Night 6 and Day 7: The Kerry Way

The best really does come last. I left Kenmare in a fairly disheveled state and began a 3-km ascent toward the windy gap. My aim was to reach wilderness and camp immediately. However, it was a beautiful evening and my one foot in front of the other began to carry me further and further. IContinue reading “Night 6 and Day 7: The Kerry Way”

Day 6 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE Everyday since day 3 I think I’ll struggle to make it to the next town. When I arrive in the next town, completely worn out, I think that is the most I’ve suffered so far and that I couldn’t possible suffer anymore. Of course, I did make it to Kenmare today and IContinue reading “Day 6 of the Kerry Way”

Day 5 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE Today began with renewed optimism due to a dry morning, a large wall behind my tent that allowed for some unpacking and repacking, and proximity to the sea which allowed for my first wash and change of clothes on the trip (it’s a glamorous life I know!) The first 3.5 hours to CaherdanielContinue reading “Day 5 of the Kerry Way”

Day 4 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE Not sure where to start. It’s 6:30-pm and I’m having a cold beer, in glorious sunshine, at a beautiful seaside town called Waterville. It seems a long way from 9-am in Cahersiveen when I packed up in the rain. After the first couple of kilometres my feet were drowned and I knew IContinue reading “Day 4 of the Kerry Way”

Day 3 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE Up a bit earlier today. Applied some compeed plasters to the parts of my feet that were starting to struggle. I treated myself to a change of boots and socks. I just need to dry the first pair with newspaper tonight. After the rain cleared, I was able to pack up the tentContinue reading “Day 3 of the Kerry Way”

Day 2 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE The day began with a cup of coffee at the door of my tent. “I can’t believe this view comes for free”, I thought to myself. I got going at 10:20-am. It would be a more strenuous day, up and over two valleys with stunning mountain views. I descended into a glen andContinue reading “Day 2 of the Kerry Way”

Day 1 of the Kerry Way

Donate HERE I’m not sure I’ve ever seen as much beauty in a single day. It felt like being on one continuous movie set. The ordinary beauty of oak trees and streams creating a bridge between the less ordinary beauty of mountain tops, waterfalls, lakes and breath taking valleys. 8 hours of uninterrupted beauty. TheContinue reading “Day 1 of the Kerry Way”
