Last two days were very hard. The weather was truly unforgiving. During my life I have never experienced such a harsh weather on trip before. Well, yes I did, but it lasted minutes, not whole days. Yesterday I have slept in a dense pine forest to try avoid the worst snow. Yep, that’s right, it’s still snowing here in Scotland.

Long story short: very wet backpack and everything inside where the dampness could get. Two kind people who offered me a lift to Peebles – I must have looked really desperately. Walk to Innerleithen and sleeping in hotel tonight, drying all my things. The weather should get better on Thursday, but then the long lasting rain will probably return. The journey wants to test me properly. Hopefully I can make it all.

  1. I experienced having all my things wet for 3 days, it turned in drying fest – I did all possible things to dry my clothes, shoes etc., just to get wet again. It really gets into your head after some time.
    Quick tip – get a emergency insulation foil, ideally 2 of them (1 under and 1 on top), these things reflect your own heat and help you keep warm even if you are wet.
