- Camino(s) past & future
- SJpdP to Santiago ( Sept-Oct 2018)
And to me its a no brainer, tis better for me to walk 800km to Santiago with assistance than to curl up and get lost in health related excuses for not ever trying. Whilst I hear the frustration of those who want guaranteed cheaper accommodations and feel that they earn them by walking without support, I am brought to wonder, is the Camino not a victim of its own success? In which case best to go with the flow , remain flexible and adapt to changing tech culture, booking practices or try less populous routes perhaps? While some may still wish to walk without phone or GPS tech, those that use it are walking the walk of their own place in time. And that, to me, is the crunch of the matter. We walk within our allotted place in time, utilising our contemporaneous means to interact with the Camino , yet the Camino endures even as we change and adapt..I believe gourd camelbaks were once the ultimate in new tech!!
