Camino Frances 2019 PostScript 2: CAMINO COLLOCATION

2020 Camino Guides
Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances 2014
Camino Portugues 2015
7 Days post Camino - things are different - mostly good, perhaps a few not-so-good, definitely different.
If you read this post and you've walked a Camino, most likely you know the feeling. If you’re doing research for a future Camino, this may not make as much sense.
Suzie and I have walked two Camino Frances from St. Jean. I’ve walked a solo Camino from Porto. Before our departure, I asked myself, "Would a second Camino be more difficult?" Upon our return, the answer is still elusive.
The Camino has a Way of impacting your being unlike most other experiences. A week after returning from Spain and I'm still thinking about what it all means.
In the interim, there are Camino terms and phrases that have special meanings to Pilgrims. If you've walked the Camino, you have what I call "Camino Distinction" - you immediately know certain things about the Camino - the travel, the walking, the backpack, the food, the albergues, the churches, other Pilgrims, etc. Once you walk the Camino, you can now distinguish very specific things about the Camino that were not possible to know unless you walked The Way.
So let's have some fun. 2 Words - a Collocation - that describe something unqiue about the Camino. The first word being "Camino" and the second word being ... <fill in the blank>
For example, "Camino Angel" or "Camino Magic". For most pilgrims, something immediately comes to mind when these words are expressed.
I'm most certain there are “A” thru “Z” Camino Collocations. Here are some of mine:
Camino Funk
Camino Fatigue
Camino Rhythm
Camino Stare
What are yours?
Camino Angel
Camino B_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
...
Camino Magic
...
Camino Z_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
... and if I were to say "Camino Haystack", we all get this image of the enormous bales of hay stacked along The Way. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that wanted to stop, climb to the summit, just to get another view ;-)

The Camino brought the word “pilgrim” into modern times for me. It was a badge I felt uncomfortable wearing at first - somehow it seemed.....I’m not sure, I think perhaps pretentious. But it is a term I have grown fond of.

Camino Weighbridge. I have never seen so many weighbridges in my life. The CF seemed to have one in every little village and hamlet. I even spotted an abandoned one in Pontferada.

More from my 2016 camino than my 2018 camino: "Camino shuffle". You are fine walking all day (20 km, 25 km, 30 km, what have you) and are walking more or less normally when you arrive. Then you lie down and rest. When you get up you are walking like you are in your 90s, slowly shuffling and dreading any stairs that may be in your immediate future, In the morning, when you start walking again, you are fine. It is more pronounced at the beginning of your Camino and gradually fades with the distance. You see it again in others after Sarria.

During one of my caminoes I had a really painful knee, but had got used to it, one day I met a person who just looked at me and said, I can see you have got that characteristic Camino-limp:rolleyes:

Camino legs. After at least a week walking, your legs get strong.

Camino Clothes
I am still wearing some from of the ones my 2016 Camino Clothes and always looking for something that would make good Camino attire. (merino wool shirts, lightweight sweaters, light puffy coats for a winter camino, shorts, hiking pants, etc) Also extends to shoes, When I put on a pair of walking shoes I always think about whether these could be a pair of Camino shoes or Camino sandals.

Caminoland..somwhere East of Santiago where time moves so fast it seems to stand still, where the cafes are sublime , the inhabitants are generous and the landscapes abound in beauty. In this fair realm you never want for a caring companion and your joyous spirit roams free .
