As I am getting closer to my goal, questions about the future start to pop up. Not just from me, but from people around me as well. I feel the need to think about who I will meet in Istanbul, or who I will not meet. I need to think about what I'll do after this. Do I...

The story of the angel

The story of the angel

Let me begin with the beginning.  I walked into Vészprem, a city which didn't really look appealing from the side which I came. A lot of high flats, big shops and factories inside the town. It was late in the afternoon, every step send flashes of pain from my toes...

Freedom

Freedom

Yesterday exactly 12 weeks ago I started walking. When I think back on those days I realise what a mess I was. I needed to walk to let go of all that happened and did it in a way that was a bit exaggerated. The website, paper, television, all not really necessary....
