    Nationalities on the Camino

    I really dislike where this thread has gone. Sterotyping has no place on the Camino or anywhere else for that matter. Come on y’all we can do better.

    Nationalities on the Camino

    I had quite a funny reaction when the woman in Finisterre who was giving me a pedicure asked where I was from. I answered California she jumped up ran and got her phone pulled up a picture of the original Baywatch and grinned as she said “California”!!

    Pictures that show you totally outside your comfort zone on the Camino!

    In 1973 i had a bad horse experience been terrified of them ever since until i met this sweetie outside of Pieros. We shared some dried mango, my fear gone. Magical things happen on the Camino💜🐴💜

    Carry On Question?

    I surrender!! I realize just because i’ve never experienced my pack being lost probably ups the odds that it will be. As the saying goes” there’s a 1st time for everything” next trip I’ll just check my poles much easier to replace. Thanks for the common sense advice. 😊🚶🏽‍♀️

    Carry On Question?

    I don’t know where you got your info about Iberia being notorious for losing luggage. I fly Iberia and they have never lost my checked backpack.

    Hiking Quotes - just for fun.

    The song that most represented my Camino is by Tom Petty. “Started out down a dirty road, started out all alone” “I’m learning to fly but i ain’t got wings” I changed the next line a bit. “Going back (home) was the hardest thing” I miss the Camino EVERY day.
