Keith Badger - Joining Loose Ends

From the Camino to the Pacific Crest Trail, many people are recognising the life-changing force of moving through the landscape on foot. At the age of 58, Keith Badger suddenly found himself with a dream and desire to return to his birthplace in England and walk. It was a simple plan, to walk from one end of Britain to the other with his Australian wife Debby. And yet as they traversed the country, from John O’Groats to Land’s End, Keith and Debby found themselves confronting far greater challenges than the landscape and shocking weather. Join Keith as he discusses his life-changing journey.
