Almost all of my time off for the past few months has been working on getting ready for the Camino. Of course, I was still rushing around right up until the last minute, including getting a haircut (from my dad) less than an hour before leaving for the airport.
I can’t remember the last time I flew out of, or into, Dayton during the daylight, so it was fun to actually be able to see things that I recognized. I saw Good Sam, and waved to everybody, but since everyone I work with is in the basement, no one waved back.
Now I’m sitting in Newark, waiting for my overnight flight to Madrid. When I get in tomorrow, I take another flight to Lyon, then catch a train to Le Puy en Velay, which is where I will begin the walking part of my Camino. Everyone’s Camino begins before they actually start walking. Mine began in April.
I guess I’d better go get in line. Tomrrow in Spain! And France!
I’m glad things are going well.
So exciting! After your cramped overnight flight, your legs will be itching to walk a thousand miles. 🙂
Hooray for Dad haircuts! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures! ❤
Kathy McDougall told me you are on the Camino, as I am. I just checked into a room in Najera. I am assuming you are also having a great time.
Fabulous!! Mostly a great time. I’ve had a rough couple of days, but that’s to be expected. It will be awhile before I make it to Spain. Have a wonderful time!!
Hi, Betsey! So glad I found your blog. Where are you? We’re back Stateside….much to our chagrin. Our time on the Camino was simply not long enough!
