Hometown: Seattle, Washington USA
I finally took that trip around the world that I always wanted to do. The catalyst was my experience with breast cancer in 2005, which taught me that if you really want to do something, don't wait! As soon as I regained my health (and I'm actually more healthy now than I was before diagnosis), I started planning my trip. I traveled solo for a year, and I met amazing people along the way. My itinerary included Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and Europe. I also added the USA as part of my trip on the way back home.
"Camino Girl" refers to the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James), a 1200 year-old pilgrimage across Northern Spain that spans 500 miles/800 Km. I decided to begin my adventure by walking the Camino for 35 days. It was definitely the right decision... Check out my Spain entries under TRIPS for the photos (scroll down on right sidebar).
Wishing you many adventures on this beautiful planet we share,
