On my way along the portugues coast

Dear friends, After walking the Camino Frances in the winter of 2019/20 – I am on my way again. This time on the portugues camino, all the way to Santiago de Compostela, Finisterre, Muxia and back to Santiago. This pilgrimage has been on my list for quite some time and now is the momet to walk it.

That which gets in the way – Is the way

You see, this keeps happening to me, just as much as a hurtful foot or an aching hip. Even my mind wanted to not accept this at first and I did realise that, noticed the rejection of something beautiful just as much as I would probably reject some pain at first. Today...

When Play brings real emotions to the surface

Sunset in Praia Baleal

The sun got lower and lower and bathed the air, the sea, the houses and rocks in its amazing colours. My bus left this morning from Lisbon to Peniche. A friend of mine, I worked with at the ImpacTrip Project in Lisbon invited me to join her at her grandparent's place....

I love Portugal

It has been a gorgeous day with a lot of sunshine. I walked up and down, got lost and found my way again. The second day in Lisbon and I realise - I love Portugal. I have slept like a baby, and even though my windows have been open, the city noise was hardly...

Touch down Lisbon

What a wonderful day it has become. I almost did not believe anymore, that I would actually make it to Portugal.Touch down Lisbon. What a wonderful day it has become. I almost did not believe anymore, that I would actually make it to Portugal. 48 hours before my...
