    I wonder if I’m the only one imagining this “ border crossing” that seems to be mentioned- lol. On the border if your lucky you might be met by a horse or two in some gorgeous fog ( or not) and a tiny shepherd hut near by. There’s no dramatic crossing, in fact if your phone doesn’t buzz with new...

    If you were to choose your Camino based on the food?

    Well I'm a foodie!!! I'd have to say hands down Le Puy if it is based on food only and IF money is no object. Beautiful artisan salads!!!!! If its based on company at the table Portugal.

    Salads in Portugal - curious

    Don't get me wrong, I love seafood and I love pastry. There is no way Portugal can disappoint me. I'm not asking for assurance of the quality of the food, I know I will be thrilled.

    What goes around comes around.

    Some of my best moments in life as I recollect them are sitting at a table with friends and strangers... some on a large boat in the Greek islands (even though sea sick), one in Conques when American pilgrims from Colorado, who are now like grand parents to my kids insisted on treating my kids...
