Love on Camino

Moissac to Santiago Spring 2005 was the first foray.
Hi all, some years ago I met a young American couple - Texicans - on Camino. They were really sweet.
Their story was that they were childhood sweethearts, grew up in a safe and privileged environment, even went to college together.
They were going to get married but the boy (at my age they were grown children to me) was concerned that nothing 'bad' had ever happened in their lives so how would they be when a crisis came.
So they decided to walk the Camino, to see how they got on out of their comfort zone. They loved it all, supported each other, and when they went back home they married.
When I met them they were doing the Camino again, as their Honeymoon. Bless ❤ .

I wondered if any had Camino romance/love anecdotes they would like to share. .... ??

I met a young girl from Texas, mid twenties, in SJPP. We walked for about a week on the Frances. A few days after we parted she met a young man from Sweden. They walked the rest of the Way to Santiago together. The Camino provided. They fell in love. A few years later they walked it again and shot their engagement photos in Muxia. They’ve been happily married for 2 years!
Throughout the Camino I met up with them several times and we became lifelong friends. It’s been wonderful following their love story.

Hope so!
My walking companion on my first Camino met a German girl in Tricastela. After further courtship and travel, they have now been married 10 years.
If memory serves, the couple running gite at St Privat dAllier met on a camino and later married.
Yes, there probably scores of love stories on the camino.

Camino Frances & Camino Finisterre/Muxia April 2019
I came upon a young couple outside of Leon. They had just begun their Camino. They were walking their path holding hands. Days later and two hours out from Samos I noticed ahead a couple holding hands. When I caught up to them I recognized they were the same couple I had met outside Leon. I told them I immediately recognized them because they had been the only pilgrims I encountered holding hands. I received two huge smiles.

Camino Frances, Leon to Santiago in Sept.- Oct. (2016)
...solo, and again in 2019 with my wife.
In an albergue I shared a room with two pilgrims, each from a different part of the world... we crossed paths a number of times along the path, and became friends. Six months later they were engaged, and two years later they were married. The bride asked if she might commission me to do a painting as a wedding gift for her husband to be... I painted this as a gift to them both, and as a further expression of the wonder that is my Camino.IMG_4411.jpg
