The name of the podcast episode is: EPISODE 30: A 57 DAY HIKE ACROSS GREAT BRITAIN (WHILST BAREFOOT!) and you can listen to the full episode here:
Another extreme traveller tale and feat of endurance!
In May 2019, world traveller, the Barefoot Backer, undertook an epic 57-day, 952-mile trek from the furthest Easterly point of Great Britain to the furthest Westerly point. Few people had walked the route before, but it wasn’t the only challenge BB, a somewhat inexperienced trekker, faced. As his name would suggest, BB’s goal was to walk as much of the route barefoot whilst at the same time dealing with his dyspraxia, a condition which affects physical coordination and spacial awareness.
Carrying all his equipment and part wild camping, learn what inspired BB to undertake the challenge, how he planned his route, and the logistics and difficulties he faced each day whilst catching a glimpse of Great Britain in all her glorious geographical and climatic extremes.

About the Barefoot Backpacker
BB – who has a big following on social media and hosts his own podcast show called ‘Travel Tales Beyond the Brochure’ – describes himself as a middle aged cynical hippie, a control freak who hates commitment. Taking as inspiration such diverse elements as Michael Palin, 18th Century diplomats, and The Littlest Hobo, his aim is to see as much of the unusual, the unknown, and the unappreciated, as he possibly can.
You can follow BB on Twitter:

Wow Ruth. The Barefoot Backer is inspired! Doing long hikes is one thing. Impressive enough. Hiking for 57 days barefoot is beyond epic. Good for him. The logistical part is one holding me back from doing a long hike anywhere. Keep on inspiring my friend.
