While not exactly the same motivation, here is the link to another notable walker's travels around various parts of the world: http://winterpilgrim.blogspot.com/ . Ann Sieben walks as a mendicant pilgrim, that is, she carries no money, no cell phone, no GPS, nothing of value -- as a Catholic Christian pilgrim visiting religious shrines she relies on the charity and hospitality of monasteries, convents, churches, and even individuals to sustain herself while on pilgrimage. To date she has walked at least 25,000 miles on at least six continents (not sure if she's been to Australia yet). Ann, with the help and input of others, has developed an organization called The Society of Servant Pilgrims http://societyofservantpilgrims.com/society/ to promote pilgrimages around the world with the underlying goal " ...meet the neighbors of the world, and in so doing, build trust, which is the foundation of peace."

And it all started in 2007 with the Camino de Santiago.

Sitting on my sofa with my dog, I am enriched. Suffering, in elation? I can’t think of any deeper human capability.
