What makes you come back to the Camino?

Come back

The question was:

I randomly read about the Camino in a book in spring 2006 and jumped on to walk to Santiago de Compostela and onwards to Finisterre without any preparations or knowledge about the route what so ever. I had the most wonderful time of my life in so many ways I can not even describe, going from having my cup of live half empty to always being at least half full. Ever since I have longed to come back, but because of creating a family with a husband and two twin girls I haven’t had the chance. This fall I will finally have the time to walk a short Camino (10 days from SJPP) and I am sooooo happy! People keep asking me why I would want to go back and walk the same route again, when there are so many beautiful places in the world. I try to explain that walking the Camino differs from a normal hike, but have difficulties to put words on why my heart is aching to return.

So, I thought I would ask you guys. What makes you come back to the Camino over and over again and how do you think your second camino differed from your first one?
