SWEAT AND SOUR trip 2016 - Walking Portugal to Holland

Two times I had to give up in an early stage before finally continue this trip. Meaning I had to walk in a different season than planned.
Hot and Steamy weather in Portugal and Spain, BreakingBones in the Pyrenees and Walking along the Rolling Rhine towards the Lowlands of Holland.

RestLess-WalkMore! 2017

After the SweatAndSour Trip from Portugal to Holland the urge was coming to tip the North Cape. The trip was demanding with cold and harsh weather conditions. But in not even eleven months and 9000+ kilometer walking, I finished as a Happy Man.

Starting in Germany, the trip took me through Denmark, Sweden, the whole coast of Norway. To walk back along the Russian border in Finland, The Baltic States and Poland. Continuing my way west towards Holland.

The Demons of the North Cape were over!

CLOSING THE GAP 2018 - Recover

A few days before entering Holland while from Portugal my trailer went down..And ordering spare parts would take me to long. So I went home….

Walking up and down the North Cape I had started at the German/Denmark border in order to have a schedule I would be comfortable with…. So there was a gap to fill: Bonn to Flensburg. A few weeks walking in Germany and the short circuit was solved.

Bonn-Flensburg

 

KEEP THE WATER ON YOUR LEFT 2018

A winter trip along the Dikes in the north of Holland. No shelter only the Hauling wind to keep me company.

Walking dikes

 

BAD ROADS GOOD PEOPLE 2019

After my WAR, WalkAcrossRussia project was rejected I took an alternative. Walking the hinterlands of Tsjernobyl, the Carpathian mountains to continue along the river Dniester. Five months walking the Ukraine, Moldova and Romania. 4000 kilometer of Bad Roads and Good People.
