- Camino(s) past & future
- Planning to walk the Camino in fall of 2015....and it's nearly here. Start my walk from St. Jean PP on August 14th.
I'd planned to be in Santiago De Compostela this weekend, enjoying the completion of a 2020 walk from Porto along the Portugal Route to Santiago with my daughter and granddaughter. My twin sister, my husband and my son-in-law were traveling with us by auto as we celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary. We had reservations for 2 nights in the Parador De Santiago; a long time "bucket list"! Due to Covid-19 we cancelled our planned two month journey several months ago as three of us are over 80 and two more of our group are 60+. As I walked near our home with my husband this morning I was reminded of where we would be today in a perfect world: Santiago! This was to be my third Camino and probably my last as I'm 82 years old this year. We would be continuing along the Camino Frances to St. Jean, mostly by automobile , showing my granddaughter the trials that I walked with her mother two years ago on my second journey; before ending our journey in Madrid. Maybe my last but who knows what the future will provide. Buen Camino
