A poem 4

About to start on the trip back home now: Dandong -> Shenyang -> Beijing -> arriving in Oslo December 5th at 18.25. Strange how the trip home is now planned down to the last minute, yet has been postponed time and time again over the last year and a half, due to hardships along the Great Wall.

Will write more about my last day walking to North-Korea later today.

I have been walking longer, faster and with fewer rests than ever before, these last few weeks. This is the poem I have been echoing on long days.

          I will persist until I succeed.
          Always will I take another step.
          If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.
          In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult…
          I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.

          Og Mandino

    A huge congratulations! I’m always impressed by people who not only dream the dream but live it! The big question is- what’s next? Can’t imagine that after an adventure like that one could go back to the day to day routines of life?
    Thanks to VG I just found your blog, so I’ll be reading up on your adventures…perhaps this could be a good book? 😉 Congratulations again!!

    I followed your blog on the great wall trip in China from the very beginning. Even though I did not leave any comments, I am really impressed by your attitude and your efforts to make your dream become true. Can imagine this is not an easy trip, but you made it successfully!
    Good luck for your future!
