Camino – Day #3

As I opened my eyes early in the morning I felt energetic, optimistic and frisky. And couldn’t wait to start walking, with a headlight, because it was still dark outside. My mind slowly calmed down so I finally could enjoy walking through small villages, forests, farm fields and meadows.
Freedom and playfulness were markings of that day and I completely forgot about time and space. In the late afternoon I was aware that I already walked 39 km and it’s time to stop. A week later I realized that early morning adrenaline can be extremely obnoxious.

Thought: In nature and life there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences.

Camino – Day #2

Actually first day of walking. 7 hours of walking uphill calmed my soul because it was a familiar and homely feeling though tiring as it was »only« 25 km, but ^ 1390 m.

My mind was full of thoughts, ideas and plans during walking so I really don’t know if I was tired from thinking processes or because of physical activity.
At the top feeling of uneasy and tense came, cause misson for that day was acomplished. And what now? I have the whole day in front of me as it was 2 p.m. So many people around me, but all strangers. I needed the proximity of a known person as I was not in the mood for superficial debates.

Camino really takes care of everything … Slovenian guy crossed my path and brought food too 😉

Thought: He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.


@ Saint Jean Pied de Port – Roncesvalles

Camino – Day #1

Saint Jean Pied de Port was the beginning of my Camino Francés, 799 km long route of Camino de Santiago. Believe it or not, the journey began with fireworks. I took this as a good sign 😉.

Feelings: Doubtful & alone but also excited & curious.


Thought: Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!

Camino – Pre journey

I don’t believe in coincidences. But on the other hand, every single moment is a coincidence. The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways we are, in some ways we’re not.

That was my Camino… with so many answers that it’s time to find the right place for them.
My journey on the Camino lasted 26 days, from 15th to 9th of September 2018. I walked route called Camino Frances or The French way which begins at Saint Jean Pied de Port, south of France, and travels 500 miles through four of Spain’s 15 regions, ending at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain.

So I’ll go back and relive each day again.
