Hi, my name is Viktoria and met Rick on Camino de Santiago after Logrono end of July 2016. We had wonderful hours together and were talking a lot amd were spending much time together. He is religios (I am not) and living in Delft in a students home. He walked from Holland the whole way and was 5 months on the way when we met. We had a few bottles wine together and met an artist from New Zealand. Rick loves graffitis and street art and had some issues from his history. You are writing diary and in your backback was a lot of souvenir stuff. You liked souvenir shops a lot and had a too short tracking pole. We are both slowely walkers and late wake ups, but I went a bit faster than you. You had a moustage and you are really tall.

I am Viktoria (candy shop) from Austria. I did the camino after i finished university and met you in my first week of the camino. I gave you my emailadress, but you didn't write. I would like to hear from you again. You described me as REAL and UNCOMPLICATED and different than every woman you have ever met. I left you messages on stones on the way and hope you were able to read some of them.
Hope we could talk again some time
