Even small steps lead to the goal
I’ll be honest, when I first read your footprints on Find Penguins, I didn’t expect you to complete the entire trail. How wrong I was. As a man, one all too easily forgets that it takes much more courage for a woman to camp alone in an outdoor shelter. You did it anyway, and you can truly be proud of yourself. Your North German serenity and perseverance, which are foreign to a Rhinelander like me, seem to have motivated you. If someone were to ask me what ‘Hike your own Hike’ means, I would point them to your journey. Don’t look at others, but follow your own path… mindful, curious, and sociable, accompanied by friends and at your own pace.
You even had time to give an interview to the local press and share pictures of shelters and water sources with us. With that, you are only the third woman to have completed the entire North-South Trail, but hopefully not the last. Dear ‘Deichschaf,’ welcome to the Hall of Fame and never forget…
