- Camino(s) past & future
- Camino Frances 2017 (2018)
My husband and I started in Pamplona last year and skipped many sections due to knee problems and my allergic reaction problem. We made it to Santiago though and walked the 100 km from Sarria. I had mixed feelings about going back and walking the sections we skipped due to my persistent allergy problem. But when I recall the pleasure of walking and meeting fellow pilgrims I decided to throw caution to the wind and just do it. So i’m returning (alone) for 2 weeks starting in Estella and walking as far as possible. If I don’t do it now who knows when. I always wondered why people keep returning to the Camino and now I know why. There is truly something magical about it. The infrastructure of alburgues, paths, and cafes is incredible. I am nervous but eager for this adventure. I also feel so much more prepared and knowledgeable. But I have to say the first time going and really knowing nothing — so much out of our comfort zone— made us realize that there is so much satisfaction and pleasure in traveling this way.
