The Long Walk, 5000 kilometers

                      365 days of inspiration walk,                  covering a total distance of 5000 Kilometers .   I am walking from Narva in Estonia to Cadiz in Spain. Starting on the 21st of April 2018 and finishing on the 15th April 2019. Following the coastlines of Europe. Estonia , Latvia , Lithuania , Poland , Germany, Holland , Belgium , France , Spain, Portugal , and Spain again. The official Route known as the E9 , has never been completed in its entirety before, my intent is to be the first person, and probably the oldest person to complete it.!!  Each day I will be photographing inspirational people and telling the story behind the story . All from people I meet along the route. I will also be giving the following , along the route. 1. Free photo lessons 2. Free photographs for charity portfolios. 3. Free Reiki healing. 4. Mapping the route for the European Ramblers association. You can follow me on YouTube , Instagram , Facebook and my Blog . I would really appreciate your support with me in this adventure , with donations large or small for food and  lodgings for myself and other people I meet along the route, who are less fortunate than ourselves. I am extremely grateful for all donations. You can also specifically donate towards local charities or for healing's to Friends and Family.  Any funds raised will be donated to local charities and institutions in each of the various countries visited . At the end of the journey, any funds left will be donated to the Make a wish Foundation for children. COSTS. If youd like to join me on any part of the route, just send me a message.  If youd like me to visit a family member or freind, and pass on a personal message, again just let me know.    You can find all the details below.  Route 2018/2019 ESTONIA Start : Narva Joesuu Rakvere Viitna Tallinn Risti Haapsalu Panga Tuuru Lihula Komsi Parnu Haademeeste Kabli   LATVIA Ainazi Salacgriva Liepupe Saulkrasti Carnikava Riga Jurmala Engure Melnsils Kolka Mikeltornis Ventspils Liepaja LITHUANIA Palanga Klapeda Silute POLAND Elblag Gdansk Gdynia Wladyslawowo Utska Darlowo Koszalin Kolobrzeg Swinoujscie Szczecin.
