Santiago de Compostela – the Credencial (credential)

Posted by on Nov 11, 2012 in Adventure Travel, Camino | Comments Off on Santiago de Compostela – the Credencial (credential)

I’ve been organizing my office and I came across the Credencial I received when I arrived at Santiago de Compostela (Spain) June 7, 2012. It was quite an important day for me–I started in Spain and I’d been walking for over a month to arrive in Santiago. Somehow, in 2012, it was MUCH more difficult that when I walked the Camino across Spain in 2006. Less fit? Plumper? Six years older? I’m not exactly sure what made it more difficult, but this time it was. This year I SUFFERED. Here’s a suffering picture to refresh your memory:   Here’s a happier picture when I finally arrived in Santiago:   And here are pics of my Credencial: Each albergue (hostel specifically for pilgrims) where you stay along the way has their own stamp. Each pilgrim carries a credencial that he/she...

Signs Along the Way

Posted by on Jul 5, 2012 in Camino | Comments Off on Signs Along the Way

Imagine packing up and leaving everything behind. Imagine concentrating on your most basic, essential needs. Imagine that you have only one thing to do all day long. Imagine that your one and only job is to take extremely good care of yourself. Imagine leaving all your technology behind (if you choose). No cell phones ringing, no GPSes beeping, no emails dinging. Imaging walking 12-18 miles every day, surrounded by like-minded people, all with a common goal. Imagine what realizations you can have about your own life, your place in the world, your patterns (as you intentionally place yourself outside of them for a period of time.) Welcome to your Camino Experience. <> I could go on and on about  my Camino experience, and perhaps I may in a future book. But life, as usual, continues on, and since I...
