WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Written by Rachel New of rachelnewsite.wordpress.com

This is a blog post I never thought I’d write. Yesterday I finished my 200km walk round Menorca, carrying everything I needed on my back, with very little by way of a plan.

 

I think it’s fair to say, on the whole, I’m not a quitter (my nick-name used to be competitive Rach!), but I honestly wasn’t sure I could do it. These are the things I was scared of happening:

 

Hip injury, knee injury, shoulder injury (all weak areas for me). Getting caught and stopped (wild camping is illegal in Menorca, as it is in most of Europe, they’re just hot on it here). Being too scared to sleep on my own in the wild. Falling over and smashing my face in (genuine concern when I did my practise walk and nearly fell over and smashed my face in about 46 times). Getting robbed. Breaking my phone. Running out of power (phone and me). Getting lost (I am always getting lost). Losing something/everything vital. Not being able to carry enough water to survive. Generally being a big baby and wanting to stop.
