Birthday omen

Year of past OR future Camino
CF- Finisterre-Muxia 03/17; Camino SK 10/17; Norte 03/18; Ingles 11/18; Augusta 03/19
I’ve been struggling with the uncertainty of when I can Camino again. Lockdown with my dog has been at times a gift vs lonely and boring but this forum and all of you has kept the dream alive. Today is my birthday and upon arriving home after my morning 8km walk (in the snow and -15C weather) this is what was in my mailbox.....definitely God telling me to never stop dreaming and planning my next Camino ❤️👣👣👣👣

Birthdays, in some respects, have gone out of style. Folks are too busy to have one. Others respond with a fixed phrase "Happy Birthday" on an email or FB and there is the friend or family member that voices "Please, it's just another day. Don't do anything special!" Then, they sit at home, or wait at the phone, hoping you DO do something at least out of the ordinary.
The Camino is anything but ordinary. Regardless of how you plan. What you hope will be a firm start date, lodging, or physical fitness at kick off...the Camino will be what is has always been...the final result of all.
A very Happy, heartfelt, Birthday.
Buen :Now blow out the candles" Camino

Merci beaucoup Anik. I’m looking to take my dog and stay in a cottage over the river for a few days , walk somewhere different a few days to save my sanity. 🤔

Any warmer in Peterborough? It’s too much cold already. Dream dream! Thanks

Temperatures not much different but a lot less humid here which makes a difference. Maybe, when things settle, we could meet in Ottawa and have a coffee chat. I am down there often as I have two sons living there. Enjoy your day.
