Last updated on 10/28/2020

The Via Coloniensis starts in Cologne or Bonn and leads through the Eifel and Trier to Schengen. It is part of the network of routes of the Camino de Santiago (The Way of Saint James). As multiple routes through Germany join throughout this way, it is connecting most of the german pilgrim routes with the french routes. Once in France one could travel continue to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to join the French Way, the Camino Frances. One of the most popular routes of the ancient pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela.

Now no more tourist overnight stays in germany. And again, 2020 interferes in my attempt to bring body and mind back into a healthy rhythm.

In the last few weeks, I have been just exhausted. According to the first sleep monitoring, my sleep is too “fragmented” to get any results, e.g. possible diagnosis of sleep apnoea. During the day I have difficulty staying awake for longer periods. After breakfast, tiredness forces me to my knees, and I usually cannot get up from the sofa until dinner…. I had the hope that through this journey I could force body and mind back into a healthy rhythm. I guess, now I will probably only be able to do a few local hikes…
