CF april 18.. CP sep 18.. CF april 2020
I decided to document my Camino adventure (CF) with a blog. This will be my first Camino and I plan to go from couch potato to trail-ready between feb1st and april 18th (my start date). As I prepare for my Camino no doubt I will make mistakes which I hope you can avoid. Also maybe it will inspire you if, like me you are unsure wether this journey is for you.
My blog will continue through my final month of training and throught my Camino. Hopefully you can join me as I undertake the biggest thing I have ever attempted in my life. My blog is at firstcamino.wordpress.com and I would be delighted if you would have a look.. any advice would be greatly appreciated (and shared) be it about my journey or even my style of blogging !! (I'm new at both)
thank you

Buen Camino

Thanks kirkie. The blog is going well (probably better than the training) a few people have said they can't find a follow button but I think you're the first that couldn't comment. I think that makes you special. I will consider awarding badges at the end of the month to be honest i haven't got a clue how the site works I'm just winging it still.

I am loving your blog. Trying hard not to just binge read it all in one sitting. I would enjoy doing so, but I suppose I should be somewhat productive in the job I am paid to perform.

Keep it up!

There's a strong chance there may be more blogging in the near future. I'm trying to work out how I can get a second Camino into this year's plan.. I'm glad you liked the CF one, I'm amazed at how many people have positive things to say about it. It makes writing it worthwhile

So far I am only on your Day 15, but have learned so much from it and picked up on some valuable tips. Besides all of that, your writing is hilarious. I am sure I speak for many when I say that I hope there is more blogging in your future.
