Since I hiked the Overland Track in 2008 I wanted to do something similar wonderful. And the camino (the way of St. James) in spain seemed to be an alternative. It also has this spiritual feel to it, whichs totally appeals to me. When a friend of mine told me she is going to go a part of the way in July I said "oh I always wanted to do that". She asked me, why I wouldn´t come with her. And I asked myself "why wouldn´t I"?
So I checked the flights to Bilbao, booked one and now I am in. I am going the camino! Yeah. Well it is just a part of it, this time. We go for 8 days. From Pamplona to Burgos. That is 200 km (urgh!!!). But I can´t tell you how much I am looking forward doing it. As I didn´t go for a holiday last year, I need that so much. A change! I need a change, a new perspective on things. Not just work. I need walking.Just this.
