Paddy Dillon, author of many Cicerone walking and trekking guidebooks, seems to be walking and either researching new guides or updating old ones every day. But it's not often he has chance to chat to guidebook users such as James.

Paddy Dillon, author of many Cicerone walking and trekking guidebooks, seems to be walking and either researching new guides or updating old ones every day. But it's not often he has chance to chat to guidebook users such as James:

James looked up from his Cicerone guide and asked, 'Are you Paddy Dillon?'

James was walking the Yorkshire Wolds Way, followed by the Tabular Hills Walk, when he met the guidebook author, Paddy Dillon, at Levisham. Paddy was updating his route descriptions en route to Helmsley and the start of the Cleveland Way.

It turned out that James had used one of Paddy's guidebooks to walk the classic GR5 through the French Alps, and hopes to return to the Maritime Alps to walk the variant GR52. He also has his sights fixed on the formidable GR20 through Corsica. No stranger to long-distance trails, James has walked the Pennine Way, Hadrian's Wall Path (by Mark Richards), the Cotswolds Way and South Downs Way (by Kev Reynolds), most of the South West Coast Path and the GR221 through Mallorca.
