The Camino


Two years ago exactly NOW I was walking the Camino de Santiago across Spain. I walked more than 500 miles in 33 days. Today I am in the midst of this global pandemic and sheltering in place, and likely for at least 33 days if not more. I am using this time to remember how it felt on the path, how every step you take you must be present and not concerned about the future or harboring stress about the past.  (By the way this photo was from one of those, “YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.” moments, sometimes the obstacles seem insurmountable.)

If you would like to go on this journey with me I will repost my blog post links daily OR you can read from the beginning here from the beginning as I have put them in order.  I had a few more posts upon returning, but they were REALLY boring and kind of had me feeling sorry for myself, so you can find those in there if you are dying to know how mundane life is OFF the Camino.

My heart goes out to anyone who’s journey was thwarted by this terrible pandemic and to all the people who keep up the infrastructure that allowed me to take this leap of faith.  We will walk again my friends, this is our Camino for now, so stay home, rest easy and have faith and we will get there.  Know that once you have made the commitment or even thought about walking that you are on the right path already.  Ultreia!

Buen Camino!
