Hiking from Eastbourne to Lands End to John O Groats in a National Trail crushing extravaganza. We were only going to do LEJOG, but as we started looking at the route we decided to use the north section of the South West Coast Path to make a start and eventually figured it’d be rude not to start in Poole and do the whole thing. That somehow morphed into “might as well tag the South Downs Way onto the start of that” and I have no idea why but I’m guessing wine might have played a role in that decision.

I’ll add blog posts to this page as I write them, and pin-drops to the Google Map below as we progress. I’ll even try to post stuff on Instagram too but no guarantees because I am inherently lazy.

(This budget is for one human. It’s just what I’m spending, so sometimes accommodation will be based on two sharing but only my half is accounted for.)

Well it’s rude not to have a little lie in when you’re allowed to be where you are isn’t it? Plus there was literally no point in rushing this morning.…
