Today's walkitcornwall quote

  "'Growth' and 'progress' are among the key words in our national vocabulary. But modern man now carries Strontium 90 in his bones ... DDT in his fat, asbestos in his lungs. A little more of this 'progress' and 'growth,' and this man will be dead." — Morris K. "Mo" Udall

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, an opportunity to see cornwall up close without having to consider where to park the car. Have enjoyed the walks for several years and look ofrward to more.

phoca thumb m p1100734We go walking in Corfu on the trails and footpaths that have enabled ancient people, pilgrims, farmers and visitors to traverse the greenest island in the Ionian collection of islands. 2017 will be our 4th year. We walk in October as the island winds down from a busy summer season so we walk when the island is alive with autumn flowers where we walk. We explore the mountain villages and the coast, ambling in olive groves and woodlands visiting the parts unaltered over centuries. The hospitality is open, enthusiastic and giving when all one needs to do is greet the locals in their own language with a cursory "hello".
