My aged companion, Crisp, left me a note saying she was taking a break for a week and I’d have to fend for myself. I went back to bed having noticed her suitcase was gone.
What was I to do I thought? She’d left a brochure on the dresser.
It was headed “Country Walks” and detailed walks in the local area. As I knew Crisp was a woman of her word, I decided to make the best of the bad situation I found myself in.
I estimated there were seven days in a week so I needed seven things to do during my isolation.
Walk one was called ‘Uphill to Nowhere’ so I decided as I didn’t know where I might go Nowhere was as good as being Somewhere. Oddly enough the second walk on the list was just that, ‘Downhill to Somewhere’.

Love it, Michael.
And well-chosen destinations for, though no longer marked on Ordnance Survey maps there once was a small hamlet called Nowhere just over this hill (there were two in Norfolk, one still exists) and beyond the village of Upton (at the back of me as I took this photo) is where I took the photo I used for Road to Nowhere.
You know nothing surprises me about where you live.
Yep, the only place in the world to have two Nowheres!
Do people say my nowhere is bigger than your nowhere?
Probably. But I want to know where Nowhere’s gone now it’s no longer on the map. 🙂
Well obviously somewhere 😄
But that’s the oddity. There isn’t a Somewhere marked on the maps.
Probably caught between ‘Could be’ and ‘May be’.
Ah, never thought of that 🙂
