- Time of past OR future Camino
- Many in the past and, God willing; more to come
I despair.@VNwalking isn’t that the saddest part of what is happening to our beloved Camino. It was always supposed to be a challenge, it was always supposed to be a bit scary. A long walk in a country of which we knew little or perhaps too much if we’d ever paid any attention to European history. A long walk; down to the chemists is a long way as the blessed Douglas Adams had it.
And now we find that Camino has to be “safe”, safe from all challenges: a safe space full of comfy beds, yummy meals, perfect families of random people who all think just like you and your own private flushing toilet.
Last time out I was gonna complain to the cruise director but they wos hiding in their cabin screaming “why, why, why?”
There’s nothing wrong with a bit of research (albeit numerous recent posters seem to be avoiding that) but going to the ‘I have to be certain’ level and asking ‘how do avoid the possibility of this non-life-threatening inconvenience’ is really rubbish (I assumed I couldn’t say ‘crap’; we’ll see).
There is always the option of booking a cruise. You’ll travel further, see more countries and have someone to complain to when your dinner’s a few minutes late. And if there are dogs, they’ll be in the kennels.
