April 9th will be the one year anniversary of the start of my Camino. My Spanish journey has been on my mind a lot lately; I think about it with 80 percent great happiness and 20 percent regret that I’m not able to do another pilgrimage this year.
Coincidentally a friend I met on the trip just sent me a link to a series of pieces being produced by a crew in Brussels. The crew was on the Camino the same time I was and in fact they interviewed a number of my walking companions. This particular episode covers the leg from St. Jean Pied de Port to Roncevalles, SJPP being the spot from where I began my trip.
Seeing this video brought it all back…I recognized every turn in the road, every building, every mountain. I even recognized a couple of the people. Soon I think will come the episode that includes my friends. I will post that piece here once it airs.
