The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

Is this the gap between first and second Camino????

Camino(s) past & future
Moissac to Santiago Spring 2005 was the first foray.
Hi all. Now look, I am 70, my music is stuck in 1972, Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention, the McGarrigle Sisters .... but .. hang on! This is Rap isn't it? Machine Gun Kelly? X Ambassadors? Bebe Rexha? Who are these people? ... I'm supposed to be stuck in 1972 music!

But somehow it, to me, it seems to sum up that awful gap between Caminos ... back to that empty false world and the terrible desire to get back home (Camino) again, even though it was painful. You get back, all cleared eyed and cheerful and positive, and the 'real' world slowly imposes, clouds you .... Home - change the word home in the song to Camino if you wish .... Crikey, I absolutely Love this!!! I really do!!!

Trust me here, sound up to the Max - or headphones, maybe full screen it - - and play it a few times .. to me, well, it chokes me up at the same time as getting me to jump up and sway and dance and think of Camino, simple as that - see what you think!!

I'm also a child of the sixties. The music in the 80s, 90s and 00s was, well, *..!..?..!!??, but I really like the modern stuff :cool:, I really really do.

This comes to mind for a nice weather wise and calm day on Camino. It's just like beloved person would go through my hear with fingers:

I can find some more (punk) @Davey Boyd though ;)
