    Story

    On the 23rd of July 2019 I’m getting on a plane and travelling to Spain where I will take part in Camino de Santiago. For those of you who don’t know what this is – it’s a route through North Western Spain travelled on foot – a pilgrimage. Historically, it is known as the ‘way of the saints’ or ‘the way of St James’. People follow the route or attend the retreat as it is considered a spiritual path that will help spiritual growth. I’ve just had my 50th birthday – quite a milestone, and I’m looking at my life and rethinking everything about it. This pilgrimage is important to me. It is a period of time that I have allocated for myself (five weeks trekking and camping alone), away from the hustle of everyday life, to work on myself; to work on releasing any thoughts, feelings and emotions that are not helpful to me entering this next phase of my life. I hope to deal with many personal issues. And to make plans for the future. And I will be sharing my journey on facebook and youtube for others to follow and hopefully benefit from www.facebook.com/theroadto50andbeyond I want to inspire people to think about their lives and goals and to understand that you’re never too old to start again or change course – hence the name The Road to 50 and Beyond. From Santiago, I will then head off to Finestere; roughly translated this means ‘the end of the earth’. Traditionally, pilgrims burn their shoes and clothes at this point – I’m certain I’ll be ready to burn mine! As a thank you to addiction expert Chris Hill of www.beatmyaddictions.com who has seen me through rough times – I am using this journey to raise money for his charity The Rob Hill Foundation (Reg. 1181220) which he set up in memory of his twin brother who he lost in 2014 to an accidental drug overdose. The Rob Hill Foundation www.robhillfoundation.org funds free addiction recovery groups and services; so that money and opportunity do not stand in the way of people getting the help they need. The programme is easy to follow and has a high success rate. Chris works with people from all walks of life including homeless people and those in very difficult circumstances. It is an absolute pleasure to be supporting this charity and I ask you to sponsor me doing Camino de Santiago with a donation which will all go to The Rob Hill Foundation. Thanking you in advance. Please follow my journey and keep supporting. I hope that something I do or say, in some small way help you on your journey through life.
