End of the journey together…..

Tue 27 Jul 2010 15:18 » Klaas

Since the 4th of July, 23 days now, I’ve been dragged through these Pyreneen mountains by Jon…

Here, in Hospitalet pres de l’ Andorre, we have decided to go our own way for the last 10 stages, which in a way I surely regret!!

In the past weeks with many hard days Jon has proven to be a true friend on which a man can build; we had a lot of support of each other.

Together we have faced up steep scree slopes, large snowfields, high cols, hunger and thurst, cold and heat, thunderstorms, bear attacks, lost football finals and even wet grass……

But, a man has got to do what he has got to do and in an emotional way both of us agree to finish alone as it is the way we started this mountain traverse…..

I’m pretty sure that someday, somewhere we will meet again: experiencing all the callenges mentioned above created a band beyond friendship……

  1. Hello Klaas, we really appreciate the support you have given Jon this past month. I’m not sure when you began the walk, but Jon sounded a bit miserable until he met you! Good luck with the final stages, and thanks again, from the old folks in the north.
