With Rucksack and Bus Pass is the personal and inspirational account of the author and his wife, Johanna, who set
themselves a challenge – to walk all 184 miles of the Thames path.
The route took them from the source of the river in Gloucestershire to the barrier in the Thames Estuary. They
travelled through an ever-changing landscape, marvelling at nature every step of the way, fascinated by the history
that surrounded them along the paths they took.
During their walk they proved that as pensioners in their 70s, they could tackle the route and take pleasure in setting
themselves a challenge –and succeeding.
With Rucksack and Bus Pass is the story of their journey. It’s their experiences as dedicated walkers delighting in the
countryside and the challenges faced along the way. It shares their exhilaration of a challenge successfully met and
will encourage readers to get out and explore the thames path themselves.
