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.

… i left work early and ended up in a cemetery …

St Mary’s Cemetery Minneapolis, Minnesota

St. Mary’s Cemetery began in 1873. It is a historic cemetery with meandering hills, towering trees, majestic monuments and family mausoleums.

Please give me a little latitude, I have not forgotten.

Hang in there…

I do promise that I am working hard to edit thousands of photos and researching them. Unfortunately for me, I cannot just post one photo. I need to know the whole story or put a sequence of photos together.

As it gets closer to being buried in the snow, I will be taking less photos and posting more.

I was amazed to find out just how many cemeteries are within a 20 mile radius.

Also I have been spending much of my extra time planning my trip to France and dreaming of all I photograph 💭
