Looking back — Camino

by | Mar 14, 2018 | in the Spirit | 0 comments

Four and a half years ago — in September 2013, I joined a friend to walk the Via Frances (Camino de Santiago de Compostela) in Spain — we did start in St. Jean Pied de Port, France, but by day 2 we had made our way to Roncesvalles, Spain by crossing Napoleon’s Pass through the Pyrenees. As I would check in each afternoon, my husband would put a pin on a google map to mark my progress. I’ve recently enjoyed clicking on the pins and trying to remember the Auberge where we stayed and the events of each day. Some are vivid, some, not so much. Anyway — the map is here so you can see our stops as we travelled west across northern Spain.

I hope to be able to walk again — maybe from SJPP or maybe from Portugal. There are many ways to make the journey. It’s the journey that makes the difference.

  • Perennial Wisdom
    As I press on my journey, I find myself caught between not fitting comfortably into a given tradition and feeling connected to many traditions. My path seems to be as a Christian, carrying the backpack with a brand name of  Roman Catholic. The road is a winding one with hills and valleys, paved road and […]
