- Camino(s) past & future
- Sept 25 Oct 3 2016
My husband and I walked a portion of the Camino de Santiago Sept 25 - Oct 3 from SSJP to Logrono. It was all the time we could take from work and decided when planning to do the Camino in 3 stages over 3 years. We've been home for 3 weeks now and the high is still on. However this past week while talking to some people about our experience and our "Camino family" one person asked how it felt to walk with "real pilgrims" implying we were not because we didn't walk the entire 800 km in one go. Another person implied they agreed with that person. Has anyone else has a similar experience? I identify as a pilgrim of the way and I must say, I am normally a strong person who is not overly influenced by the opinion of others. However one of these people is someone I highly respect and frankly it brought me down and somewhat sullied my experience.
