I'm traveling from Land's End to John O' Groats by means of Google Street View and Fitbit. In other words I have actually walked every mile I log, just in a more mundane location. This blog records the route I might have taken, if I had the luxury of taking a few months off work!

Today's route
 

Penrhyndeudraeth

Passing through Penrhyndeudraeth on the start of today's walk. Today I will actually take an unnecessary detour through the village of Portmeirion, famous from the 1960s TV show, "The Prisoner".

Passing Castel Deudraeth - a luxury hotel in Portmeirion.

Portmeirion

The next section is my route through the Portmeirion village itself - quite a surreal experience, even using google street view - definitely on the list for a future visit in real life.

Windy country paths take me down now to Porthmadog

Crossing the sea barrier to the town of Porthmadog, where I hang up my boots at the end of another pleasant day walking.
