curating my life

I was starting to feel a bit annoyed. The snow was nice: The dwarf beeches were nice: But sitting around at home, waiting for my Iranian letter of invitation wasn’t very nice. I’d get things done, sure. Taxes, invoices, photos, and whatnot. But it felt like being the curator of my own life.

stroll in the snow

Another day, another stroll in the park. We walked past the dwarf beeches… …and into the forest: It started snowing when we got there: And it was quite pretty: I filmed another Let’s Walk test video in which I talked about Trump’s recent attack on the free media: Oh, and I figured that my camera […]

Went back to the dwarf beeches. A few years earlier, the town had decided to put up a collection of photographs of them. They looked very nice, but I still don’t quite understand why they would place them right next to the actual trees: I mean, it’s not like Bad Nenndorf doesn’t have any other […]

times without mystery

Another walk, another Christmas tree: This time we saw two distant lights in the forest (probably just some other people walking their dogs): I started wondering about the absence of mystery on the planet we inhabit today. Everything seemed to have a reasonable explanation. There were no ghosts, no demons, no supernatural beings. Maybe I […]

There was a big old Christmas tree that had appeared in the park: Worshipping green trees in the midst of winter seems like an interesting absorption of pre-Christian customs (or religious practices) into Christianity. There was a Christmas band playing Christmas tunes under the Christmas tree. Feivel and I didn’t stay long, though. We were […]

a story in the dark

We went out a bit later than usual today: Still, we figured we’d extend our walk into the forest, so at some point it was almost completely dark (the winter sun sets early up here in the north): And when we got a little lost in the woods I remembered a story about a New […]

a flexible leash is still a leash

Same procedure as the day before: I got some office work done, then I grabbed the dog and went out for a walk. I took another Let’s Walk video on the way, because I needed to test my new equipment: Oh, and Feivel was loving the shit out of the forest: As you can see […]

head mount

Home. I replied to emails all day. It seems strange that, even though I have a disclaimer on my site telling people to keep it short when they decide to write me, I still get some long emails. Oh, and I wrote some invoices, and I did some stuff for my taxes. Then I went […]

drawing lines on maps

When I left Nürnberg, it was snowing again: I spent some time on the Autobahn: Then I rode a train. And another train. And then I was home. When I got there, I found a video on my hard drive that I had forgotten to post until now: Drawing lines on maps.

What’s up

Hey guys!

if you want to read up on the walk, you can click on News or just use the map above in order to navigate between posts. All 900+ entries are on there, starting with the first blog 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 extensive FAQ section (in three languages).

Another thing you can do is download the Google Earth file. It is broken down into daily tracks and shows some landmarks and a vast amount of photographs.

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

Meanwhile, I have returned to The Longest Way. Here's a little video about it:

Oh, and I keep a few social media accounts:

YouTube - I post videos from the road whenever I can
Twitter - Have been using this one a lot lately
Facebook - I mean I have one, but meh
Instagram - Trying to post daily blog updates here
