5.0 out of 5 stars Walking the Woods and the Water, 1 April 2014
This review is from: Walking the Woods and the Water: In Patrick Leigh Fermor's footsteps from the Hook of Holland to the Golden Horn (Paperback)
Walking the Woods and the Water is Nick Hunt’s charming, evocative homage to the life and travels of Patrick Leigh Fermor. In 1933, when he was just eighteen years old, Patrick Leigh Fermor set out on an epic walk from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople and then many years later he wrote a trilogy of books that chronicled the real and imagined adventures that he experienced on his great trek. When Nick Hunt was eighteen years old, he read Fermor’s A Time of Gifts and dreamed of embarking on his own grand European walk. In 2011 Hunt finally set out to fulfil his dream and Walking the Woods and the Water is his account of trekking some 2500 miles across Europe with only Fermor’s books to guide him. The countries that Hunt visits are now very different from when Fermor was passing through but this contrast makes the book all the more interesting. While much has changed, Hunt still encounters friendly people and amazing sites just as often as he has to cope with inhospitable weather and conditions and occasional man-made danger. Walking the Woods and the Water is an inspiring account of an amazing journey that few people would be brave enough to undertake.
