I can’t seem to get my gear right. Like my life, it’s an ongoing experiment.
Our 4.5-month winter walking break is over. It’s time to pick up our backpacks and move forward again. Sigh.
It’s with a bit of a heavy heart that we do that.

Un cop caminades Tailàndia, Birmània, Bangladesh, Índia, Pamir, Tadjikistan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Azerbaidjan i Geòrgia amb aproximadament gairebé uns 9.900 quilòmetres als peus, ara ens endinsem a Turquia.
For those of you counting, we have walked Thailand, Burma, Bangladesh, India, Pamir, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Azerbaijan and, now, Georgia. With about almost 9,900 kilometers on our feet, we cross into Turkey.

Un cop caminades Tailàndia, Birmània, Bangladesh, Índia, Pamir, Tadjikistan, Uzbekistan, Iran i Azerbaidjan amb aproximadament uns 9.300 quilòmetres als peus, ara ens endinsem a Geòrgia.
For those of you counting, we have walked Thailand, Burma, Bangladesh, India, Pamir, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Iran and, now, Azerbaijan. With about 9,300 kilometers on our feet, we cross into Georgia.
We let our feet soak for a couple of seconds in the cool, shallow pool of water. We step onto the sticky plastic mats, doing our best to ignore the clinking sounds of metal plates being tossed into the wash buckets in the busy community kitchen. We cross the elaborate archway, and stand on the hard marble floor. Our eyes are fixed on our prize: the Golden Temple.
For Sikhs, the Amritsar temple is the equivalent of the Christian’s Rome and the Muslim’s Mecca. Devotees from around the world come to bask in its welcoming glow. For me, this special place marks my official finish line for our walk in India.
Aquesta és una reflexió sobre una decisió que hem hagut de prendre i que sobretot a mi, Lluís, m’ha fet molt de mal.
Today marks six weeks after my hysterectomy. Here is a glimpse into how my healing has gone so far.
We had an open and public Questions and Answers session some weeks ago and we would like to publish it in this entry post.
Why do we want to publish it? Because we think some of you who are kindly following our adventure-project-trip might find some of the questions and some answers useful or interesting. If you have been following us, you might know some answers already, but we think there were some interesting questions worth publishing. So here we go, this was the open Q&A. We hope you like it !
I have three new walking buddies.
Meet Saha, Ishi and Bal—the crew helping me getting me through the next few months.
Our time in Tajikistan has come to a close. It has been an amazing 45 days, and it will be hard to top what we found here. It is a place of natural beauty and kind people.
But, we walk onwards, and Uzbekistan is next on the list. We’re looking forward to what another country along the ancient Silk Road will be like.
