Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage

My 450 mile walk across Northern Spain following the Camino de Santiago Frances Trail.   The Camino taught me many lessons, some funny, some painful, and some blissful.  Get the 5 week play by play of what the trail was like, the lessons I learned, the people I met , as they happened in this long distance hiking story series.

“Most of this week I felt like a cartoon character – the one with the big cloud over my head with rain pouring down just on me. However, instead of one cloud following me wherever I went along the Camino, there were multiple clouds all lined up and circling like planes at O’Hare airport trying to get their ‘ok’ to land. I could see them all off in the distance eyeing me and sometimes even taunting me. I imagined Mother Nature with a headset on sitting up in the air traffic controller’s booth communicating with each rain cloud. One after the other would come in for a landing leaving me soaked, cold, and frustrated.”

Follow my journey from the beginning!
