I’m currently back in the states and sorting through my photos and notes ….
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.
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.
Buen Camino …
It is precisely 76 days until I travel to Madrid then on to Sarria to walk the Camino de Santiago.
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.
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.
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.
