"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." - Mark Twain
This blog is as much about the physical journey on the hiking trails that I do as it is about the inner spiritual journey I am on.
Walking is good for the body, mind and soul.
As a student I went backpacking in South Africa and saw my first snow in the Drakensberg Mountains. I bought my first down sleeping bag, hiking boots and framed backpack. It was so exciting. On my first trip we even slept in caves!
I just came back from Spain where I did 155 km of the Camino Frances pilgrimage in October 2018. I started this blog during the preparation stages for the Camino.
Post – Camino my goal is to walk the whole length of the Bruce Trail in stages and also to use walking as an exercise to keep me healthy. I go on day hikes and take pictures on the Bruce Trail. Running along the Niagara Escarpment in southern Ontario from Niagara to Tobermory, the Bruce Trail spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of associated side trails.
I am a pilgrim on this journey called Life. “Thy will be done” is my mantra, since I believe I am a vessel that God can use to spread Light and Love. I believe that the Holy Spirit directs my life. “Let go and Let God” is my every day goal. Walking on water so to speak.
I identify with keeping our Earth a viable place to live for all people. I believe that taking responsibility for my own consumer habits is a good first step. I try to buy less in general, ride share and also use the least amount of plastic, water and electricity and as possible.
