Drove to Sarria today


Veteran Member

I must admit...I stopped and went back to the photo section for the CF and "rewalked" the Way from Sarria into SDC. Then I thought of where I was in my planning this time last year. The hubris, the confidence...truly, the pride goeth before the fall.

I am even more convinced than ever I will walk the Way again this year.

Saludos my friend,

Beautiful photos Ivar - but not a gravelly rutted path in sight: no steep uphill dirt trails through canopied corriedors: no cowshit-and-mud lanes between barns and dry stone walled fields: no paths through Eucalyptus forests? You have sussed out the distance but the camino has hidden the true paths from you!

I know. One of the products of my new adventure would be organizing group-walks from Sarria to Santiago. In one of these first groups, I will be a member. I need to walk it!

Ivar admitted: I need to walk it!

While that's obviously a personal decision I believe a solid business one.

I know of at least six times I ducked my head into a possible lodging location and, upon seeing a Compostela and sellos on the wall above the check in desk...I was sold!

I believe the same will ring true with your new adventure...sort of a "been there...done the t-shirt" thing. By the way, don't forget to make a t-shirt part of the package for your walking tour folks. May a suggest a 50-50% cotton/poly pro so that it can easily dry when wet.

Buen what a super idea Camino,
