Training & Qualifications
In 2015 I walked the Camino De Santiago trail across Spain, from France to Finisterre (on the coast) over 6 weeks, via the main route known as "The French Way (Camino Francés)". I continued south into Portugal by train visiting Porto, Lisbon, Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and then flew to the Azores.
