Next Stop: Paradise

After this 3 days the country was not the same for me as before. Nevertheless I felt too much respect of this new habitat and culture to continue walking. So I changed the place. Rafael referred me to Eric and his Family. Eric, from Miami, who has been living 4 years in Brazil, received me […]

The New World (Rio De Janeiro)

Rafael left in the morning. My nervousness made me ask him if the area is safe and he affirmed that it is. “Sometimes you can hear gunshots but it shouldn’t scare one off”. “Fair enough”… After some hours I decided to make my first steps on Brasilian ground and dared to walk to the supermarket […]

Taxi! (Rio De Janero)

Good Bye Europe (Fatima – Lisbon)

Mountains, Madhouses and English-lessons (Pontevedra-Valencia)

Original Date of Post | February 26, 2009 | The sun followed us the next days. Between Pontevedra and Arcade we laid down on grass-fields multiple times, just to rest and enjoy the sunlight.

Dark days (Finisterre-Pontevedra)

Original Date of Post | February 14, 2009 | Compostellas, Fisterranas and Muxianas, 2 each, in total 6 certificates which are the symbols for a “completed way”. A completed Camino De Santiago. One of a lot of things I learned on the way until here is, that completing the outer way does not really count […]

The Coast Of Death (Santiago de Compostela – Muxìa)

Lets get a bit more detailed. In Santiago de Compostela, my soulmate Janina joined me. We rested 2 days in Santiago de Compostela and eventually started the walk, with a budget of 50 Euros, towards Finisterre, also known as “the end of the world”. At the end of the day we arrived in Negreira and […]
