Remembrance day 1

11th of november Today was cold, very windy with a mixture of rain, sleet and snow. I decided to stay where I was. Slept, drank and ate a lot, and then slept some more. Wouldn’t you know, the place I am staying has HBO on TV, so I saw the […]

Tired 1

For 10th of november It’s getting to the point now, where I have to portion out my energy for the remainder of the walk. Some days it feels like I can walk hard endlessly, but other days my body kindly asks me to slow down a little. Today was such […]

Grinding away the kilometres 1

Started walking early, and for once was finished before sunset. I hopped on a bus quite spontaneously without really knowing where it was going. Got to a large hotel and have had an evening eating good food, taking my first bath in a very long time and relaxing. Fantastic weather […]

Strond cold wind from North

No rain this morning, and although I thought there would be a lot less dust, I was wrong. I have chunks of dust in both eyes, and am patiently trying to dislodge it without losing my contact lenses. It was very windy from the word go, and it felt like […]

Rain in abundance 1

The forecast said rain all day long. There was no sign of it when I started walking this morning. I asked a guy if he thought there would be rain, and he said yes – but just a small drizzle he had read on the net. That was good news […]

Back on track

Got back to the route today at noon. Surprisingly warm weather, and a wind from behind. The forecast says rain all day tomorrow. I’ll wait until tomorrow to see what to do. If it is close to zero and raining heavily, I’ll wait a day for better weather. The observant […]

In Shenyang for one day 2

The going has been very good lately, as has the weather. After two weeks of walking, I decided to take a breather in Shenyang. Tomorrow morning I head back to Liaozhong which is where I left the route. Walking pretty long distances for a long time is tiring. I’m noticing […]

Road walking 1

A long days walk today. Got off to a slightly late start. Lots of local fog in the morning that cleared up by noon. The area I am walking in has lots and lots of rivers and ditches going in different directions. There are large rivers that are not marked […]

Flat landscape 1

There was dense fog the first couple of hours of walking today. Then the sun broke through and warmed up things. I was excited to reach a part of the route where there probably was some Great Wall. I got there, and first followed a ditch in the landscape. There […]

Body back to normal hopefully

First a big round of applause to my brother Jon! He has been helping me on this walk from the very start. In fact we walked the first weeks together in the desert during the early summer last year. Since then Jon has made sure that the GPS point I […]
