    I hitched to Prague a couple of years ago. The total cost was hardly anything. Ferry crossing and food etc. I could have done it much cheaper if I had hitched back and took a cooking stove etc. Think I spent about £40 on ferry and food. Took about 2 days and slept in lorries and petrol stations.

    My lift to a 6hr track race fell through for the Saturday just gone, 2nd April, on the Friday afternoon. Not to be dismayed I printed off seven A4 Maps for the 61 Mile Weavers Way that goes between Great Yarmouth and Cromer in Norfolk, packed a little back of lunch and borrowed a camelbak and jumped on the first train at half 6 to take me to Yarmouth. Having previously walked the Weaver’s Way with a mate on a very cold November weekend, without a sleeping bag or much kit I felt like I owed it a proper beasting and that’d I’d run it this time.

    Needless to say it was the little adventure that I needed, plenty of llamas, some angry cows and seagulls and a rather nice spot of cake and ice cream in the fanciest pub I’ve been in in a long while (whilst wearing short shorts and sweating profusely, I think I shocked some of the other guests). It managed to get to the end about half 8 at night, just under twelve hours from when I started, and straight into the local shop for a massive bit of sugary love!

    Although its no crossing of a continent or sailing of an ocean, its still proof that you need little more than a bit of get up and go to have a wee adventure of a weekend. Needless to say I wasn’t the first to volunteer to take abseil sessions the next morning (although still more able than some after their Saturday exertions in the local town), but what the hell, if nothing else its a story for down the pub.

    Duration: 1 day
    Cost: £15 (mostly on sweets at the finish and a train down)
    Expertise: Nowt, just one foot in front of the other.
