Talking about pilgrimage, I often refer to something beyond the physical journey of, for example, the Camino de Santiago. To me, the physical pilgrimage makes up just a tiny part of a larger journey.
Although many European countries are easing the restrictions, you might’ve decided to move your pilgrimage or long distance hike a little further into the future (as did I). Yes, it isn’t fun but the good thing is that now you’ll have more time to train! This is a refreshed version of an article I posted back in 2018, and it’ll revolve all around getting yourself ready to hike 20k a day (or more).
As I wrote something about my newfound journey to becoming a coach on Instagram, I guessed a little post about this joyous continuation of my personal pilgrimage was in order. So here it is!
Pilgrimages don’t have to last for weeks or months in order to have a great impact. A single day experience can be of great significance too! This certainly was the case with my one day pilgrimage on the Münchner Jakobsweg.
There I went. Carrying a tremendously heavy backpack, I closed the door behind me and faced the freezing cold on my way to Santiago. On the 1st of March it was already one year ago that I commenced my journey! The past months I’ve been looking back through a series of stories.
