Barcelona mid Sept. to SJPP


New Member
I am traveling from Colorado on Sept. 12 to Barcelona. I am slightly anxious about getting to SJPP to begin my Camino from Barcelona due my lack of Spanish. I have seen the potential travel arrangements on the forum and am wondering if there is anyone out there who might have similar travel plans. It is clear that the journey has already begun while I prepare for the trek across Spain. I am grateful for the forum since the majority of my questions are answered. I feel as though I have already met Ivar and Grant (diff. forum) and appreciate their vast knowledge and helpful hints one needs to know for the Camino.

It's funny... as I prepare for the future I am reminded that I really have no control of what lies ahead. I can walk, read, search the internet, shop for light weight silk sacs, but all in all I need to trust the process.

So...my plan is to be in SJPP around Sept. 14. I have always wanted to see some of Gaudi's work hence the travel to Barcelona. Anyone else going my way?
