    Petri Heil :D

    September 15, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Entspannung und Sport- und Angeltag 🌟🌈🐟🏓

    „Petri Heil!“ ist die traditionelle Grußformel der Fischer und Angler. Sie besteht aus dem lateinischen Genitiv des Namens Petrus und dem Wunsch „Heil!“ Der Grüßende wünscht dem Gegrüßten den Fangerfolg des Fischers Petrus, wie er in den biblischen Fischzugsgeschichten Lukas und Johannes erzählt wird.

    Als Antwort erwidert man im Normalfall ebenfalls mit „Petri Heil“. Lediglich im Fall eines Beuteerfolgs antwortet man mit „Petri Dank“.


    Gefangen haben wir Nichts aber Spaß hat's gemacht...und eine Erfahrung in Geduld, denn Angeln braucht viiiieeeeeel Zeit 🙄😄😜

    86. Etappe: Time to celebrate!

    October 2, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute gibts ne Menge zu feiern: George hat seine letzte Etappe gemeistert, Lucille ihren ersten freien Tag nach 3 Wochen genossen, ich habe Hugh aus Kent getroffen (Ellis und Hans werden sich erinnern!), der heute auch seinen letzten Camino-Tag hat, ich bin schon 3 Monate unterwegs und habe heute die 2.000 km-Marke geknackt 🎉🎉🎉
    Und deshalb lassen wir heute Abend die Küche Küche sein und gehen ins Restaurant! Denn: Wir sind heute alle in Limoges angekommen, die wohl größte Stadt auf meiner französischen Camino-Route.
    Der Tag startete erst einmal verdammt kalt, bei nur 1 Grad 🙈 Aber die Sonne schien und so wurde es schnell warm. Bevor es in die Großstadt ging, wurde es noch einmal malerisch: ich unterquerte ein Viadukt, durchquerte liebevoll restaurarierte Dörfer und genoss so manch tollen Ausblick.

    85. Etappe: Saint-Leonard-de-Noblat

    October 1, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Heute gabs wieder 31 km 🎉
    Die Island-Luft hat auch Frankreich erreicht, so dass das Thermometer heute kaum über 10 Grad kletterte. Gut, dass ich meine leichte Daunenjacke jetzt schon dabei habe 😅 Ein bisschen Regen gab es auch, aber zum Glück nur zu Beginn.
    Die letzten 10 km bin ich allein gewandert, da sich Lucille heute nicht so gut fühlte und den Rest besser mit dem Taxi fuhr. Eine gute Entscheidung, denn der Arzt hat ihr ein wenig Ruhe verordnet, so dass sie morgen und übermorgen aussetzt. Wir werden uns dennoch in Limoges sehen, da sie meinen Fußweg von 22 km morgen mit dem Bus meistern wird.Read more

    87. Etappe: Flavignac

    October 3, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Nach dem leckeren indischen Essen gestern Abend, verabschiedete ich mich heute Morgen von George und startete erst einmal allein in diese Etappe. Es dauerte eine ganze Weile bis ich Limoges hinter mir lasse konnte. In Aixe-sur-Vienne traf ich dann wieder Lucille zum Picknick und wir setzen den restlichen weg gemeinsam fort.
    Das kleine Refuge municipal teilen wir uns heute mit einem Belgier, der gerade wieder auf dem Rückweg ist. Er hat schon über 4.000 km zurückgelegt und ist seit Februar unterwegs! Wow!

    Mood: Tired but satisfied

    The landscape today was beautiful and the Cathedral of Limoges is just stunning (Which makes the Limousin my favourite part of this journey yet). As my mum said, Limoges is another milestone, which I am proud to reach. I was going to post a little story, but I met a couple from Bornerbroek (very near to where my dad was born).Read more

    Why make it hard?

    I'd been going over my planning for the next few days a number of times when Richard asked me: "Why do you make it so hard for yourself?" The constant pressure to hit a certain daily mileage seemed a bad thing to him.
    I read the same thing on a santiago website, to not pressure yourself too much on time so you can enjoy the camino to its fullest.
    But of course I have my own view, I like the physical challenge and I'm not even sure why. Probably because I want it to be hard and I want to feel like I've really achieved something at the end of the day. I mentioned this earlier, it seems like a certain level of suffering is imperative to the camino.
    Somehow this challenge keeps me going and prevents my camino from becoming routine and even a bit boring. And so today, I hit a new high on my daily mileage (33.5km) and it feels good.
    I just hope it still feels good tomorrow...

    In case you're wondering what that misty picture is of... Well that was the summit of my first climb, bit unlucky with the weather. It wasn't that hard though and I enjoyed walking alone again. Enough thoughts to keep this busy mind company!

    Day 26: Limoges - Flavignac

    September 7, 2016 in France ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    Distance: 28. 4k (610.4/1259.9)
    Weather: 32C, Very sunny and hot
    Mood: I so got that 28k!
    Blisters: 0
    Staying at: Camping Saint-Fortunat (I have not paid yet...)

    I am sitting at the lake of Saint Fortune as the night falls. A few last day trippers are making their way home, but I am still here with no plans, but a bottle of wine and the expectation of a starry night. It's so peaceful now that most people are gone and the screams of children playing have made way for crickets, birds and the quiet sounds of the lake. I am content, I am peaceful, I am grateful and yes, maybe I am a little under the influence...
    Maybe it's a little more comfortable if I put my right leg down... Ouch maybe it's not, there are loads of nettles here!
    It's so nice when you have no other worries on your mind but where you'll sleep and what you'll eat. This is when I feel I can really enjoyed the small things (that really are big) in life. And... Isn't there a Dutch things about the small things that make you happy in the end?

    La Rochelle-day 2

    February 18, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Another stellar day in La Rochelle! Corinne gave me the address to her aunt and uncles place to go and say hello. I walked the beautiful park where they had a small zoo and then the beach. I arrived at the Villa Marcotte where Corinne's family lives and rang the bell. With my best French I introduced myself to Michel and told him I came by to say hello and take a couple of photos for Corinne. He said Brigitte was not home and so I shook his hand and left. Went to the beach and enjoyed the sunshine and found a fossilized rock. Found a couple of nice shells to take with me. Walked through town in search of new shoes and found a place with great sales. Bought myself a new pair of fancy running shoes with memory foam for €23.60 (60% discount). Bought myself some duck pate and beautiful baguette made from corn a beer and had my lunch back at the room. Heading to Limoges tomorrow and the bus and train schedules were crazy long and more than I wanted to pay. I booked myself into a blablacar ride, which here in Europe is great because it is private car rides for cheap and then you get to see the countryside. I have a direct trip of 3 hours booked for €17 euros. Christy and I used this from Italy to Budapest for €15 each and it was a 5.5 hour drive. Great optional way to get around!Read more

    February 19, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Caught a blablacar ride this morning with Stephanie and two other girls to Limoges. The ride went quick and I got to see the beautiful country side. It's a nice way to travel. Stephanie spoke French so fast I could only get every fourth word but managed to parlez with her and the other girls. I really had to pay attention and by the time my trip was done my brains were a bit scrambled. I looked around the city for 4 hours and think I've seen everything. It has a really weird vibe here. It is again Sunday and everything is closed including the food stores. Always have to make sure I get groceries for Saturday shopping. Saw the lovely gardens and the city has at least 7 bridges I passed today along the river walk. The Pont de Etienne us where the local women used to wash the linens if the bourgeoisie women until the mid 19th century. Limoges is also world renowned for their porcelain and design. I saw some beautiful pieces in the shop windows today.Read more
