Camino 2017

Camino(s) past & future
Frances St Jean -Santiago April -June 2017
Portugues September 2018
Hola pilgrims on this day last year 23rd April my wife and I started our camino.
From St Jean we walked 41days to Santiago yes it was tough but very rewarding . Of course there were timeswhen we wondered "why we were doing this?" But wow what an experience one to treasure!. In fact were walking the Portugues in September and the frances again in 2020 when we'll be 70
I guess like many others we will be saying "This time last year we were ......" So a Buen camino to everyone especially to those of you starting today. Remember The camino is like taking your life for a walk
Paso a paso Regrds fron Barbara and Roger
PS You may remember me I was part of camino folk lore for a while when after coffee and croissant at an outdoor bar stood up and walked straight into an irrigation channel. For me only a bruised ego for my wife days of no stop laughter! Buen camino

Amazing how fast a year passes. It was a year last week for me and I think about the journey almost every day and am looking forward to the day I can return. Buen Camino on your future journeys.

I just finished my first Camino on Friday! What a rush it was and how rewarding the experience was, as well.

While on my walk, I was gathering information from fellow pilgrims regarding their reflections while on the walk. It's a part of my senior thesis, and I am SO curious to hear more about pilgrims' motivations and experiences. If you (whoever is reading this) would be interested, I would be so very grateful for extra feedback/data.

I've put together a quick, on-line survey, if you would like to contribute! Feel free to share, as well. :)


Buen Camino, as it never really ends.
