We slowed right down, the last week or so of our trip.
Leaving the continent felt surreal. We had a whole day, almost, on the boat to acclimatise, but still it was strange to know that after two months on the road we were heading home.
We were eased back into England with a wonderful weekend with friends – sharing twenty years of collective memories around the warmth of a campfire, sun drenched days spent yomping through fields to find a pub one day, a swimming pond the next.
Orson spent much of the time napping in the sling, exhausted by his adventures. His brother hitched a ride too: those five year old legs had kept up with us for around 350,000 steps whilst we were on the road, so they most definitely deserved a rest.
