To travel hopefully

Have just finished reading  To Travel Hopefully by Christopher Rush. It is a sad but ultimately encouraging book. The author describes in harrowing detail his travels through the death of his wife and the subsequent year of bereavement. Eventually, he follows in the donkey-steps of RL Stevenson (Travels with a donkey)… and this proves to be a form of catharsis. Would I like to traverse the Cevennes in France? Might have managed it twenty years ago….as for now, well I shall be content with the vicarious enjoyment given by books like these.
