“My bags are packed … and I’m ready to go …”

Hey, isn’t there a song along those lines?

In just 3 sleeps, I head out for my big adventure. An adventure that I have been pondering, planning, preparing and training for – for a very long long time. 


Wednesday early afternoon, I begin a four flight trek, and overnight stay in Spain, then a bus ride to Sarria – to begin this life altering, self discovery, planning my future, praying for my loved ones, and working on ‘myself’, on how to be less of an introvert. Be more decisive, and to become more independent. 

There are so many things rattling around in my head at this moment. 

  1. Am I physically ready for this challenge?
  2. Can I walk up to 15 miles a day?
  3. Will I be safe alone?
  4. Will this be everything I have been imagining it to be?
  5. Will I be strong enough to complete this?
  6. To prove that I CAN do this?
  7. Will this help me to be more confident and direct?

    I know who I am .. at least, at this stage, I think I know who I am. THIS is one of the big questions I will be pondering. “How do I want to live the second half of my life? ”

    There is so much more that I want in my life,  and I am not talking about ‘things or ‘stuff”. 

    My hope is that this experience will help define that for me. To help rid me of my ‘stuff’ and ‘burdens’. 

    Then again, this may turn out to be completely different than what I expect. 


    For today, I am ready to go, armed with many questions and prayers. 

    Buen Camino …
