Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path - Incipit


I'm just back from my first experience of long distance walking.

From September the 6th to the 12th I hiked solo the 150 km of the Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path.

The experience was unique, overwhelming. I came back home changed, happy, contented. Feeling an immense sensation of achievement.

So, I have decided to share this experience, the lessons learned, the practical or technical aspects and the hundreds of pictures taken.

This post is only the start. In the days to come I will be posting photos, excerpts of my journey log and sundry afterthoughts.

POST SCRIPTUM

One might wonder why an Italian is writing in English.
Well, the answer is: audience extent.

Although Italian language can boast such ultimate masterpieces as Dante's Commedia, Bruno's De l'infinito, universo e mondi, Vico's Scienza Nuova, Leopardi's Canti and Montale's Ossi di seppia, it is unquestionable that the number of Italian readers is fairly limited.

On the contrary, English - being the lingua franca of these globalised times - is a mandatory choice if one wants to potentially communicate with the largest number of people.

CAPTATIO BENEVOLENTIAE

English is not my native language and I am essentially self-taught. But, as above told, I want to use it for the sake of openness. So:

your humble patience pray,
Gently to heare, kindly to iudge
