    My son and I purchased our plane tickets today for our French camino. We fly out of Texas on the 24th of April this year. We are both getting very anxious for this trip of a life time.

    Congratulations. Our ticket purchasing date was basically two sleepless nights for me. We had set the deadline date for buying plane tickets, which thus became the last night to "back out." I hardly slept a wink the night before in anticipation. Tickets were purchased and so I thought at least I will be able to sleep tonight. Wrong! I slept about two hours and then woke up, too excited to go back to sleep. Believe me, it will seem like a long wait but then suddenly the day is here. Enjoy!

    I recently purchased my tickets for CP - did the same thing... but was up all night worrying I won't have enough time to train, refine packing list, etc.

    I've just bought my ticket to Biarritz for 29th August so am committed! Wasn't worried before, as I've done it before, but that was 3 years ago....
    And now I'm scared!

    Please to hear that you are returning to walk another Camino. Try not be scared, your second camino will be so completely different and you will have many new, experiences and meeting. walking, sharing with fellow pilgrims from all over the world. Remember ,the most amazing/ memorial experiences will happen when you least expecting them and in ways you will never imagine.

    I will be in Spain from 24th March to 16th April opening the CSJ Albergue Gaucelmo in Rabanal de Camino and then 1st 2 weeks tour of hospital duty'. I am looking forward to working and meeting the pilgrims from all over the world

    Carpe Diem & live the moment

    Armorel.....I like THAT scared feeling, it seems to push you a bit outside of your comfort zone! Someone once told me that if it excites you AND scares you, you should probably do it! Enjoy your planning......

    Really Hinds? That was the kind of talk that made me jump out of airplanes for a living!

    I did it once and badly broke my ankle. The jump was fun, the landing wasn't. Only jumped that one time.

    CW, I wouldn't want that feeling all of the time. And especially the raw courage and bravery that goes with that while serving your country, which I deeply respect.

    Unkie, the landing is what would concern me too! That was once on my bucket list....but found more enjoyable ways for adventure!
