The Soulwalk Route

On 1 January, Carmen started walking the British Isles coastline. She’s breaking the walk into stages (for the time being) with the aim that by summer she’ll be on the road full time.

STAGE 1 – Weston s Mare to Minehead

1-5 January 2020

STAGE 2 – Porlock Weir to as far as she goes…

24 February – 1 March 2020

STAGE 3 – North Cornwall (*depending on where Stage 2 finishes)

12 March – 30 March 2020

STAGE 4 – Cornwall

15 April – 8 May 2020

So many more stages to come. We’ll be looking for different places to stay. Be in YHA, Independent Hostels, Couch Surfing, AirB&B, Hotels, National Trust, Lighthouses.

We will be organising Soultalks in some of those venues, which you can join at too. E.g. Eden Project, Gara Hotel (Salcombe). They will be about the adventure, but also about the benefits of walking in nature.
