Be back soon!

I’m currently back in the states and sorting through my photos and notes ….

Soon  

2016 .. 

the Camino de Santiago – Paris – London – Toulouse 

76 days …..

It is precisely 76 days until I travel to Madrid then on to Sarria to walk the Camino de Santiago.

My new backpack …

My planned route, Sarria to Santiago. Santiago to Muxia. Muxia to Finisterre -“the end of the world”.

I have been planning (dreaming) for years, training for many, many months. It has been tough and a quite the education of the inter workings of my body. I am not an athlete, and quite frankly, not much of an exerciser. But I have to say .. there is something so calming and tranquil about wandering through the nature trails by my home.

My training trails

I plan to keep a journal and a photo journal of the things that I have learned, the wisdom I will surely learn and of the many people I hope to meet along the way.

After my solo journey, I will take a breather to process what I have come to learn in Paris, London and Toulouse. Probably not the best places for down time – but what can I say, I left my heart in Paris 2 years ago and I am too close NOT to go back.

So, if you have never been on this magnificent journey of pain and self discovery, you can follow along with me ..without the pain.

I would be interested in hearing from those that have made this journey, their place of origin and if their life changed upon their re-entry back in to their daily life.

The Beauty of Arizona awaits…

Time to start planning my adventure to Sedona and the Grand Canyon that is just a short 2 weeks away.

A little R & R in beautiful Sedona followed by a hike in the Grand Canyon, a short road trip to Dallas…then a flight home.

The beauty awaits. I have an empty journal and a empty SIM card!

I always dream of my trips to Europe, but I have to say, even though It doesn’t have the architecture that I have come to love, I will have God’s beauty to inspire me!
