It’s been more than two years, and since then a lot of things are different. But first, here’s the Original Plan  from 2007:
As you might know from the video or from the blog, I did walk about one third of the initial way, from the first day  (my 26th birthday) until the downfall  about a year later. Then I stopped. I got a haircut and shaved off my beard, and I took a plane home.
I came up with a new plan: go back to university, get a degree, don’t think about walking for a while.
The place where I usually look at my books is here:

Sometimes I just watch TV though.
I compiled my pictures into a short video and posted it online . Ever since then I have been getting many emails, all of them very kind, mostly asking a number of questions that I seem to have left unanswered:
“Why did you walk?” / “Why did you stop?”
Well, the only thing I can say is that I have been pondering over these questions too…
There are some answers that I tried to come up with. They are more of a practical nature though:

Maybe we can find some wisdom within the travel stories of other people? I have tried to introduce some of the books that I’ve been reading:
Some people tell me that they want to do similar things: ride a bike through Africa, walk through Asia, or hitchhike around the Americas. Whatever.
I am not sure what to tell them, but I know one piece of advice:
It doesn’t matter what dream you choose to follow, as long as you have one. Go follow your dream, and laugh while you’re doing it!
