It’s been a month since I returned from the Camino. My feet and ankles weren’t in the prettiest of conditions when I finished walking, and I think I’ll have awkward tan lines forever, but it’s the kind of thing I’d do again in a heartbeat.
I don’t think I had any giant life revelations along the way, but it was liberating getting back to the basics. My day to day concerns consisted of walking, eating, showering, and getting enough sleep. All while meeting the most wonderful and lively individuals along the way.
I also relished the hours I walked alone. I needed time to myself to think, or to not think at all, and just re-energize after a difficult year. A draining year that has led D-Man and I to make the decision to move from Spain to the UK, in the hopes that job prospects will be better for him there.
But that’s something I might write more about later. I have tons of catching up to do and plenty more to share. For now, here are just a few of my favorite moments from El Camino de Santiago. I hope you’ll enjoy.
