How happy are my feet to have completed the #Santiago de Compostela, walking 272 Km’s on the Santiago de Camino #Pilgrimage trail! I struggled with two hospital visits for bronchitis and blisters, but so many people had their challenges. We were all in this together. It was a journey filled with so much pain and so much love and laughter. I feel like a true pilgrim and this was an accomplishment I shall never forget. And neither will my feet. Just got my certificate. Now for the well deserved Albariño with my other wine pilgrims! #stjamesway#caminodesantiago#camino#winepilgrims
Getting the #credentials stamped on the Camino de Santiago and wearing the #shell that you see all #pilgrims wearing on their backpacks. I love the camaraderie. My feet are so killing me, but we’re all in this together, watching for one another. #caminodesantiago#camino
Buen #Camino! On the Camino de Santiago #pilgrimage trail in #Spain, also known as St. James Way. The best part is the people you meet along the way, the stories you hear, the friendships you develop in this joined journey as everyone heads towards Santiago de Compostela. Everyone has their own personal reasons for doing this pilgrimage. #CaminodeSantiago
I’m following the Camino de Santiago #pilgrimage trail, otherwise known as St.James Way in #Spain.It’s been around since medieval times, made famous by the movie “The Way.” It’s also a UNESCO world heritage site. I like a good pilgrimage, it’s good to walk thoughtfully and in the moment. And there’s a wonderful array of people to meet. Here on this hill #pilgrims leave a rock to symbolize unburdening, mine was given to me from a friend who survived the earthquake in Haiti. I hope to unburden myself of this lingering bronchitis, although the antibiotics seem to finally be kicking in! Just clocked in 17 miles, or 42,517 steps today. #CaminodeSantiago#theway@natgeocreative#stjamesway
I am sidetracked while walking the Camino de #Santiago in #Spain. After being treated in #Astorga hospital for a bad case of bronchitis they want me to stay longer but I decide to forge ahead armed with antibiotics and an inhaler.
As I continue along on my #journey through ominous skies I realize that my whole life is a series of obstacles- and overcoming them.
You don’t always get to choose the #path of your #pilgrimage, sometimes it chooses you. #caminodesantiago#camino#theway
