By Glenyce Johnson, Founder of Wandering the World
My year of walking adventures with Wandering the World is off to a brilliant start with so much more to look forward to in 2021.
My first escorted group walk of the year was one I was thrilled to be a part of. I led a group of blind and low vision walkers on what was an inspiring day and a great learning experience for me. I know the walkers loved it too.
I wrote about this special walk and you can Read more Here.
In 2021 our planned Australian Guided Walks take us as far east as Gippsland, out west to remote parts of WA, as far north as Kakadu and down south to lush Tasmania. Our new walking range has everything from striking coastal panoramas to the bush and lush rainforest, along with a sprinkle of red dust.
With our clients keen to keep walking in Australia this year, only a few places remain on some of our.
Please get in touch with me if you are interested in learning more.
When wine and slow walking meet?
I have got some exciting ideas for those of you that may like to slow down the pace, cover a little less ground and take the time to experience the local food and wine. I’m mulling over some itineraries that spend time exploring the wineries of the great Coonawarra region or visiting the cheesemakers of Timboon to sample the local produce.
Stay tuned for some Stroll and Wine options and let me know if you are keen to hear more.

Pope decrees the extension of the 2021 Holy Year on the Camino
The Pope has announced the Holy Year will be extended throughout 2022 due to the exceptional circumstances of Covid-19.
About 14 times a Century, we experience what is called a “Holy Year” on the Camino. During this special year, Pilgrims from all over the world walk to the tomb of St James the Apostle in Santiago de Compostela to celebrate. Holy Years are rare and happen in a cycle of every 6, 5, 6, and 11 years.
