ISLAND LIFE: Walking Ibiza – The healing power of walking
“The hardest walk is walking alone but it is also the walk that makes you the strongest.”
Those moments where crazy ideas light up the whole of your being are actually real moments of enlightenment according to the law of attraction and a course in miracles.Even if you don’t believe in all that woo woo–the greatest ideas, inventions and enterprises have been borne from the most surprising of times.
The walk of all walks!
But how many of us actually follow through? Thankfully the desire to act upon such a flash of inspiration was too heady for Toby Clarke and in 2010, he set off with the cheerleading support of his gorgeously wonderful wife Belinda to trek around the coastline ofIbiza. With only €1 in his pocket and his puppy Cosmo for company, Toby’s faith that the Universe would provide was about to be tested and of course it was delivered many times over. Ibiza is an island drunk on natural beauty, its rugged coastlines have hidden secrets from centuries of marauding invaders and the ever-present ocean unfurls its majesty before you. Here the light is mythical, kissing the cerulean waters and sending tiny splatters of diamond like kisses all over the island.After 12 days of unmarked territory, dark moments opened up by the light of kindness from strangers,Toby made it through. Tales of his spirited journey travelled and soon he was leading groups of friends around Ibiza for monthly walks, which soon developed into weekly walks, which then eventually blossomed into Walking Ibiza.
Choosing from different walking experiences
Now, Toby has a team of highly qualified walking instructors who are just as passionate about sharing the Islands fantastical treasures. You can choose from a plethora of different walks; sunset kayaking, full moon walks, exploring caves and tunnels and family walks. Whilst some of these may feel more like hikes and have varying levels of fitness, the main ethos is that they are accessible. Warm and easy to talk to, any of the team is always on hand to discuss and support you through the experiences.
