The last few months have been the busiest I have been work-wise. The heavy storms in December to February have taken its’ toll on me as well as lot of people in Ireland. Sometimes, working in property claims is not all it is made out to be. But now that things have calmed down, I can finally start thinking of my return to Spain. I have a little over 2 months before I touch down in Biarritz. Now where is that backpack of mine??
I have arranged for a practise walk in a well known trail in the midlands before I go. I hope to meet some guys I met on the Camino last May and walk the Leafy Loop in Durrow, Co Laois. It is 24km long walk through forests, rivers, up hills and down into Durrow itself. If it is a fine day, it could be exactly what I need before I tackle the Pyrenees. It is just a start though. I am by no means prepared so hopefully this walk will point me in the right direction.
