My favourite ROAD PHOTOS. Rather different then pretty.
2,000 miles solo. Never planned, but happened.
Which was good, otherwise I would probably never go. I'm happy I did. I don't like backpacking and tenting, I actually hate it. So I hiked like a trail runner, with ultralight backpack, no cooking, no camping. Just walking and sleeping, at the beginning gathering with other hikers and locals a lot, less at the end. Therefore the most no-sence question about AT is "how long does it take". By non-written rule AT hikers should use nick names. I was given the name "Brave". Hm, step by step I've got used to it.
Because my legs deserve it.
I started to enjoy getting myself from the point A to the point B by feet, to hike trails and to cycle roads. I don't enjoy driving, like I got used to until started to run, too many restrictions and limitations. I don't stay anymore in Zermatt***** either, I stay now wherever twilight catch me, right on my way. I pay a lot for doing that. Money is the smallest part of the bill.
