" . . . so I was googling where I would end up if I walked 500 miles and then walked 500 more."
The sentence caught my attention as I was packing my lunch up to head back to my desk and immediately the above song started playing in my head.
"So where would you end up?" I asked my friend, curiosity getting the better of me.
"Barcelona or thereabouts, apparently," he replied with a shrug.
"I'm not sure how they would get back to Scotland though," he added. "They didn't really allow for that in the song."
"How about in the next chorus?" one of the other blokes suggested. "They walk another 1000 miles then. Maybe that was the return journey?"
"Hmmm." I stood up to leave. "Or perhaps they just waited until the song ended and then caught the next flight?"
