    Best wishes for a joyous holiday season with friends and family. May 2019 see you actualize more of your dreams. Travel safe on whichever camino you find yourself whether in Spain or elsewhere.

    Just recently, I learned about the British writer, traveler, and explorer, Benedict Allen. I found this particular sentiment of his most appropriate for why I travel and perhaps you will as well.

    "For me personally, exploration isn't about conquering nature, planting flags or leaving your mark. It's about the opposite: opening yourself up and allowing the place to leave its mark on you..."

    Feliz Navidad y Buen Camino!

    Merry Christmas to all, and especially to the many wonderful pilgrims we met on our Camino. May the joys of the Camino continue to bless you.

    I agree with @Wily's quote.

    All have a great Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

    What a lovely way to greet the New Year... 2019 will mark my first Camino - I am so grateful for this community who has been with me to date and will be walking with me in May.

    Buon Natale and a joyous new year to you all.

    Amy

    Thank you Annie!

    I am counting down the months now... it used to be counting down the years - so glad to finally make it to 2019.

    Happy New year everyone.

    Happy New Year all! Been away with work commitments for a bit, so have some catching up to do here...I am sure Wily and Hinds have been plotting trips and whetting appetites while I was away!
    Amy- enjoy every moment of your trip! I have to say from my experience, I must have packed, unpacked, changed/weighed/sealed, re-weighed and fussed with my kit a hundred times in the last few months before I went. It was worth every step!

    Hey CW - I’m taking your comment as a sporting challege, so here it goes. Christmas dinner in Galicia!

    After reading this article, I now think that travel to Spain for the holiday season is in order as long as I can find a Galician family to enjoy Christmas dinner with. I was sold just seeing the picture of the king scallops! Aunt Aurea and Uncle Pepe, set one or two more places at the dinner table (yes, one of those places will be for Hindsy) ! Buen Provecho!

    Thank you so much for the good wishes - I can't wait for the pack/repack ritual!! Sounds delightful at this time - because it will mean I am that much closer to my Camino....

    Cheers

    On a very wet evening in Tui, we enjoyed a similar feast at a funky little wine bar just around the corner from our albergue.
