Royal Marine Veteran taking on the incredible challenge of walking the UK… Twice… Back-to-Back!

England, Wales & Scotland… A 12,000-mile journey.

Way back in June 2020 I received a message from a friend that was to change my life.

Three weeks later I quit my job, left the room I had in a flat and stepped on out for a walk…

Paul Harris

The Warrior Walker

Paul’s incredible journey began in a unique and unexpected way. After returning from Thailand, where he had been working as a kindergarden teacher, Paul faced a setback when his visa did not get renewed. It was during this challenging time that he received a text message from a friend that would change the course of his life.

With that single text message as the catalyst, Paul’s journey as “The Warrior Walker” was born. He embraced the idea of walking around the UK with open arms, seeing it as a chance to not only challenge himself physically and mentally but also to immerse himself in the beauty and stories of the land he called home.

As he walked the paths and trails, Paul encountered kind-hearted individuals who welcomed him with open arms, offering their support and guidance. The connections he forged with these amazing people reinforced his belief in the power of humans and the impact that a single conversation or act of kindness can have on someone’s life.

Through his Instagram, Paul shares not only his remarkable walks and the stories of those he meets along the way but also the valuable life lessons he has learned reminding us all of the strength and resilience within us.
