Hey folks:

This may have been mentioned by someone else, but I found a series of YouTube videos about a couple (and their very small and very cute baby, Indigo) as they walk the Camino. I thought they were interesting, anyway. The trip started on Jan 1st, 2013, so it is quite recent.

The first entry (actually two days before they started walking): ... 9GOE8fertQ

Yes, I am in the process of watching it thinking 'wow!,' if they can do that then surely I can! Inspiring.

Horrified that baby would be travelling in the front passenger seat.

Lots of lessons learned or to be learned, The biggest one for me is if you want to make a documentary put a 'mouse' over the microphone to stop the wind noise

13th April 2013 leaving. SJPDP via Rome
30Kg plus extras...I was thinking 9kg was getting high.
At first i thought..child abuse...but the baby seemed okay. I enjoyed the movie, except for some singing lol
I did look up the muscle rub he mentioned. It is a base carrier and not an active ingredient. Not sure how it would work.
Still.... It was worth watching :)

I love it. The last episode, they had just passed through a very cold and snowy Foncebadon. The kid looks perfectly fine to me but i just don't know how he carries that weight day in and out :)

Camino Frances "2013" had to stop half way due to tendonitis ... Continuing May 2014..postponed to 2015. SdC to Muxia 2016.
I certainly applaud them on their Camino. I spent most of a wet afternoon following their journey and as previously said, if they can do it with 30 kgs and a baby, then I can! (In 7 weeks... Ooooh!)

P.S. what an enchanting baby!
Just finished watching Day 30 and am really enjoying the journey with this family. I walked this route last September / October and everything is so well remembered and loved. It's been fascinating following along with Victoria, Matthew and Indigo. Such familiar places but with different challenges and experiences - especially with this winter walk. How wonderful it will be for Indigo to have such an amazing record of this earliest part of his life, seeing how well loved he is and how much joy he brings to his parents and everyone he meets along the way. I admire them tremendously for "seizing the day", taking this adventure as a family and for taking such good care of each other through all the challenges they've faced.

I have four weeks until I start and I have been checking forums and watching YouTube clips.
It's almost too much research and the initial excitement about the great unknown is fading fast.
I think I need to write down all the possible transport permutations and contact numbers and the disconnect from this research.
I'd love to not take a phone or camera at all. Or maybe a non smart phone for family contact
