Picking up our hire car I knew then that what had been for the last sixteen days was over. We had walked the surface and the contour of the Earth, each foot step solidly placed on rock, pebble, moor and peat, over creek and stream and through mud. We had felt the sting of the sun and the stifling humidity. We had been drenched to the skin and cold, we had walked amongst the clouds and seen the mist roll in from the sea.
