Grief is a weird intangible thing to me. Heartache due to love or what I had mistaken in the past for it anyways, that I know, it feels familiar. An acute pain, difficulties breathing, the sinking sensation that reduces your own world to that sole focus, the absence or...

Day 1 - Cork - Cobh - Carrigaline - 24km

On embarque sur le Pont-Aven de Brittany Ferries. Impressionnant et ravis d'être dessus sachant les péripéties pour y arriver. Je vous raconte pas. ... Allez si en bref. Controle technique matin, test de chargement, aller à Renn...

Premier jour de woofing. C’est parti.  Je suis en Bretagne, à la frontière avec la Normandie, pas loin du Mont Saint-Michel.

Boy oh boy, it’s been a long way to today, 30 years and some to be precise. What a journey! And now that I have to reflect, now that I have time to look back and forward, I start to finally break free of this 30 years long trail of stuff, experiences, emotions, feeling...

5 weeks have gone by and what’s up? I have learned a lot of things yet so few that I know now that I didn’t know before. Is any of it useful? Some yes, some less, some life-changing, some self-evident. It is like becoming aware in a fraction of a second that we all do...
