Once-in-a-lifetime Hiking:环勃朗峰(Tour de Mont Blanc)路书 -PART 1
必须指出,环勃朗峰不适合徒步新手。装备和大部分长线徒步一样,但因沿途硬件良好,无需帐篷、睡袋、地垫等扎营设备(2000米以下禁止扎营,此外当然也有不少年轻人体力好愿意一路扎营),所以最重要的几样装备是:一个好的背包、两根登山杖(我的是Black Diamond折叠Z杖,适于托运)、一双好鞋(高帮硬底防水这些就不必说了)、水袋和水壶(两个都要,一个是徒步中喝水方便,一个是机动灵活使用)、雨衣、睡袋内胆(越轻越好,很多Refuge是大通铺,被褥不怎么换)。膝关节不好如我者,建议采购保尔芬护膝,篮球运动员常用,穿上后有类似风火轮的作用。其他如肠胃药、防晒霜、遮阳帽、头灯、转换插头、充电宝什么的就不说了。实际上,很多装备都可以在夏穆尼和库马耶采购,但是鞋还是练一练再上路,不磨脚。

Trekking the tour of Mont Blanc: Complete two-way trekking guide (by 功德无量Kev Reynolds)

公认最权威的TMB徒步指南。由于纸质书不便、路上实际极少掏出来看(主要靠路标),但Day One迷路困惑时靠它指明了方向(救命!),做行程、订住宿、了解次日路程详情(尤其是路线选择、海拔变化、亮点难点)、临时改变计划等等都靠这本书。在夏穆尼和库马耶的书店都可以买到,当然最好还是早早就买上一本读懂读透。

Traversing Jiankou Great Wall
Almost exactly 10 years after I first arrived in Beijing in 2007 I found myself back there in March 2017. As has sadly become the norm, the city was shrouded in a thick blanket of smog so we decide…

Chasing Hiroshige’s Vision of Japan
The emotions I experienced after my first trip to Japan in 2011 — and here my parents and children might want to skip ahead — were distinctly similar to those I’d experienced after losing my virginity: something I’d imagined a million times had now taken place, and while it wasn’t exactly as I’d expected, it was still pretty great, and I was now a different person.

A journey along Japan’s oldest pilgrimage route - FT.com

We talked about religion. She told me that like many Japanese people she had married in a Christian ceremony, and that on New Year’s eve she prayed for good luck in the year ahead at a Shinto shrine, the worship place of an indigenous faith that predates Buddhism. She said Japanese people believed in gods of trees and mountains, too. There’s even a toilet god, she added. She’s supposed to be very beautiful.

Hearn’s point about Japanese people, as Maeda saw it, was that their lifestyle, their way of thinking, is religious, but if you put it into words, they dispute that.

There is also a fuzzy line in Japan between the spiritual and the day-to-day. Rather than existing in some alternate realm, the spirit world envelops everyday experience like the weather. These are not things that Japanese people think about with great precision, said Shinichi Takiguchi, who publishes a monthly henro newsletter. People approach spirituality in a kind of foggy way. It’s a bit like they’re daydreaming.

Sociologists have talked about the privatisation of faith in the west, a shift from unified religions towards people concocting their own versions of spirituality in the same way they assemble their wardrobes. It has been lamented as an antisocial byproduct of too much individualism. But it is also happening in Japan, a place usually branded as too conformist, because it is a form of liberation.

Alone in the Alps

I’ve been hiking the Via Alpina on and off for a decade, often without realizing that I was on it. Five interlocked trails crisscross all eight countries of the Alps: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Slovenia, and Switzerland.

It’s one of the distinctive pleasures of Alpine hiking. The glamorous vast multiplicity, all made up of differences, mediaeval, romantic differences, D. H. Lawrence wrote, in Mr. Noon, his semi-fictional account of crossing the Alps with Frieda Weekley after their elopement.

In the Alps, it’s still present in the shifting styles of church towers, village fountains, sheepcotes, hay barns. It’s there in the odd bits of language that filter through even if you’re an incurable monoglot like me. (How nice it is to learn that the German word for the noise cowbells make is Gebimmel, and that the Swiss-Romanche word for boulder is crap.) It’s there in the restaurant menus: daubes giving way to dumplings, raclette to robiola; and in the freshly incomprehensible road signs, which in Slovenia are clotted with impenetrable consonant clusters, as if vowels were an indulgence. Somewhere between Strmec and Cmi Vrh, I ate a pršut (prosciutto) sandwich.

That linkage across time—the sense of being led by the tracks of others who were there before you—is reassuring, especially in the more remote places.

It was as if a second hike, joyous and invigorating, had begun to superimpose itself on the one I thought I’d taken. I’d experienced this alchemy before—the day’s accumulated fretfulness and discomfort turning into pure exhilaration, though seldom this intensely.

Via Alpina was waiting for a prophet to acclaim it.

When I look at the footage now, it seems the perfect emblem of that place: wild and dreamlike and marvellous.

I then headed north into Austria, and resumed following the Purple trail. One stretch of it passes near the Altaussee salt mine, where the Nazis hid some of their stolen art. I dropped down from pristine meadows—still emerald green in August—and looked at the old railbeds, with salt crystals glittering along the tunnels and a subterranean chapel dedicated to St. Barbara, the patron saint of miners. Years-old swags of fir hung on the walls, smelling as if they’d just been cut, the salt air keeping them unnaturally fresh.
