It has taken me a while to figure this out: Long-distance walking is incredibly good for my mind. As long as I’m walking through nature with minimal people around, my mind doesn’t worry. Doing it in high doses is quite effective. My mind is calm, positive and creative and I like the feeling of accomplishment after walking far.
Today was 24 km (15 miles) on the Kerry Way from Killarney to Kenmare. Stunning hills. And it just so happened to be the hottest day of the year in Ireland, a whopping 30 degrees Celsius. Yes, that’s hot for Ireland.
