Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. It is said if you do the entire path, the total height climbed is four times the height of Everest, yet it is very accessible and there are plenty of characterful pubs close to the path at which to enjoy a well earned meal and a drink.

Again, from having no idea how to skull an ancient skiff, he soon settles into the routine of raising with the dawn (or some time in the morning), skulling gently for a few miles and whiling away his time chatting to lock-keepers and studying the wildlife. Two books in one, I enjoyed the walk around the South West Coastpath more than the rowing up the Thames river.What 500 Mile Walkies is, is a diverting, humorous, affectionate and self-deprecating account of Mark’s walk with possibly the worst, and best, canine companion it is possible to borrow from a friend relieved to be shot of his pet for a few weeks. Gear talk: Pad-Pal, the world’s smallest and lightest electric pad inflator is getting smaller and lighter!

I've walked many different stretches of the Path over the years and it was a pleasure to read about the areas I knew, as well as the sections that were new to me, such as the parts in Dorset. Really interesting to read about the villages and coastline on your 500 Mile walk, I would watch it if it was a film or even a series. First they had to survive against all odds as they embarked on a heroic journey up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of Kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. This is a heroic study of survival against the odds, as together they take a journey, up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset.I have read and re-read this light hearted adventure, one of the best as far as easy reading goes this is the type of book that makes you casually wonder if your capable of walking the path yourself, and where you would borrow a dog from if you did decide to do this? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

His descriptions of Boogie made me laugh, especially when everyone kept patting him on the head, and commenting on his appearance. This is a nice restful, mildly amusing story of a man and a dog trekking along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs to escape to abit of comedy and simplicity and i can promise it wont fail to put a smile on your face. I laughed out loud, perhaps because I've walked a long distance trail, or perhaps because I walk with a dog, or perhaps, this fella just has a humorous way of seeing things.This book inspired Radnor Winn to walk the South West Coast Path and her subsequent book, The Salt Path, transformed her life. THE BOOK Omnibus edition of Mark Wallington's two humour/travel classics featuring the much-loved Boogie. As 2023 comes to an end, Three Points of the Compass takes a glance at a handful of items of gear that accompanied me on trail. I would have liked a bit more about Boogie and his misadventures, but all in all, it was a good read. Mark Wallingtons travels with boogie are books that are very good to go back to after a read that has taken a lot of concentration and investment.

The path goes along Devon and Cornwall's rugged north coasts and their less rugged south coasts as well as Dorset’s chalk cliffs.In 500 MILE WALKIES Mark and Boogie tackle Britains longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset. The humorous travel book we've been waiting for' DAILY MAIL) In BOOGIE UP THE RIVER, man and dog take to the water to trace the source of the Thames in a siff of the same vintage as Three Men in a Boat. Mile Walkies' tells of how the author decided to walk from Minehead to Poole, following the coast line through Devon, Cornwell and Dorset. An account likely to be more emotive if that is what you seek, but which I haven’t yet read, is ‘The Salt Path’, about a couple made homeless and with the husband suffering from cancer, who choose to walk it to try and get the most out of life.
