    Is there actual boat-based internet access or are you just still close enough to shore?

    The boat has free, slow, WiFi in public areas.
    You can of course upgrade for a substantial fee… 🙄

    What’s next then, TJ? Did your walk along a few kms of the Compostelle route inspire? You mentionned lacking company a couple of times. On either El Camino Francès or Camino del Norte there’s so much company it’s sometimes nice to be on your own. I enjoyed the walks as much if not more than any cycle touring I’ve done. It’s quite nice not having a bike to look after when I fancy walking around a cathedral, museum or whatever. Towns become an attraction rather than a headache.

    By the time I was free local engagements you were heading to meet Doug so we didn’t get to meet. He was no doubt far better company than me. 😉

    Shame we didn’t get to meet.

    I did enjoy the bit of walking but it made the arthritis in my feet flare up badly unfortunately. I need to find some way of dealing with that if i am to do longvwalks in thw future

    I need some time to absorb it all really before i decide whats next

    I’m back in blighty. I set off from the ferry port on the wrong side of the road.🙄🤣 Im in a posh hotel just outsidethe port. Drive home tomorrow.

    Ferry company refused to pay for my hotel but offered me 25% off my ticket which is hakf the cost.

    I shall continue to pester them hoping for more.

    Pint of ipa to hand.

    I’m home. Thats it – its all over.

    I’m shattered and wired on red bull after a fairly epic drive north. Motorways congested from south of Birmingham to North of Manchester. Whatever the A road out of Plymouth is was horrible – raining and busy. Maybe I should have overnighted somewhere but I just wanted to get home

    My own bed tonight and some clean clothes

    Hope you made it to the toilet for that long wee, rather than soil your nice bed!

    Congrats and thanks for the journal.

    Nooooo! Think that means I’m actually going to have to work now, been enjoying your travel expeditions and daily updates to escape the hum-drum.

    Anyway, hope you enjoyed your own bed and being back in Scotland. Thanks for taking us all with you on your travels

    Another many thanks for your uplifting blog of your travels TJ.
    Glad you are back in one piece, the forum will be poorer for not having your latest update to catch up on.
    I’m in awe of your stamina to manage to stay out on the road for such a long tour. I find I’m ready to go home after just a couple of weeks, so have followed your progress with much interest.
    Once the dust has settled a bit, maybe you would consider letting us know what you’d change for next time, along with any tips or knowledge gained on the way.

    Anyone volunteering to do the next travelogue?

    I’d like to add my thanks for this post.

    You mentioned earlier wanting to do the Rhein-Danube route. You will be welcome to rest up in Augsburg, or have a riding partner for a day if you do.

    Another ‘thanks for the thread’ from me – kept me sane over the last few weeks with everyone’s contributions too. I’m going to go back to the start of your journey now as I only joined part way through.

    Cheers
