What a fabulous experience! Last year my husband and I walked the WHW in 8 days, but walking it in 5 days this year turned out to be perfect for us!
We've enjoyed all the stages and met some wonderful people on the way.
Now it's deciding which route to walk next year, because it is indeed very addicting! :D

Hi, congrats!!!!
I last did it 4 years ago in 7 days and found it pretty easy going but am now doing it again from this Thursday but am not as fit as back then but still a keen hill walker when I get the chance.
May I ask what training did you do this time around and also the stages you did it in (getting confusing reports),am planning on using Sherpa Van to move my bag as am doing it with my Woof so will be camping along the way,
