  • Readers of this blog will have noticed that I am a radical Atheist. But there is one religious idea that I have incorporated in my life, although in a secular version.

    It’s the idea of the shabbat, the 7th day of the week, on which one is supposed to rest. I use the Jewish term for this day, because I think it’s the best known, but many other religions have similar recommendations/rules, following a 7-day rhythm, from the Buddhist Belvedere Black Genuine Fuscus Black Boot Size 10 Ugo Casual new shoes Boot to the appropriately named BELVEDERE Crocodile shoes 10 Men Brown Tassle Loafer new shoes Slip On ITALY Leather.

    The Bible says you are not to shear sheep or to plow the field, but as this wouldn’t really make any difference in the lives of most contemporary believers, there is room for interpretation. Have you ever noticed that theology is a lot like law, just without the democratic legitimacy? Contemporary disputes seem to focus on whether it’s OK to drive on shabbat or to use electricity.

    But I am not bound by the Bible or others’ interpretations of it. I don’t have any gods to appease. I have adopted the idea for the sake of my own sanity alone.

    So what do I do on my shabbat?

    The first point is: no work. Now, most people will say “oh, I already do that. I have Saturday and Sunday off.” But that’s not what I mean. After all, I personally don’t work regularly anyway. I mean: not even thinking about work! And that’s a big difference.Belvedere Florence Black Leather Buckle shoes Sz 10.5Belvedere Florence Men’s Black Genuine Ostrich Cap Toe Lace Up’s - Size 11 M

    In practice, this means that on my shabbat, I will not read any e-mails, I will turn off my phone, I will not go through any documents that are work-related, I will not try to improve any skills that can be put to use, and I won’t even think or talk about work.

    I personally don’t even have a regular day of the week for this. Sometimes it’s on the weekend, sometimes during the week, depending on where I am, what I have to do, and on the weather, of course. But it’s the one day of the week that I am always looking forward to.Belvedere florence oxfords mens ostrich shoes size 8 Hand crafted in Belvedere Mare Genuine Ostrich Eel Purple Mens shoes 2P7 There is delight in being unproductive. After all, we are humans, not machines.

    Actually, now that I am thinking of it, maybe I should extend this routine to one week per month.

    In every country, there is a place that everyone, literally everyone, recommends you to visit. Actually, recommend is too weak of a word for the obtrusiveness: “You have to go there!” Instinctively, this raises some resistance with me, because I don’t want to have to do anything. Belvedere Mens shoes Walter Alligator Oxford Antique Charcoal 4B3Belvedere Nino Olive Genuine Ostrich Leg and Eel Bred Men’s Lace Up shoesAnd many of such places are wildly overrated. It leads to tourists driving across the country for hours, only to visit Neuschwanstein or Belvedere Studio Genuine Lizard Skin Black Men's Sz 9.5 H new shoes Leather shoes, although there are hundreds of other castles scattered across Germany or Romania that are equally interesting. But those get passed by, sometimes without noticing them, as the hypnotized herd moves from one hotspot to the next.

    In Canada, this dubious role falls to the small town of Banff in Alberta. When I ask my Canadian friends what is so special about it, they reply: “Mountains, lots of mountains. And a lake!” Not being completely uneducated in the field of geography, I then proceed to inquire if one can’t make the acquaintance of mountains elsewhere in the second largest country of the world, and a country that is home to the Rocky Mountains on top of that. Bewildered, they reply: “But everybody goes to Banff.” Ben Sherman Ashbourne Black Lace Up shoes UK 8 EU 42 JS32 54 SALExBen Sherman Men’s Brown Business Lace Up Oxford shoes 9.5 Medium NewAnd that’s exactly the reason why I won’t go there.

    Granted, I am not very creative either. I simply go to Canmore. Coming from Calgary, that’s about 25 km before Banff. But because there is no hype about this place, you can enjoy the same mountains for a third of the price.


    I have just arrived, breathe the fresh air and soak up the mountain view (both all the more relaxing after three months in a large city), Ben Sherman Men's Conall LoBen Sherman Mickey Leather shoes Mens UK 8 EUR 42 REF 851when a passerby addresses me: “Canmore, it’s a heap of problems.” To me, it all seems so perfect that I have to ask which problems he might allude to.

    “Don’t you see the terrible traffic?”

    Ehm, no.

    He explains that sometimes, the railway crossing is closed for five minutes and that the cars will then back up, BENE MENS BUGATTI ROUND TOE LEATHER SMART LACE UP BLACK COGNAC FORMAL SHOESBerluti 46 12.5EU 13US Almond Brown Patina shoeseven around the corner. To make matters worse, the hospital is on the other side of the railway tracks, “that’s irresponsible!” Small-town problems.

    “One would need to build an overpass, but all the miners here just want to leave everything the way it has always been. I’ve got nothing against the miners, please don’t get me  wrong! After all, they built the town.” And that way, I learn of the mineral-extracting origin of Canmore, of which I had hitherto naively assumed that it was only built for the beautiful location.


    The most striking difference between the big city and Canmore is not only the view, but that strangers simply smile and wave at each other and say hello. Here, I could probably find friends faster than in Calgary, where everybody is just working and shopping all the time.

    The most seductive smile is directed at my by a bookstore in the main street, Berluti Light-bluee Suede Leather shoes Loafers Size 43, UK-9, US-10, but I am already carrying more than enough books with me. To be on the safe side, I don’t even dare to enter, for fear of losing my last few dollars.

    Cafe Books front Canmore


    The ladies at the reception of the cozy Mountain View Inn hardly give me a chance to get to know the town by myself. Each time they spot me, they give me more maps, bus schedules and café recommendations.

    And every morning, they want to know where I will be hiking that day. “Don’t forget the bear spray,” the older one of them admonishes me, as I am about to leave one day.

    “Oh. Where can I get this bear spray?”, I ask somewhat incredulously, thinking of the anti-shark spray from the Batman movie.

    “We will give you a can,” she offers, grabs something from under the counter, and equips me with the weapon. Good that I am not a pacifist.

    Honestly, I suspect that the weapons handed to tourists are only a marketing gimmick to make the harmless walks appear more dangerous. Like the life vests on rubber dinghies.


    On the other hand, maybe the bears are real and come all the way into town. Because the rubbish bins are built so bear-proof that they are not only bomb-proof, but also leave me wondering to no avail how the heck I am supposed to put the rubbish inside. I give up.

    Personally, I would find it smarter to leave the rubbish bins accessible, allowing the bears to get full on pizzas. Then, they wouldn’t need to devour humans. That’s how it’s done in Romania, where humans and bears live in peaceful coexistence. But that’s the difference between a socialist-solidary and a capitalist-egoistic society.


    It’s only the end of March, but spring is already raging. The snow on the south-facing hills is melting. The bears are just waking up. And after six months of sleep and diet they are, as the saying goes, as hungry as a bear.

    The horoscope for cancers in the Globe & Mail says: “You’ve got that feeling that you must do something to prove yourself.” I understand that as an encouragement to go bear hunting.


    On the bus to Canmore, I spoke with a girl who only went to Banff for one day. Berluti ZERO CUT MEN Black new shoes shoes US 7.5 Fit US8.0Berwick 1707 4235 In Pelle brown Fondo Cuoio Goodyear Welted Oxford shoes 42.5She would have a couple of hours to walk around there, before heading back to Calgary. When you see all the photos of Canadian women on Facebook or Tinder, each of them in front of a mountain lake or on a summit, you might think “wow, those people are really outdoorsy”. But for most of them, it’s just a day trip, often by car, stepping out briefly at a parking area to take the fake nature photos.

    “I heard that the most beautiful hike in Canada is in Banff,” she explains. Just for that, she flew to Alberta. It is really strange that in a country as large as Canada, 95% of the population believes that you can only hike in Banff or in Jasper. A mere 10 km to the south or the east, Best Tod's Ferrari Gommino Suede Driving Moccasins With Front leather leatherBill Blass Vintage Mens shoes Oxfords Loafer USA Size. 45they already think it’s a terribly stupid idea. Outdoor spirit this is not.

    A friend from Calgary also once wanted to seduce me to Banff, but she only had time for a day trip. “For lunch, there are three options,” my guide began to plan, “there is a burger restaurant, where everybody goes when they are in Banff. Then there is …” Billy Reid Wingtips Men's new shoes shoes 9.5 Brown LeatherBlack And White Wing Tip with Glossy Finish Tuxedo shoesI dared to interrupt her and point out that I would go to Banff for the mountains and lakes, the bears and the forests. Especially if I only had one day, I definitely wouldn’t waste two hours of the still scarce daylight in a restaurant. “I’d rather get a Snickers bar from the gas station and spend more time in the mountains,” I explained, but she didn’t understand.

    Thus, I went alone. To Canmore instead of Banff. And for a whole week, not just a measly day.


    My first hike leads me along the Bow River, whose acquaintance I had already made.Black new shoes shoes Dockers Size 11 Polish Black Leather Sole

    In this kind of nature, I almost want to get lost. Some of the river’s tributaries are still frozen over,Black Goodyear Welted shoes Size 10 1 2 RetailBlack Leather Cole Haan Oxford CapToe Comfort Sole Mens Size 9 D shoes granting access to islands or to the opposite shore, although sometimes, it crackles alarmingly as I run across the ice. Alternatively, I cross the river on toppled trees.

    I absorb the mountains like fresh air after years in a bunker of asbestos, not only because of the welcome change to the past three months in a big city, but also because in a week, I will be sitting on the train across the rather flat prairies.Black Man Made Italian Leather new shoes shoes Oxford shoes, Size 42Black Platform 70s Pimp Daddy Disco Mens Costume shoes Clear Fish size 8 9 10 11.


    And thus I walk and walk, always following the river. The further away I get from Canmore, the fewer joggers and cyclists cross my path, until I am finally alone in the forest.

    But sooner or later, I will have to think about returning, because it’s already past 4pm. And exactly in that moment, I reach a road with a bus stop. An exemplary bus stop even! With route maps, schedule, prices and all the other information that fans of public transit want.

    The next bus will arrive in 20 minutes, not a bad frequency for Saturday afternoon in the mountains. Until then, I will try to get back into town by hitchhiking. After 25 failed attempts, a red BMW stops. The driver welcomes me with the words “usually, I never stop for hitchhikers”, Black Velvet merlutti Black Tassel LowBlakeseys PISTOL Mens Leather Horsebit Loafers Smart Formal Evening shoes Blackand I thank him profoundly for making an exception. Quickly, it turns out that his mother is from Berlin and his father from Vorarlberg, although they migrated to Canada ages ago, the driver emphasizes. I try to discern whether his parents’ flight from German-Austrian territories instilled in him a negative opinion of people from there, but I cannot read his eyes. Like everybody in Canmore, the driver wears sunglasses at all times. Maybe this town is a nest of spies?

    He recommends a certain hike and the Legion, a home for veterans, bluee Men’s new shoes shoes St. John’s Bay Leather Red Sole Men’s Size 10 Formal 1 2BNIB KG KURT GEIGER BELLA SHOES Size 8 41as the place with the cheapest beer. And then the ride is already over. It’s sad that hitchhiking has been made illegal on some roads in Canada, while not on others. That confuses drivers and they never stop at all. And it would be such a wonderful way to get to know the country and the people.
