Blog: Travelling alone

Since 2020 I stopped trail running and running in general. But I kept on journeying, but went inwards. This time, expressing myself, writing and I will be sharing this here.
Since 2018 I also travel alone, barefoot and running. Discovering new trails and applying all I have learned to myself in a different way. I peaked in January 2020 with my race over the glens!

Everything is beautiful and I feel a drift

January 2023:
 
Let me paint you a picture.
A small stream is meandering down a mountain slope and a little log is a drift in it. It is floating and following the turns and twists. The nature is beautiful, grassy slopes and big boulders. The log hits one of these big boulders and starts to spin around. Read more »

June 2023:

Wandering around in my newly created world, I lost my bearings. No that’s not quite right, I still have my “North star” to keep me on track in my newly created world.
But the track I am following is really overgrown with plants and eroded away at some places, Read more »

Life’s nudges, gems and miracles

April 2023:
 
Being open for life’s nudges.
Being open for life’s gems.
Being open for life’s miracles.
I thought I was, but there was still un underground train of thought urging me on to organize my life.
Now that this stream has come to light I have been able to dam it and it is evaporating and seeping into the ground. Read more »

Dancing between worlds

February 2023:
 
How do you dance between worlds …
How do you dance …
Between what worlds … might be questions that come up.
My dance between worlds is my dance between “my reality” and the “reality of the horse”.
Yes, I am an equine bodyworker, Read more »

I write because…

January 2023:
 
I write because…
I write because it is new and adventurous. I write because I love to share.
I write because I love to educate. I write because I love to tell a story.
Because, because,  because … no words. So to write I need words. Read more »

Not alone, not anymore, making friends, seeking friends, not alone anymore.
New country, new customs, new people, new habits, new me.
Transforming, not being alone anymore, being with friends, knowing friends, Read more »
