Camino(s) past & future
September 2018 - planning
I've been walking almost two weeks now, on a very spiritual journey starting at Lourdes on the Piémont Route and now on the route France. I'm a Buddhist but I'm walking for my deceased Catholic mother. I'm writing a daily blog with a two day delay, and regularly updating here: http://www.albarclay.blog.

It's a personal account but periodically I get practical, such as my equipment list when I got to St Jean Pdp: https://albarclay.blog/2018/10/09/day-8-recuperation-at-st-jean/

I'm about 28 days from Santiago depending on stops. The new blog goes up at 7am Camino time and will continue until mid November 2018 after which it'll become about life in London again probably. But this forum has been useful to me so I thought I'd share the link in the hopes somebody takes something from my daily thoughts and lessons.
