Salisbury to Amesbury

23 km – with Prasana and Saturday Walkers Club.

Starting in Salisbury with about 12-15 people of the Saturday Walkers Club, we walked along and crossed the river Avon, passed the Old Sarum (picture) and headed for Amesbury, bypassing Stonehenge from the far to avoid this crazy crowd of tourists, and arriving back in Salisbury with … well it was just Prasana and me. Where did the other 13 people go? We lost a few in the beginning of the walk, some ran ahead, some made a detour to the cathedral for some divine inspiration but what happened to our lunch group?? We walked with an older lady for a while but we lost her being back in Salisbury. Note to myself: never get a dog when you can’t take care of a human being!

What I do need to take care of is getting new walking shoes. I realized that I walked of the entire profile of my shoes. I wonder how many kilometers I walked in them. Certainly, 100 0 kilometers! šŸ™‚

The most bizzar thing, however, on the way was certainly the llama and camel farm. It was there all in a sudden. Imagine a high school with a high-pitch voice asking: “Is THAT a LLAMA?” “What’s a LLAMA doing here??” Well, that’s how I felt. And the answer: we don’t know. Fact is, you don’t need to go to a zoo to see llamas, just go to Wiltshire.
