Half time
Crete | Sabbatical | Tuscany

Half time

Beginning of March marks the half time of my Sabbatical. A good time to look back at the past months and think about what to come. Here are the four main topics that have been on my mind. Of course besides travel experience, which you can read in my other blog messages.

On the road again

For the past two weeks, including the Christmas holidays and new year’s Eve, we had rented a little house at Triopetra at the south coast. After a week or so we started to miss the vanlife – despite the hot showers, fully equipped kitchen and reasonably sized bed which the house featured.

Assisi

Arrived in Assisi yesterday after following the pilgrim’s path for some days. I booked a hotel room for 3 nights to have time to relax and explore. And find out what’s the next step in the journey.

After six hiking days, I arrived at Citta di Castello in Umbria. From here I will follow via francesco, which is a pilgrimage to Assisi, the home town of Saint Francis. So somewhat a combination of goal and journey. So I decided to take a day off to enjoy the medieval city.
