    Hey Parksville - Really like the post/blog! How brown and dry it was in the first photo caught me a bit by surprise! Hydrate! I'll look forward to reading your Wednesday summaries. Buen Camino!

    Hello Parksville, I just finished reading week 3 and thanks for sharing. It is great that you and your husband can experience the adventure together. Your notes bring me back to wonderful memories. I have a video of the time at Cruz de Ferro and my tears were flowing as I placed my small stone from home. Also we stayed overnight LaVirgen Del Camino and the albergue was great and the sactuary was beautiful. Safe travels. Maya

    Thanks for the Blog, it really is wonderful to hear other people's experiences of the Camino....so different and yet a lot the same. The joy in the walk itself, the beautiful scenery, meeting people and having time alone with your thoughts and each other and the simple things like a cup of cafe con leche. I'm counting the days to getting back on the Camino.

    Enjoy the rest of your Camino.

    Greg

    Thanks, Greg - I agree that each of our Camino experiences are unique, but also share so much in common. Thanks for checking out my posts. Enjoy your next Camino -- I hope that you get back soon!
