    I want to bring your attention to this Camino blog on the website of the Tampa Bay Times. A 29-year-old woman from St. Petersburg, Florida, just completed her Camino on Thursday (8-3-17). She wrote a daily blog post with text and photos every day she was on the Camino. It's very down to earth and really gives you a good feel for what it's like to walk the entire Camino Frances, from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Hint: Wine plays an important role on the Camino, to the point that one of the albergues (inns) has a mantra of "No Vino, no Camino."

    The link below takes you to the Day 1 post, from which you can follow her entire 32-day pilgrimage.

    A saying that I kept hearing was “El Vino Tinto es el Gasolina del Peregrino” – And I had to agree :)

    Marching across Northern Spain powered by El Vino Tinto and Ibuprofen! Worked for me.
