Some truth in the rumour

I wrote a little while ago about the urban myth of the traveller and his 100 slides BUT I have just seen a video called the Art of Walking,Great Ocean Walk, Victoria, Australia

One of the walkers is John Francis, also known as the Planetwalker. His story is remarkable and includes a period of 17 years where he did not speak, just wrote, gestured and played his banjo. He now has a lot of common sense to say about environmental issues. John is also remarkable in that he keeps wonderful journals as he is travelling in which he writes, paints and sketches and then gives them away to others he meets will walking to carry on the story.
