A swift goodbye

By the time you read this, I’ll probably be on the way to the airport. Faro, that is. These past two weeks have been a tumble of emotions, but right now I’m full of excitement. The beach will have to wait till my return.

Travel isn’t easy right now, but I think I’ve ticked all the boxes. Vaccine certificate acquired. Tests undertaken and booked. Checked in and locator form completed. Mask at the ready. Packing the suitcase is the least of your worries. What awaits at the other end is what’s important.

Have a great Summer and I’ll hope to see you when Still Restlessjo goes live in the Autumn.

As I won’t be around to share for a while, here are the latest walks you’ve sent me. No more, please! With gratitude. It’s been enormous fun.


I’ve received many walks over time, taking me to places I’ve always wanted to go. Here’s another, from Teresa!

La Cite de Carcassone

It’s always been a privilege to share Drake’s world –

Walking on and off

A bit back to the future

RupaIi has the last word, and some good advice!

Investing in good shoes is beneficial

That’s it! Bye, till we meet again!


  1. I know you’ve already landed, but I can share your mix of emotions as you travel. Stressful, yes! Even more so now. We had a similar reaction as we headed to Canada. The flight attendants were turning away people who didn’t have the right vaccine, or didn’t take the covid test within 72 hours of takeoff. It is crazy. But I’m sure you’re enjoying your time with family now! Have a great time and a wonderful break.

  2. Enjoy your special time with your special people, Jo! While it’s not easy to organize and achieve, I’m glad you are there now, able to enjoy some precious moments. We do what we have to do to visit our loved ones. Have fun and I hope you get some rest too.
