  1. I read somewhere an excellent idea. Plan a year in advance, at least. Then declare you intention to do the Camino. Explain to your employer that it’s a pilgrimage and that it’s important for you to do. You might even give them a little information about it. And then throughout that year, keep them updated on your preparation for going. In some way, they also become involved / invested in your going. They may become excited for you, not making a negative big deal about your taking such a large block of time away. They may actually be encouraging. It helps to make sure that the employer doesn’t suffer too much for your absence (being careful not to worry too much that your job will not be there when you return or that they’ve become accustomed to not having you there.) Then, if you don’t mind doing it, while you are on the Camino, periodically send them updates about how it’s going, perhaps sending some pictures.

    The point of view presented in what I read is that we must make the Camino our priority and make it work. I agree. Buen camino!

  2. i am selfemployed and hier people to work for me. I met many teachers though:) Some are even students and some split he walk and walk a bit every year.
