Father Johannes - very well written travel story! I hope for more. The English flows nicely, and the details are interesting. Thank you!

Oliver welcome to the forum have you been on the camino or are you planning any trips in the future and what was your best part of the Camino you walked
InTheFlow wrote on ivar's profile.
Hi Ivar; I'm planning to walk any of the last 100 km (time constraints) starting Christmas and reaching New Year's Eve Santiago. I would be happy to hear some advice on feasibility and hotels and options for participating in events. I live in Spain(Barcelona) and have travelled the Camino Frances by bike and foot last year. Thanks, Simon
Having been on the Camino in 2018, my book "Without Oars: Casting Off into a Life of Prilgimage" was just released this week. https://www.broadleafbooks.com/store/productgroup/1949/Without-Oars How pilgrimage transforms our spiritual journey.

Via Francigena starting in March 2021, I’m looking for a walking partner for the journey
I understand that this might not be an easy person to find, given that we all walk for different reasons at different paces and with different needs. However , given the length of the journey I believe there would be many advantages to having a walking partner .Drop me a line if you’re interested
