We're Ged McFaul and Erin Williams, and in autumn 2015, we're taking a walk through the United Kingdom. We're the Slow Travel Girls.
From Cardiff, Wales, we're walking approximately 80 miles into the English countryside, where we'll find the source of the River Thames. From the source of the Thames, we're following the river approximately 180 miles to London. We're adventuring. We're camping, couch-hopping, speaking at schools, making friends, avoiding bulls, swearing at hills, and documenting our journey. We'll talk about the value of using our bodies and experiencing the world slowly. We'll also reflect on the realities that make our journey possible.
Along the way, we're also raising funds and awareness for two awesome organizations that inspire us: Hope & Homes for Children and StoryCorps.
