Walking a camino is often a life changing experience.. being enlightened and taxed both physically and spiritually.. experiencing new places, new friends, new feelings that maybe you haven't felt for years or even decades.. what was the one thing that you took from your camino.. the one (perhaps) life changing feeling/event/moment that you find yourself telling others about?
For me it was the discovery of "second breakfast"..
Obviously I've heard of breakfast, but a second one? Praise the lord.

Yep, he fooled me for a quick minute, as well! I don't care as he gave me an opportunity to "choose" to be a bit serious!

For me, it was the overwhelming and all pervasive sense that I am part of something FAR bigger when I am in Spain and doing anything Camino related. It is a good feeling...

Millions of people have done this over the millenia, and untold thousands have perished on The Way. I can sense their spirits as I walk...

Having an overwhelming sense of God’s presence, knowing first of all that the Camino is a holy path, blessed by thousands walking it over the centuries, but also feeling His presence in the people I encountered, listening to their stories, sharing in the meals and taking time to pray along the way.

@andywild, your post has shades of a LOTR fan. I wish I was tech savvy enough to post a GIF of that scene...

That'd be in the form of grande cafe con letche and chocolate croissant
