Another pilgrimage

In 3 weeks I will join Sarah Bachelard on a Pilgrimage along Tasmania’s Overland Track. In six days our small band will walk from Waldheim and Cradle Mountain south to icy Lake St Clair. Contemplative community leader Sarah will keep us in a “spirit of pilgrimage, attentive to the voice of the country and toContinue reading “Another pilgrimage”

Home in pandemic times

We live in pandemic times. There has been no Camino for me this year. The world has been in ‘lock-down’, we have been ‘sheltering in place’, the latter being a more inviting term for staying home from work and play. Many of my neighbours have discovered or rediscovered the small pleasures of home: planting aContinue reading “Home in pandemic times”

Kama Nature Reserve

I walked along Potato Point Beach on the South Coast of NSW and into the forest on the last week of my break from work. The Eurobodalla National Park comes right down toContinue reading “South Coast Interlude”

No Camino? – Hike at home!

COVID-19 shattered our plans to walk a section of the Camino from Santo Domingo de la Calzada to Leon. Both of us missed this section in our Camino Frances, Deb in 2018 and I in 2016. The urge to still walk this year pushed us to look closer to home – somewhere we could driveContinue reading “No Camino? – Hike at home!”
