Just returned from walking Porto-Santiago, and find my dreams have taken on a camino-like quality, where I am roaming over territory and sleeping in unfamiliar places. Anyone else find that their unconscious is continuing to walk the camino?

Only for the last three years.

No, not really. Although after 5.5 months on my thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, once I got home, I had to quash the feeling that I needed to go outside to pee. :)

Along with 4 friends we completed the Porto to Santiago route on September 27th. Been home in Canada since the 30th and I believe I have only had one night so far where I didn't dream about being on some kind of Camino!

Interestingly, even though "roaming" dreams are pretty common for me, even prior to doing my Caminos, I did not dream AT ALL on the Camino this past month. The minute I returned, they started back up again. It seems that, one way or another, I am going to roam!
