English Lindsay Hamon, walks the world in permanent pilgrimage, in a very personal and special way, given that he wears a huge wooden cross with a wheel with a wheel at the tip, touring the UK and remote corners of the world, such as Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka. In his last 26 years he has traveled more than 8,000 kilometers.
“It started modestly, in southwest England, with a distance of Land’s End to Plymouth (…) A few months later, he went from Plymouth to London, and then went to Ireland. Eventually I traveled from London to Berlin, from Berlin to Moscow and from Moscow to Paris, Slovakia and Hungary,” he adds.
Hamon, who is a practicing Catholic, began to walk with the cross after a close friend lost his faith and even now maintain their tradition.
“I thought about walking to the city where he lived and pray every day for him to to come back to God. Not sure if he did, but I thought I’d carry the cross as witness (… )”
This is the third cross he have. The first was stolen in the Reading rock festival and the second was seized by customs of India, a few years ago. Hamon said he would like to visit China, Africa and South America at some point. Meanwhile, continue walking with the cross as long as he has the strength.
