Walking 1977k

A couple of months ago I decided to move back home to Galicia, Northwest Spain, after living in London for almost 10 years. As it felt a little sudden to just hop on a plane and find myself there in under 2 hours, I thought I'd walk instead.

Not counting the ferry ride across the English Channel, I will be covering a total of 1977km (1228 miles) on foot over 11 weeks.

There is something calming and somehow poetic about such a long walk - constantly reflecting on what's left behind and, at the same time, getting ready for what lies ahead. And, of course, it is nice to think that during that time I will be relying on my very environmentally-friendly feet as my main means of transportation!Yes, I'm asking you to sponsor me... But no, I'm not asking you to give me your change: I'm asking you to create change.

The DoNation is all about creating a more sustainable world, about protecting the environment on which our livelihoods depend. And the environment needs our action more than it needs our cash.

HOW IT WORKS:
Browse the DoActions and find one (or more) that suits you, then make your pledge(s). Some are really easy; others take a bit more effort.

You only pledge to do your chosen action for two months and all the information you need is provided here on The DoNation, making it really easy to complete. You'll receive a few helpful reminders and then at the end of the two months you'll be asked to confirm how you got on.

So please, get doing!

Thank you!!
