A Fiest to the Eyes

applesPlucking an apple from the next tree, sitting down on the side of the road and having a refreshing snack in the middle of an amazing landscape – life cannot get any better. And trees laden with fruits of all colors is the lasting impression I got from the walk from Riggisberg to Heitenried. Perfect setting for finding excuses to make a stop every few minutes!

Finally alone…


The really nice thing after walking out of Santiago is actually that there are many less folks on the road than before. All the 100km pilgrims don’t continue walking and therefore it’s even possible to be on the road totally alone for long amounts of time. And let me tell you: Negreira is cool! Continue reading
