Walk of Causes – Episode 1

How do you prepare yourself for the longest march of your life?

Matias called Jørgen in the morning for the last checkup, “How did you manage to put all the stuff in your rucksack? There is too much camera gear!” We had to leave the tent behind, and we forgot to bring a map. We weren’t really prepared.




Getting from Beirut to Machta Hammoud, our starting point, was piece of cake. Three bus rides and we were there. The goal was to make it to El Qbaiyat before dark, but the rucksacks that felt so light when we tried them on at home, turned into led when we hit the road. After one hour we had to stop for a beer. That’s when we met Elias. He served us whiskey, and gave us a warm bed to sleep in. The next morning, with no proper map, no GPS and no compass, we embarked on a quest through the fog into the deep forrest.

The first episode of Walk of Causes is dedicated to Peace and Health. It’s sponsored by the Norwegian UNIFIL veteran Stein Nilsen. Half of the money donated by him will go to Lebanese Red Cross to continue the work they do on improving the general health situation in the country. The other half went to cover production expenses, so this episode could reach you.
