After a short period of adjustment to ‘normal life’, and, I dare say, some personal reflection, Nick has contacted us to say thank you for the support you gave to him and to announce that he will be giving a talk about his walk on 1 September.
Thanks so much for all your support before and during my walk to Istanbul. Knowing that people were following me, reading and enjoying my blog, made a lot of difference on the rocky, rainy days.
I hope you all got your postcards. Some of you are also due a handmade book, and/ or a CD of audio recordings from the journey. I will get round to these as soon as possible — be patient, they will come!
I’ll be starting work on the book very soon. It will hopefully be published next year — you can sign up for updates on my blog, if you want to be kept informed.
For anyone in London, I’m giving a talk about the journey at the Globetrotters Club, who also funded me. It’s on Saturday September 1st, around 3.00pm, here:
Church of Scotland Church Hall,
London, WC2B 5EZ
I think it’s £5 or £6 on the door, but they normally have an enormous array of free biscuits. Come if you can.
Thanks again for all your support!
Here is a useful map!
Couldn’t make it to England either. Any update about how this talk went?
It was very successful Florence. Nick was clearly still very emotional about the whole experience.
Looking forward to the book. Can’t quite make England. Wonderful wishes to you and congratulations on your journey.
I live in NC, USA. Am a huge Fermor fan; wish I could be there for the talk! From what i have read, I am sure your recent journey is going to be a great interest for your own insights and by comparisons.
