It’s been a long and strangely difficult day. Reality has been at odds with Google maps and, perhaps not to surprisingly, reality refused to budge.

But it has also been a pleasant day, continuing the last few days theme of people stoping me to talk and ask about the-walk.

A few moments ago, I sat down and looked at the map. I wanted to check the route that remains before I reach Gibraltar. It looks like this:

Looks like there is still a fair way to go.
But then I zoomed out so that I could see Stockholm, where I started from.

Suddenly, the distance remaining seemed almost inconsequential. I guess Einstein was right, even walking distance is relative!
