Moving into a more mountainous area 2

Have had a very good walking day today. Although I got off to a late start after 9 am, I was able to cover a long distance. This is simply done by keeping a high speed, and stop having any breaks! Not something I can recommend in the long run. […]

Saving an old lady from freezing weather 4

I got back to the walking today and had high expectations of doing some good walking, but they were stopped by terrible weather. Early on it started raining hard, and at times it beltet down. It was very cold, and just on the verge of snowing. I was following a […]

Have bought tickets back home! 1

Yesterday I bought the tickets back home to Norway. A very strange feeling really. I am looking very much forward to coming home – no doubt about it.    At the same time though, I have a growing understanding (and perhaps fear) of how drastically my life is going to […]

In Norwegian media 4

I have taken a semi relaxing day today, washing lots of clothes, answering mails and then attending a net meeting in a Norwegian newspaper. You can read the questions and answer here. (They are in Norwegian) For dere i Norge – imorgen stiller jeg opp i NRK Nitimen. Tror det […]

Nettmøte i Nordre Aker budstikke 3

Update – I forgot to mention that I have now reached Fushun which is the town that Sue comes from. Sue is a Chinese living in Denmark, and has been helping me a lot with practical matters since she heard about this walk. Thanks for all your help Sue    🙂    […]

Started walking at 8 in the morning. Walked more or less non-stop. I sat down only once, at a small shop to eat some peanuts and drink. It was warmer than usual, and no wind. There are some aches and pains in this travel stained body now, but none that […]

Another long day 3

First a big thanks to my parents Jean and Tor. They have put up with quite a lot from me already. Like when I bought an extremely warm sleeping bag in my early teens and insisted on sleeping outside on the coldest nights in wintertime. After an initial ‘are you […]

Great Wall scouting 1

On this last stretch on the eastern most part of my route, the terrain is getting more mountainous. This is good news, as it means the chances of finding intact parts of the Great Wall are greater than the flat agricultural plains I have passed. The Great Wall in this […]

Heading for home 4

Today I walked as far north in the Liaoning loop as I had planned. As I made the turn southwards, I got the sun in my face – a nice change. Heading straight for the end point of the walk, I started thinking about Norway and all the people I […]

More snow

First a big thanks to my girlfriend Trude. She has been ever supportive of this project, and always offers encouragement and understanding when we speak, mail or text. Thanks for waiting for me all this time! She has also visited me in China twice on my trip, and apart from […]
