Not exactly sure (yet) why I feel the desire to do this? I keep telling people it reflects mid-life uncertainty, as I ponder the next stage of my life. I wavered for a while on whether to embark on this trek across Spain. But something kept calling to me, take the journey.
First, I bought a pair of trail shoes and broke them in exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan. Next, a backpack. And then slowly started gathering other supplies, thinking all the while this stuff could be returned if I change my mind. I hesitated with the purchase of the airline ticket. Once that was taken care of, there was no turning back. In the back of my mind, I knew all along I would make this journey. If I didn’t, I knew I would always think, what if? Refuse to live my life with what ifs, so here I go. I’m off…
Look forward to sharing my experience with you along the way (check out my Instagram page for photos) and blogging about it upon my return.
To all my fellow pilgrims who will be making the journey, Buen Camino! See you in Santiago de Compostela.
