“A CELEBRATION at the finishing line of an incredible ADVENTURE” Time flies when you’re having fun, they say. And while I have felt every single step of our 239km journey around Ibiza, after ten Saturdays of walking Around The Island [ATI] it feels surreal to look back on the whirlwind of experiences we have shared. [...]

“INTEGRATION: From Strangers To Friends” Pick axes. Ropes. Waterproof mountaineering boots. After the rain, hail and cliff-climbing adventures of the previous Saturday, the Around The Island [short: ATI] group chat was dominated by banter about how we should prepare for Stage 9. But as if Walking Ibiza founder Toby Clarke had had a word with [...]

"We can all be HEROES..." My heart is beating at 100mph while I’m desperately clinging onto the side of a cliff. I’m supposed to slide across the mud-covered rockface before lowering myself back onto solid ground, but as I look down onto the stormy sea 20 meters below me, my mind goes blank. “This is [...]

"LOVE is all around us..." “When I was trying to think of this week’s ‘word of the day’, at first I didn’t want to choose this particular one. I thought it would be too much of a cliché, but then I went with it anyway. So the word for Stage 7 is… ‘love’.” Walking Ibiza [...]

"It's all about the JOURNEY not the finish line..." It’s 9.13am on a chilly Saturday in November and I have already shed actual tears brought on by the crisp morning air, before wiping pearls of sweat off my forehead just half an hour later. All that before I have even had a bite of my [...]

"WHY are we doing this?" ‘Why? Why am I doing this?’ I asked myself as I tried to squeeze a last bit of energy out of my tired legs while careful navigating rocks and roots on a steep uphill climb through the forest. Nearing the final part of a solid 10-hour day, I felt a [...]

"FLEXIBILITY of the mind & body..." ‘Flexibility’. Since we started out on the Around The Island In 10 Walks series of weekly hikes, it has become a little game of mine to try to gage how challenging the route ahead will be based on Walking Ibiza founder Toby Clarke’s ‘word of the day’. Following after [...]

"ACCEPTANCE is key..." ‘Hello everyone. You have signed up to Stage 3 of the Around The Island in 10 Walks adventure, and what a great stage this is. YES, it’s a big one, 30km, so get an early night…’ I stop to re-read the message Walking Ibiza founder Toby Clarke has posted in our Stage [...]

"TRUST in the process..." I have to admit my hands are getting a little bit sweaty as I lean over the rocky ledge and stare into the gully below. ‘Do you want to go next?’ someone behind me asks, referring to the abseiling manoeuvre that every single one of us walkers has to complete to [...]

"The ADVENTURE begins..." Inspired by Walking Ibiza founder Toby Clarke’s now-famous jaunt around the entire coastline of Ibiza, the ‘Around The Island Adventure’ is one of our most iconic treks. And the weekend following our 10th Anniversary celebrations should have seen another group of brave walkers set off on the 12-day challenge, ten years after [...]
