Wales Coast Path: overview

As I explained in ‘Why I started hiking‘ and ‘Confession: I didn’t train for my hike‘, I didn’t finish the whole path but I never mentioned how far I actually got. I think it is about time I shared a bit more details.

I started hiking in Chester, a lively city near the border of Wales. After spending the night in a local youth hostel I embarked on my journey. I wasn’t hard to find the first way markers and I soon passed the ‘Welcome to Wales’ sign.

I followed these markers for about six weeks and made it through four and a half of the eight stages before overworking my shoulder and being forced to forfeit. I got as far as St. Davids, a tiny city with a rich history.  All in all, I hiked about 800 km (according to the distance tables).
