A Welsh Wander
Tom Davies Other books by Tom Davies
On 26th July 2016, Tom Davies left his home in Presteigne. Nine weeks later he arrived home, having walked the 1,100-mile perimeter of Wales, raising £6,700 for Alzheimer's Society.
This heart-warmingly open and honest book is bursting with interesting facts about places along his route, vivid descriptions and photos of stunning scenery on the Offa's Dyke Path and Wales Coast Path, magical wildlife encounters, bizarre anecdotes, random and life-reaffirming generosity from strangers, and even a few dark moments when he felt like he'd bitten off more than he could chew. But most of all it contains an astounding energy and positivity, and a contagious love for the breathtaking coast and scenery of Wales which cannot fail to get the reader's feet itching to get out and see more of this wonderful country.
"For one so young he is unusually willing to initiate conversations, and he has many heart-warming and optimistic interactions with individuals and groups of people he meets. You will feel a lot happier about human nature after reading this book. I very much enjoyed travelling with this delightful character. He will have inspired people of all kinds and ages, I am sure, to make longer or shorter treks in the glorious Welsh countryside. " - Richard Hartnup, Gwales
