Joining me today is Robert Martineau. We’re talking about his new book Waypoints: A Journey on Foot, which was published in April 2021 by Jonathan Cape.
In his book, as you’ll hear us mention, Rob goes on a 1,000-mile walk through Ghana, Togo, and Benin. So we chat about his walk, escaping from a life of routine in a big city, the liberating and transformative potential of walking, about note-taking, and a lot more.
If anyone has been feeling stagnant lately, in work and life — haven’t we all during the pandemic — then Rob’s story might inspire you to stop waiting around for life to happen and to take charge.
