I began Walking West after travelling to Madagascar in July 2000 (the lead-up to which was recorded in my first weblog, Seven Weeks to Madagascar). This first instalment covered my short visit to London afterwards, and my subsequent search for work and visas in San Francisco until October. You can read all about it here:
6/11/2000 - 6/17/2000
Note that, like most weblogs, entries are in reverse-chronological order within each week. To read them as a continuous narrative, start at the bottom of each page and work up.
When you're done, walk over to WW2 to follow my first months back in Australia, where I was based in Melbourne while looking for work in the UK.
