About Me

I used to live in a beautiful city - Riga, worked in a very cool media agency as a Head of Digital department, on evenings I walked with my lovely dog, drunk wine, listened jazz and had some deep or silly conversations with my soulmates. But then something happened.
I had a dream. A big one. To walk "El camino de Santiago" road starting from my home door. In the last 2 years on my and my travel mate 2 week vacations we have walked from Riga till Poland (Ustka). But then we decided to do it in one time, not devide the journey in many years.
The challenge is to hike till Portugal (Sagres). Now we are in Germany. The plan is to finish before Christmas, but you never know where and how the road will lead you, right?
9 month, 7 countries (Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal), 2 legs, 6500 km.
