What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

This was on the road hitch hiking to barcelona, it was a long and brutal journey.
Once we had made it out of France and in to Spain we soon realised that the police in Spain unlike the police in France, will not allow you to hitchhike.
This presents some problems, because if ur at a tole junction or service station in the middle of nowhere there's not really any way to get away from that area other than to hichhike.
Having spent a night sleeping in the bushes of a near by service station on in france the next day we caut a lift and were droped just on the inside of spain at a tole junction.
The perfect place we thought for continuing to Barcelona .
Unfortunately it was not to long before the gaudia civil tunred up and didnt take to kindly to what we were doing.
With broken english a groupe of men in uniforms beckoned us over and preceded to shout and threaten us with fines or arrest .
This was pritty scary, one because i had no idea if what we were soing was illegal, so i didn't know my rights. And secondly from storries ive heard if i did have any rights i dont know whether it would have mattered. I didnt want to be fined €150 and really didnt want to be arrested .
The problem was that we had no other means of getting anywhere elce. We decided to walk across fields jumping fences, wich was also scary as we were clearly in places we wernt ment to be and i always had the idea that we might get shot by a farmer or batterd by a bull in the back of my mind. After another night sleeping in a field the next day we found a decent spot on wich to catch a lift and just hoped we wouldnt bump into more Spanish police.
After a couple of hours we got picked up by Peter, a lovely man who worrked as a green energy consultant and had a the most plesent few hours drive with a lovely stop for lunch as he took us into Barcelona !
