LIECHTENSTEIN. SI YO PUEDO.



In a week I will take the first steps on the through-hike I've longed for since I read the book Wild.

Why Liechtenstein? No big reason actually. Beauty, cool air, and mountains were on my list, as well as hotels for each night where my luggage would magically appear. Somehow the enticement that one could hike the entire country in 4-6 days was the final hook.


Of course the trip got delayed due to the pandemic, and then I was awful busy with Oaxaca, and then there was the Interstitial Lung Disease/arthritis/geezer descent. So I'm going while I can still stand upright.


Here's the plan (tempting fate with planning, yes?) --- here it is anyway: I will begin each day with a query, meditate on that query and hike all day with it in mind. At night I will write a bit and maybe I will send those journal entries and some pics out as blog posts. Sending you this alert will hopefully keep me accountable. On the other hand if I fall for shepherd in lederhosen, all bets are off.


First day's query

What experiences do I want so that I can die with few regrets?


Join me in this exploration and contemplation if you like. Let's talk about how to spend the last act of the play that is out lives!

Enjoy your adventure Janie. Nice way to get a feel for a place, by walking its trails and meeting its people. Stay well.

Same here Janie! Do it upright while we can!


As Santafeans, we fell for San Miguel de Allende. Now want to explore more Pueblos Magicos.

Also trying to put together a month or more tour BY TRAIN, through Europe. That should expand my mind!


Cheers!

Ok, Janie. I'll be here to keep you accountable. As to your first query, I never much thought about regret with regard to travel. There are alot of places I haven't been to. My short term goal is to take a trip around the world, southern hemisphere. So I would regret not doing this trip. But I guess I think of people when I hear the word regret. I would want to have no regret at the end of my life with regard to personal relationships.
