... journey. I've been asked a number of times to give an update of the distance I've covered since leaving Canterbury on 1st June. It is difficult to be precise because there are wide discrepancies between the various guidebooks I've seen, but it won't be too far wide of the mark to say I've completed more than 1400 kms, with a further 4-500kms still to go.
