An avowed hater of camping, rain and mud, the author sets out to walk from one end of Wales to another with her partner, outdoor writer Harri Garrod Roberts.

With a birthday looming, her rucksack stuffed to capacity and the memory of a disastrous six-day, five-blister backpacking trip in Somerset still fresh in her mind, will she be up to the challenge ahead?

But walk it she must. For ‘O Fôn i Fynwy’ is a long-distance end to end walk devised by Harri to showcase the most stunning landscapes Wales has to offer.

This book is a personal account of the 364-mile journey as the couple hike the undulating and frequently mountainous route from Holyhead to Chepstow.

From a sleepless night on a Bronze Age settlement to meltdown in Llandovery, a hunt for a long-lost friend in Beddgelert to karaoke in Brecon, join the author as she encounters the very best (and worst) that Wales – and long-distance hiking – has to throw at her.


Never too old to backpack: a 364-mile walk through Wales’ by Tracy Burton is available from Amazon’s Kindle Store and other online bookstores priced at £2.99.
