    IMG_0619.JPG This cartoon appeared in the local paper and it immediately made me think of the Camino! We're all out there for different reasons! In fact, we're probably out there for multiple reasons! The sign for wine reminded me of my brief, but pleasant, stop at the Fuente de Vino at Irache just outside Estella.

    Wily, great cartoon and brings fond memories of Fuente de Vino! - which is the photo I use for Camino Forum. We left the albergue around 7 am and arrived at the wine fountain around 8:15 am or so. A bit early for lots of wine, but my wife and I both sampled the wine, took a photo, then continued on. We crossed over into La Rioja the following day and that is one of the most enjoyable regions on the camino. Thanks for the memory! Bob

    Hey Bob - Yes, indeed, great memories at the Fuente de Vino! It's just one of those spots pilgrims look forward to reaching. It was great fun just people watching and hanging out there a bit. It's the one time I actually used my scallop shell for a sample. Everyone seems to really enjoy themselves there, not because of the free wine, but because it's one of those Camino highlights. I, too, have my photo, like you, to remember the experience. Buen Camino!

    Its true though! We all do the Camino for varying individual reasons and they dont have to necessarily satisfy anyone else. In my opinion you don't necessarily either need a concrete reason for doing the pilgrimage. Many people learn and become transformed on the trail. If you think about it it's a bit offensive to evaluate someone's choice of motivation.
