Why are you walking the Camino?

That is a question I find myself asking and answering on a frequent basis. Most of the answers I hear are ……. Peoples lives are in transition, whether that is losing their job after a few or many years……realizing that all they did was work, and decided to quit and...

The Iron Cross

Yellow Arrow

At one of the many crosses along the camino. The yellow arrow is how every pilgrim finds their way. I am sure I will be looking for them when I get back to Atlanta. The stones are placed by the pilgrims as markers that they were...

Music, food and Paulo Coehlo

After the lovely evening of sleeping under the stars we had a gorgeous walk through Catrojeriz on our way to Boadillo del Camino. Catrojeriz is a town at the foot of a mountain in the shape of a half moon. Adam and I loved it. We found the greatest bar and had some...
