Wacky-Walking: Prologue

Autor: . Abgelegt unter Allgemein,English,Thus

My tour, of course, is a big project. So, I needed to get inspired by other big projects.

Since the Tour de France usually doesn’t start with a regular full day, I didn’t want to do that either.

So, the prologue went from my home to my parents’ house about 8km east.It was raining a lot that day and so I get to try the impermeability off my clothing and gear. All worked well and I arrived there safely.

The highlights of the stage were:

  • I only had to turn for the first time after 7.5 km
  • I enjoyed being faster than the cars in the traffic jam piling up at one construction site.
  • It felt funny walking a path that I know very well with full gear and the big backpack.

Wacky-Walking: by foot from Munich towards Frankfurt

Autor: . Abgelegt unter Allgemein,English,Thus

The backpack is ready and packed…

When I was talking about my summer vacation plans, I got two reactions: some people thought that this was mainstream nowadays and a fully trending activity, some people told me, that this seems like a crazy idea and who would ever think of an activity like that.

To me, getting both of those reactions to the same idea, seems like an indication of quality. 😉

Several friends of mine had talked greatly about their experiences on the Camino de Santiago and since Jan had done a replacement for his vacation by hiking through Bavaria, I started making a plan of following in their footsteps without following in their footsteps.

Since we have a family gathering close to Frankfurt at the end of August, I decided to walk there from Munich.

I will take you guys on my tour and blog here about the individual milestones and about general reflections I have while walking.

It is important to me to note, that:

  • It’s not about the kilometers, but about the experience. So, it doesn’t really matter if I make it all the way there by foot or if I have to take some other forms of transportation in between or in the end;
  • It is supposed to be vacation, so I still want to enjoy the days and not just work out;
  • I will try to limit my communication with others to a minimum and see what comes up when I talk to myself for several days in a row.
