Let me tell you first: I will walk, most of the time.
But, since I can not walk on water, I may need from time to time a ship to sail me forward. And possibly "hostile" sections to the next person must be done motorized.
But the plan is to create this "footpath of life", by walking. Doch der Plan ist die Strecke zu laufen. It is important to hold the connection to the earth. So no plane to cross the water or a desert.
I envision the general direction, but the detailed route is based on your suggestions / invitations.
If you have lost a loved one, then invite me to you - we shallplant together; a tree of memory. It will be marked with a plaque, bearing the name of the person, date of death and the words,
"Footpath of Life".
The coordinates of the location and a photo of the tree are entered on a online map, so everyone can virtually follow me, practically inreal time. This map will be used ultimately after the completion of the project to document the Footpath of Life. Everybody will be able to follow the said route. Photos will be also be taken and placed in a virtual gallery on Facebook or another social network. But all of this, only if you agree. If not, you and I will keep the secret.
Walking the next days from Frankfurt to Amsterdam. Of course, I do not have to walk a straight line to my destinations. So if you are within a 50 km circumferance on this track, sent me an invitation and I will be on my way.
Here you can read mor about how you will get your tree.
Of course not. However, I must eat, drink, sleep, shower, and sometimes wash clothes. So, I would be glad about offers for food and drink, a guest room, a barn or a garage as a roof over my head, for one night or as long as it takes to complete our planting.
If you can´t, I might find a solution. There is always one. Then,
I will head to the next destination. Unless you are in distress and need someone who helps you, then I'll stay until you get better.
Then I'll try to receive a place from the community or a church community. I will ask anyway. If there is a will, there will be a way and we will find a small place ....
I hope I can win sponsors. Trees and plaques can be
offered by gardeners, residents, carpenters or
repairmen whom I contact in advance, or when I
am on location.. If that is not possible, I hope to have
enough donations to enable us to purchase one in a
shop. Of course, you can also offer to buy those things
- that's our contribution to the Footpath of Life.
I am still at the beginning phase, but I am sure I can
handle it if everything will work out and I realize there
is still so much to do.. I hope to realize a crowdfunding
project and to collect some donations as starting
I also hope to work a bit in the meantime -.
Companies can book lectures on motivation, social media and so on.(This is what I am usually doing for living). Or. I mow your lawn :-)
In addition, I hope to be able to generate advertising revenue, for example on YouTube, so I can pay my health insurance which is required while traveling.. Alone for this reason, I need many fans and channel subscribers..
These are the reasons why I am starting now, 1.5 years in advance - to spread the word. Sponsors are more easy to get if they see that there are many, many people interested in what I am doing and that I already have followers and fans
As already mentioned, I need sponsors and press (do you know who knows someone?) Above all I need you as fans on Facebook, followers on Twitter, readers of my blog, viewers for my YouTube channel and friends on Pinterest or Instagram. The more people I reach, the more likely is that we can achieve this objective, which will continue for several years.
You have no possibility to support me? You've not lost anybody you loved? I'm 100% sure that you know someone who knows someone. Therefore, I request you with all my heart, to be part of my friends and followers and to draw attention to this action in your own network and to share my posts ..
Only you can make this become a reality, because I need your encouragement and your faith when I am weak and I need people who will encourage me.
I'm trying to walk with the planting seasons. I may not always succeed with this plan, so maybe I need to hibernate. How and where, we shall see. If you can offer a roof over my head and a job in which I can help you in winter, then let me know and I’ll ‘hibernate’.
How long it will take for you to circle the planet and create the footpath of life?
That is hard to say. Depends on how many trees i can plant. I hope for many. Realistic all, I would say start from
10 - 15 years. This depends also upon which route will walk.
Above on this site you will find all the social networks I am in. It will be a major help if you connect with me in those networks.
I will use them to document my walk around the world. On youtube you will find weekly video documentations. On flicker I will do the daily photo documentary. The best pic of the day you will find on instagram and much more. Where I will write about the adventures is not sure yet.
If you don´t have any of those, order my newsletter and you will be informed to.
Please help with your friendship and sharings.
Thank you so much.
In any case, crazy enough to devote my life to a task that has become much more important to me than my home, my scooter and my garden. It is my life task, because a suicide kills us all in one way or another.
