How it all started? With rain and snails. Couldn’t enter church it was too early… But I could enter this church in Autigny in the afternoon – looks great? Yes, only at first sight. After some minutes of me sitting there, a sound appears : “bzzzzzzzzzz” really loud. I started to investigate. It wasn’t obvious… Continue reading From snails to flies.
Tired. Sleeping in a tent for the second night I hope I can find a lovely place to stay for tomorrow. We are now some kilometers in front of Fribourg (the one in switzerland). It’s warm in the tent. My eyes were already shut multiple times. Buen Camino!
In the morning Daz and I had a super sugary breakfast. I threw in a lot of fuel. Before going over to Spiez I went for a short dip into lake thun. Set up the tent and had some polenta with local cheese. Went from Interlaken to 1 km before Wattenwil. Buen Camino!
Since I sewed the shell logo from the camino de santiago to the front of my pants people started to act differently. The mistake that I made was having the shell just on my backpack. So today literally so many (I think 3) people approached me and told me their stories of their camino. Arriving… Continue reading A small change with a big impact
Bürglen to Brienzwiler hostel – a short way to recuperate. During the short way I met the first pilgrims: Daniela and another Marcel that were recognizing/planning for a trip with a group. At Brienzwiler Ruth the hostel host gave me some ointment for me knee and the foot. Carina and Silke two other pilgrims joined… Continue reading A little slower please
Today I went from Ennetmoos to Bürglen. Well the highlight of today was this truly exceptional family that took care of me. With food and very interesting discussions! I think I need to elevate my legs a bit… Plus I need to charge the electronics. Good night.
Was fun to talk with sister Doris Maria in the morning. She gave me a lot of food for breakfast. Finally I managed to get rid off some books (weight). I also managed to cook the rest of the eggs I bought a long time ago. On the track I was sitting by myself on… Continue reading A sunny day
It was quite steep some people came by as I started going up and they told me :”oh this is going on for a while”. We laughed it off. Schwyz is crazy, I walked literally some meters and you see the next three churches and so on. They are everywhere… In my opinion big churches… Continue reading Boring – I guess this is part of the journey.
Wanted to sleep in the monastery but it was full, so I head over to the wonderful Hotel Sonne and enjoy my first bed here as well as great breakfast tomorrow. It’s great as a lot of my things including my sleeping bag are wet. So I laid them out in my single room to… Continue reading From Steg to Einsiedeln
It rained as I started at 7:00 and kept going until slightly after noon. I was very glad I had a poncho with me. Thank you for that present it saved my day. The cows seemed mesmerized by the red color. Maybe my dancing, singing and whistling helped as well. I found my sleeping spot… Continue reading Castle Ruin Schleichenrain to a fireplace after Hörnli
