... about it cause I have to share a room with 3 randoms as I couldn't get a room to myself) I am now looking into curtailing my trip by a week if I can. As once that trip is done, there's not a lot else I want to go see. The lovely walks I have done or could do have caused painful flair ups of pain that are making longer ones far less appealing. The adrenaline stuff I can't do anyway, and to be honest, I'm kinda done with days and days of driving to ...
