Walking the Talk

Starting probably in april I´ll be walking in Denmark.

I have planned on ´walking Norway Along´ (Norge på Langs) from the very north (Nordkapp) to the very south (Lindesnes) sometime later.

While wandering along I write poems, and I will publish them with pictures on this blog. Updates will hopefully appear regularly depending mostly on coverage.

I have previously hiked in Yosemite, California, in the Dogon country, Mali and along the pilgrim trip to Camino de Santiago. If anyone is interested in sponsoring or interviewing me about walking and poetry just peek-a-boo, it would be very good, please get in touch!   ( you can read more of my poems on https://www.facebook.com/lyrikkfoten  )
