Our Camino - Pretrip

Hey there, it looks like I am off on another Camino. In 2017, I walked the Camino Frances, a 500-mile walk across the top of Spain to Santiago de Compostella, the resting place of Saint James. It wasn't easy, but it was fun. In 2019, I walked part of the Camino Portuguese, a 200-mile plus walk from Porto, Portugal to Santiago. This one wasn't as enjoyable, partly because I got lost a couple times, and party because I didn't make any friends. I was planning walking the Camino del Norte last year, but COVID intervened. My wife heard about my plans, and said she'd like to go with me. Since the Camino del Norte is a bit less crowded, but a lot more rugged, I suggested we do the Camino Frances. Well, after a lot of planning and a lot of trial walks, we are off! Today we take a flight from GSP Greenville, to Charlotte, to JFK, and finally Paris, France. We will spend a couple of days in Paris sightseeing, then take a train down to the southern part of France, at St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, the typical start for the Camino Frances. Then begins the 500-mile, 35 plus days of walking! My next blog will be from Paris, France.
