The Thames Path Project
Why the Thames Path?
Walking - particularly out in the open countryside seems to be like a battery charger for me. Stand me on a mountain overlooking a green valley, fresh air bursting my lungs and I feel rejuvinated. Allow me to explore a wooded hillside and I'm like a kid. The sad thing is that dispite this, I have spent the last 10 years talking about how much I enjoy walking but not actually doing any. As part of my new personal drive to focus on achieving my goals rather than wollowing in my potential, the Thames Path Project seems the perfect way for me to get some exercise, have regular breaks from running my business, to re-aquaint myself with distance walking and hopefully to learn new things and meet new people.
So here I am...doing all these things.
Why the Web Site?
Yes - but why go to all this trouble?
I hope above all that this site will be both useful and interesting to anyone thinking of doing some or all of the path, or even people who are in the Thames area and are looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. I have therefore tried to include references to other sites on the web and to take photos that give people some idea of what to expect on each part of the path.
