Pictures from June 16 2015, 32km to Börln. 28th day of my Camino. Weather was wonderful. Views were amazing. There we cherries. I’m about 6 feet tall and I had my sticks, so I eat o lot of these fruits. Tasted awesome! In alberge in Börln I met for the first time German pilgrim. His name was Herman and he can’t speak English. I knew only a few words in German. Nevertheless we became friends instantly. I have no idea how it happened. Magic or what ???
A few photos from 29 day of my Camino in 2015. 37 km to Sommerfeld. Below there is a map and a few photos. First time I passed german highway. My german friend Herman was riding a bicycle and he rode the same distance as i walked. But it was because it was the end of his pilgrimage and he planed to go back home from Lipsk. Fortunately I forgot about my illness and except being extremely tired, I became healthy again. Vitamin C rules!
Some pictures from 30 day of my camino on June 13 2015. I’ve walked 29 km to Kleinliebenau. First time I crossed the big german City Leipzig, I had some little adventure there with charming german “frau”. City was nice. It was good to find some civilization :). I spent a night in a tiny alberge, I mean a little house, so little that I was unable to straighten up. Sorry for a little mess on the picture. It happens
On 31 day of my Camino I turned from the main route cause in Mücheln I could find a place to sleep at evangelical parish. In Merseburg there was kind of parade. They started to shoot, so for a moment I was wandering if they starting something serious. But it was just a happy celebrations of holiday in the city.
Pictures from 32 day of my camino in 2015. Stage from Mücheln to Roßbach. I loved these fruits. Cherries are planted along Jacobsweg (german camino). I ate and ate. Probably much more than 1 kg. The taste was astounding. In Roßbach I had amazing meeting with german protestants. But there is no place to write about it.
My treasures in Germany – cherry trees. On 33 day of my Camino I’ve walked 45 km to Stedten am Ettersberg. At the end I felt truly exhausted. At some point I met an ostrich. We looked each other deep into the eyes but we didn’t fought. You can see him on the pictures below.
34 day, 33 km to Frienstedt, 24 pictures. I walked through Erfurt, nice, modern german city. I wanted to stay there. For a week, for a month, maybe half a year. To drink beer, to enjoy the sun… But – pilgrimage.
