I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Guy and I have been an avid walker since the age of one. Since then, I rank the Pennine Way and the Thames Path as two of my greater achievements. Alas, too many birthday cream teas have removed my ability to walk the former, but I am currently working my way along the latter for the second time. I used to lead many walks for the Farnham Walking Festival and was the main organiser for the sadly cancelled 2020 event. I also enjoy walking with the Farnham Ramblers Sunday group. I have been providing the written walks in the Farnham Herald since April 2019, with the promise that the Editor will convert them into a book once I have submitted a hundred. Long way to go!
In previous lifetimes, I have lived in many countries (the USA, Netherlands, Thailand and Cambodia to name a few). I number author, website designer, professional photographer and working for the circus among my former occupations (but never mountain unicycling). For the moment at least, I'm fully retired and live in Farnham, which I enjoy very much.
I still design websites (viz FarnhamWalker). My hobbies include collecting Transition Town Banknotes, researching odd subjects (J.M. Barrie, the Wey Valley Light Railway and the Robertson brothers are some of my more recent studies) and of course walking. I love walking on my own, when I can think of nothing and clear my head of all the troubles and worries the world throws at me. Top up on the happy endorphins you might say. But, just occasionally, I enjoy the company of other like-minded souls and the anti-social cantankerous so-and-so in me takes a day off.
If you can catch me on one of these days, I can make surprisingly pleasant company. Want to see? Join me on one of our friendly walks and you are welcome to enjoy the beautiful countryside with us.
