Mark Wallington's two humour/travel classics featuring the much-loved Boogie.
