Two activities play a big part in the Wells’ life: starting each day with an early morning visit to a local beach (and a coffee) and trekking to wondrous and sometimes remote places. It is fitting, therefore, that they met at the beach, and Kim accepted Malcolm’s proposal of marriage at 5,240m while crossing the wondrous and remote Shuga La Pass in Tibet. Married in early 1994 Malcolm’s trekking company took them to many countries around the world like Nepal, Tibet, India (Rajasthan, Ladakh, Kashmir), Pyrenees, Reunion Island and Sabah (North Borneo). Trekking has continued as they both share a love of travel, photography and walking.
More recently, they have explored two more European pilgrim routes; one in France from Le Puy en Velay which links into the Camino de Santiago and the other in Italy known as the Via Francigena from the Swiss border to Rome. Currently in the process of completing two further books about their latest adventures, they hope to continue inspiring those who share their enthusiasm for walking.
