Riassunto: A true story of a woman's transformation from an urban schoolteacher into a successful expeditioner—everywhere is within walking distance of you have the time When Paula Constant and her husband, Gary, attempt to break away from the conventional 9-to-5 routine, a few weeks lazing in a resort or packed in a tour bus is not what they have in mind. What starts out as an idle daydream to embark on "a travel to end all travels" turns into something far greater: an epic year-long walk from Trafalgar Square in London to Morocco and the threshold of the Sahara Desert. This is quite an ambition for a woman who favors sharing cigarettes and a few bottles of wine with friends over logging time on the treadmill. But if the sheer arduousness of walking more than 25 kilometers a day through the landscapes and cultural labyrinths of France, Spain, Portugal, and Morocco—without a support vehicle—is overlooked in her excitement, then so too is the unexpected journey of self-discovery and awakening that lies beyond every bend. Both the companions she meets on the road and the road itself provide what no university can offer: a chance to experience life's simple truths face to face.
L'autore: Paula Constant began walking from Trafalgar Square in 2004. Since then, she has walked more than 12,000 km through eight countries: England, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, and Niger. From 2005-2007, she walked more than 7,000 km through the Sahara, until she was halted by civil war in Niger. Her second book is Sahara.
