More India trek ends at Calais

A man who planned to walk from Bristol to India without any money has quit – after getting as far as Calais. Mark Boyle, 28, who set out with only T-shirts, a bandage and sandals, hoped to rely on the kindness of strangers for food and lodging…
In his online diary at the start of his journey to Porbander, Gandhi’s birthplace, he said he was given two free dinners on his first evening away in Glastonbury. Later, he was joined in Dover by two companions, and the three managed to get to Calais.

But in one of his last entries, he wrote: “…not only did no one not speak the language, they had also seen us as just a bunch of freeloading backpackers…”


Gee. I wonder why they took that attitude. Maybe because they are freeloaders?
