Yesterday I published the first video about the peacewalk and why I am walking:
I was happy to receive so much support and kind words from people all over the world.
Some asked if I have a route. I do. I’ve made a preliminary itinerary in Google Maps.
You can take a look at it below. If you see that I am passing by close to any peace related area (could be a monument, shrine, any religious/spiritual center or wonders of nature) please feel welcome to send me a comment with your recommendation:
Dates and countries:
2017, 29 April, peace march in Gothenburg and then train to Leipzig and resume the walk. On my way to Istanbul I pass Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Bukarest. It’s roughly 2000-2500km to Istanbul which means around 150-200 days (20-25km/day is a good average with breaks every week)
2017 Winter: Boat across the Black sea to Georgia and walk to the Caspian sea and Teheran. Then another boat across the Caspian Sea and walk to Volgorod in Russia. Train to Moscow (hope to give Vladimir a hug) and train across Sibiria to Beijing, China.

Walk through Europe, passing Paris, Brussel, London, Dublin and Edinburgh. Finally return to Norway and Scandinavia. Walk across Sweden to the Capitol and down to Varberg where I began 2016. Roughly 10 years later. Hopefully 10 million vows by then and a world in peace.
How do you fund a peacewalk like this?
You ask the world of course.
If 200 individuals dedicated to peace donates 5$ each monthly, I will have more than enough funds to afford both the food, the transports and the shoes needed for the peacewalk. This way I can remain unbiased and keep my walk a grassroot initiative without having any organisations or corporations involved.
