Woman's 1,000 mile journey around Wales with donkey

Hannah and Chico the donkey have to mainly stick to grass on their route

Hannah Engelkamp, from Aberystwyth, wanted to walk right around Wales, but didn't want to do it alone - so she bought a donkey to help her meet the challenge.

"The Wales Coastal Path opened last year - last May - so that felt like a bit of a gauntlet" says Hannah.

"About a month later it occurred to me that if I took an animal with me, that would be a way of meeting people, someone to carry my bags and a companion for me, so that's how the story began to grow for me."

Hannah's partner Rhys has joined her for the current stage of the journey
