It gets a bit boring to hear yet again how awful Boogie is but there is also something charming about the inner journey the author travels.

This book was fab because of the humour and for Mark's honesty about the people he met along the way and the things he encountered. Again, from having no idea how to skull an ancient skiff, he soon settles into the routine of raising with the dawn (or some time in the morning), skulling gently for a few miles and whiling away his time chatting to lock-keepers and studying the wildlife.

This wouldn't make much of a traveller's guide but, what he does do and say is easy-going, well phrased and gently amusing. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. The humorous travel book we've been waiting for' DAILY MAIL) In BOOGIE UP THE RIVER, man and dog take to the water to trace the source of the Thames in a siff of the same vintage as Three Men in a Boat.

This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. It is now measured at 630 miles, though on this latest re-read, having now started to walk the Path myself, I notice much more how many buses, cars and other short-cuts he takes. It is said if you do the entire path, the total height climbed is four times the height of Everest, yet it is very accessible and there are plenty of characterful pubs close to the path at which to enjoy a well earned meal and a drink. I liked the part when Mark said by the end of it, all Boogie had was a headache and identity crisis! Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition.Not only does Mark Wallington's writing just reflect the mentality of every dog owner he gives such a rich characterisation to Boogie the dog that makes him just as relateable. It is no ‘how to’ guide and you will gain little, if any, insight into what is now part of the South West Coast Path. Gear talk: Pad-Pal, the world’s smallest and lightest electric pad inflator is getting smaller and lighter!

Mark Wallingtons travels with boogie are books that are very good to go back to after a read that has taken a lot of concentration and investment. It’s more about mark than boogie , that’s the only disappointing part about this book, I would like to have got my idea of the character of the dog.A light and amusing read, describing the walk of Mark and his borrowed dog Boogie around the South West Coast Path from Minehead to Poole Harbour. Their titanium Siphon has its faults, but these are mostly balanced out by simplicity, small size, light weight, robustness and performance.
