 I got a bit of a shock this morning when I went to a local school in Wallasey to give a motivational talk. I was expecting maybe twenty to thirty students! I had about 120!! So definitely one of the largest groups I’ve talked with. They were all aged about sixteen to seventeen years old and had just done AS Levels.

I love, love, loved travelling around South East Asia. I had such an amazing time when I was eighteen on my first gap year in-between school and university. I spent about four months in total backpacking around Asia.

This post is all about walking and why walking is so good for you! Today the majority of people lead very sedentary lives, people drive to work, sit behind a desk for eight to ten hours a day, get back in the car and head home to sit in front of the television before going to bed and doing it all again the next day.
