Hello all,

First off I'd like to thank everyone for posting in this forum. I haven't really posted anything, but I've poured over and over the great advice and insight that everyone was able to lend.

This is my first Camino and I'm incredibly nervous for taking off on my own, but I feel like it's the right thing to do. I'm worried about being alone, being able to handle it, and/or being disappointed by any mishaps. I know all of this is bound to happen and I just hope that I'll be able to carry my head high and get through everything gracefully. I'm really looking forward to meeting people and seeing beautiful things!

I'm off to get on an overnight train soon from London through Paris to Bayonne and hopefully I can get myself to St. Jean in the morning to start the Camino Frances route if I can get there early enough with no issues!

Just a few days ago I finished my first Camino video. That one was about Camino Frances. The first Camino got me addicted. Two years later I was back on the Camino - this time I started walking...
