Walked Kms: 360/ Total kms: 4500

Hello eveybody !   It's been a while and plenty of things happened to us since Ankara. Plenty. I'm now ın Kalataş, close to Adana. Istanbul was a wonderful experience, and the beginning of my reading of the Qu'ran. I have awful lots of things to read, to learn: Turkısh, Mevlana Rumi - I'm writing a book on our story wıth Mohammed - He gave me the tıtle (whıch could'nt have been better) "Cosmic Romantics". I'll wrıte ıt in French and ın Englısh ( Romances Cosmıques, donc). I have a good feelıng about it. Now ın Karataş, closest... [Lire la suite]

CON-STAN-TI-NOPOLIS !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OQ_hQXRRMA As promised, I am in Istanbul ! And Ahmed is looking over my shoulder. Ahmed is a great guy we met with his friends, back to the association they made their studies in: http://www.safavakfi.org/default.asp Great thing they do... We discovered this association first by meeting a Rumi mosquee and... Long story. We were wandering around the channel before the Bosphorus, and then we stepped on what seemed to be a garden. We went into it, and were welcomed by an... [Lire la suite]

Great moment of doubt. Athenes is wonderful, and I found a bunch of anarchists with whom I've been able to understand a bit of what's happening here. I've never seen anything quite like this before... The "communists" protecting the parliament from the anarchist's molotovs... The civil war before any actual class struggle. It seems to me that none of those self-assumed leaders of revolution actually mean anything else that childish rioting... With a bit of stalinism, for the "communists" - who're orthodox christians as well, here...... [Lire la suite]

Talking to you from Albania ! Here come some more vids - everything is going on perfecly. This one is ugly but gives a glimpse of the mood at the moment we arrived like conquerants at the Biennale: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B71aU4BeMwU&feature=related And in this one, you can see... My folded matress on the top of my bag ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BehML40Yfpg&feature=related And this one is a very good vid not related to me: (how's it possible ?) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S880UldxB1o&feature=related...

Yeepee ! Back in Venezia, for a few days. It's been quite a trip since the last message, and this is me writing in a fast-food (you'll find me where WiFi is): Looks like I'm happy, heh ? That's because I am ! ^^ How not to be, in Venice... So this is as well the day I reveal my plans to everyone... Tonight as it's going I'll probably be sleeping in a lost park in the popular quarters "de la serenissima" ! Your kingdom, Charlie, if you read this... Normally, it should'nt happen, because I never go in town if I plan to sleep in my... [Lire la suite]

Kms walked: 70 / Total Kms: 90

I deliver this message because I changed my mind for a few things. First of all, I won't be walking all along. My bag must be 30 kgs heavy, without all the stuff I carry on with me; camera, foodbag, fishstick... I did a lot of hard treks, but three days of this one had me convinced I can't do more. My bag is well attached and I've got good shoes, but only one day of this hell gave me the biggest blisters I've ever seen - two days more and I knew I would have to hitchhike or give it up. I reached my maximum in those three days - and... [Lire la suite]

If you read this...

If you read this, it means I reached the italian border. And it also means that you, my parents, deserve some further explanation. I'm going to Antarctica on foot. This is something I made up my mind to three months ago. I don't want to die there, I don't want to die at all, and if things go wrong, I'll be back. For sure, all this roleplaying thing is involved, Mum and Dad. But that's not all. I always wanted to go. To go. And this is the big go. I don't hate you, I don't despise you, and, as you're already aware of, my... [Lire la suite]
