Now it's my wife's turn to walk the Camino

Just left on her 2nd leg of the Camino Frances this evening. She will be walking from Burgos to Astorga (or Ponferrada). Her 1st leg was this spring from St. Jean to Burgos.

Sharing the experience of the Camino

I received this in my mailbox (no, not the electronic one, the real one) today. Manfred, a German pilgrim whom I had met and walked together for more than half of Camino Via de la Plata in 2008 had sent this to me.

It is a copy of his pilgrim credentials and a DVD of his walk of the Camino del Norte in the summer of 2010.

I have been out action on the Camino since, but the way still beckons me, especially when the Camino del Norte is the final Camino I planned to walk in Spain.

I need find the time and opportunity, not so easy when you still have to hold down a job. When? 2011? 2012? No later than that....

Thanks Manfred, for sharing your Camino with me. While watching the video, it is as if I am also there (in spirit). No one appreciates the video more than another pilgrim. There is something about the Camino that cuts through people of all culture, language and age.
