This post is about a rest day in Cakraz. It’s also about some pharmacy troubles and about my newfound love for the supermarket A101. The Kantian stayed for breakfast. Then he left because he had responsibilities. It wasn’t easy being a Kantian, especially not in 2021. I wore the Kantian’s jacket when we said goodbye. […]

between soup and tea

This is a post about some idle time spent between a restaurant and a tea house in Doganyurt. I am a creature of habit. I ended up spending three days in Doganyurt. And I went to the same restaurant every day. It probably had a name, I don’t know. What I do know is that […]

What’s up

Hey everyone!

if you want to read up on the walk, you can click on Blog or just use the map above in order to navigate between posts. All entries are on there, starting with the first post I ever made.

If you just want to get a general idea about the whole thing, you could refer to The Plan, and in case you have any specific questions, make sure to check out my FAQ section (in three languages).

Another thing you can do is download the Google Earth file. It is split into daily tracks and shows some landmarks and some photographs.

Or you could just go and read one of my books.
