On October 1st 2013 I started walking.
The goal: to walk from North Italy to India. Did I make it?
The short answer is no! However, I spent 2 and a half years on the road, travelling by foot through Italy, Greece, Turkey, Georgia and Armenia.
When I set out, I thought it was the walking that was the most important thing. I’m on a journey, I told myself, and I felt like I was living in a dream, seeing the things that I have always wanted to. I was enjoying every moment.
However, along the way something changed for me…
Step by step, I realised that although I set out to walk, I began to discover how I want to live.
When I stopped walking, it was time for a change, to take a break and reflect on the wonderful, and often difficult steps I had taken. I didn’t realise at the time, but that was to be the end of the walking…
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
This is my journey…welcome to a taste of ancient routes!
