- Year of past OR future Camino
- Francés x 5, Le Puy x 2, Arles, Tours, Norte, Madrid, Via de la Plata, Portuguese, Primitivo
Since I've left, I've dreamed of myself walking the Camino every night. I plan on going back next year - having learned from my mistakes.
Don't give up on this. I do think many people don't take enough time at the start to get oriented. Jet lag, culture shock, lack of sleep, unfamiliarity - they all can make us irrational prisoners. We now take a stopover somewhere along the long plane trip from Australia, and spent a night or two in our European entry port in a pre-booked hotel, then take a leisurely train trip to our walking start, and a short first day of sightseeing and walking, usually with accommodation booked for that first night. Maybe it is just age but I like to ease into things these days.
