How addictive is the Camino?

Cycled to Santiago in 2004 (return trip with a total of just over 5400 km in 8 weeks), and not a day goes by that I'm not thinking about the trip and cycling parts of the route in my mind.

The more time passes the more I realize that I want to experience the whole thing over again, hopefully within a couple of years when my boss will allow me to have another 8 week's holiday. Sure, I had some bad experiences on the Spanish campingsites (some were extremely noisy after 12:00 at night), and the occassional driver who appeared to hate cyclists on the road, but fortunate the good memories become stronger over the years.

Are there more people out there with a similar experience, and if so, is it curable? :roll:

Daar was ik al bang voor. 'k Zal me baas alvast inlichten over toekomstige vakantie plannen.

I thought so, better inform my manager that I will need more and longer holidays in the near future.

Camino-itis is a non curable disease and sufferers continually try and find like minded souls who share the same illness!
