By Paula Constant
When Paula consistent and her husband, Gary, try and separate from from the traditional 9-to-5 regimen, a number of weeks lazing in a inn or packed in a travel bus isn't what they've got in brain. What begins out as an idle daydream to embark on 'a commute to finish all travels' becomes anything some distance better: an epic year-long 5000-kilometre stroll from Trafalgar sq. in London to Morocco and the brink of the Sahara wilderness. really an ambition for an not worthy lady who favours sharing cigarettes and some bottles of wine with associates over logging time at the treadmill. but when the sheer arduousness of jogging over 25 kilometres an afternoon in the course of the landscapes and cultural labyrinths of France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco - with no help automobile - is missed in her pleasure, then so too is the unforeseen trip of self discovery and awakening that lies past each bend. either the partners she meets at the highway and the line itself offer what no college can supply: an opportunity to adventure life's easy truths head to head. Paula's transformation from an city basic tuition instructor right into a profitable expeditioner is a real story of a standard girl reaching anything striking. it's a trip that starts off with one footstep.
