Welcome to our blog. We hope you enjoy walking and driving with us.
Wet …. and …. Dusty …. Roads
This is us – Berto & Corna from sunny South Africa
We love the Lord, we love each other and we love being outdoors. We believe in keeping things simple and having a positive outlook on life.
We have walked a very long way (literally and figuratively speaking) and in the process made some big decisions that would have an effect on the rest of our lives …
- Camino Frances – Spain – 2017 (Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela – 729km)
- Portuguese Camino – Portugal & Spain – 2018 (Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela – 620km)
- South African Tankwa Camino – 2019 (Calvinia to Ceres in the Northern- & Western Cape Provinces – 256km) … this one was just for fun!
Lessons from the Camino:
Some days you will be walking in sunny weather and you will enjoy beautiful pathways and amazing scenery. And then … other days it might be raining, walkways will be filled with mud and your feet might be killing you – those days, won’t be so great (trust me, I know what I’m talking about 😉).
There will be many awe-inspiring moments, and in-between those days, you will experience dismal and downhearted periods and this … THIS is what LIFE is all about!
At the end of each day, we have created amazing opportunities and memories that would last a lifetime! It is what WE make of these situations and opportunities (good or bad) … it’s there to conquer and enjoy!
Who’s taking the pictures and who’s writing:
The photo’s on our blog are taken by both Berto and Corna (Berto being the one who is more comfortable with both camera and backpack at the same time) and Corna is the one behind the pen (or laptop).
Enjoy travelling with us and discovering new places – whether it’s on foot or by car (those amazing 4×4 trips) – we’re glad you’re here 🌸.
