My Camino Blog is Finished!!!

Camino(s) past & future
May-June (2018) Camino Frances
#1
So... I finished my first Camino (French Way) on June 24 and keep a daily blog.

YES, I did suffer a little bit carrying an extra 4 pounds (2kg) with my iPad, keyboard, case, camera... BUT I don't regret it now. After about a week on the Camino, all the days start to blend together and becomes hard to remember all the details. The blog really helps me remember the whole experience.

I just finished cleaning up the blog and if you are interested, here is the link:

https://jjscamino.wordpress.com/tag/blog/

My objectives for the blog are simple:
  • To show the beauty of the Camino through my photos. (Note: I’m just an amateur photographer)
  • And add just enough commentary to capture what I feeling along Camino.
  • Plus add a few funny stories and pithy comments to make it a little interesting (including my famous SandwichCam :))
  • For those of you thinking about doing the Camino… to whet your appetite.
  • For those who have done the Camino… bring back some good memories.
Hope you enjoy it!!!!!

Cheers,

-jj

PS – I assume no responsibilities for typos or poor grammer in the blog. I have a Engineering degree fer God’s sakes.
OK… I feel much better with that off my shoulders
:cool:

Great blog. Following along with people's blogs/vlogs has become quite a hobby for me. Always surprised that I feel a tiny bit of sadness when the blogs come to an end. Definitely takes me back!

So you got to "enjoy" the lovely weather in the first couple of weeks :cool:.

Actually, I loved the temperatures, but all the rain was :mad:

Did we meet each other????

I focused my blog on my photos... because a picture is worth a...
(Plus I have an Engineering degree and writing is not my strong suit :cool:)

Glad it brought back some memories... Mission Accomplished :)
