This will be our third Camino in the last 24 months. We started our first Camino together (Jim walked a previous Camino with our daughter Emily in 2015) on September 17 of 2021 in San Sebastián Spain. On that venture we walked over 180 miles in 2½ weeks before Jim was unable to manage any more hills and we decided to discontinue the trek due to anxiety about his heart. After being cleared of any further heart concerns we started our second Camino in Pamplona on September 26 of 2022. We completed the Camino Francese in Santiago de Compostela on October 30, covering a distance of over 450 miles. We are now starting our third Camino in Porto Portugal with the goal of walking over 170 miles, two time zones and two countries in two weeks and one day. We are thrilled to have the privilege of walking with our good friends Karen Lewis and Bill Boyle.
What stunning documentation of this amazing journey!!! The pictures are GORGEOUS – makes me want to put on my trail shoes and hike the Camino 🙂 Silly tho it may sound, I am SO proud ( and in AWE ) of the two of you, Pilgrims!
Sending tons of love and hugs to you both, Karen and Bill, and your footwear!!!! 🙂
We truly love you guys but it is hard for us not to covet your excellent adventure .We are still absorbing our memories of trying to keep up with you in Sevilla and London.what wonderful memories you have given us! I think we would probably be at least two towns or 25 churches behind Sandy. Tell Bill hello from a ragamuffin from long ago. I think I wore the grooves out on his blind faith album at Pico St. and I still enjoy listening . We hope to see you soon and as always
Hi Marie, let me know if you receive this. I enjoy all of your posts, but the one this morning wore me out. You have covered so much of this world. All of those driving trips in the Americas are amazing. I have driven across the USA & Canada 20 times but you have seen more than I have.
Our problem is trying to squeeze too much in… just in case we never get back there! My argument since we’ve retired is that we don’t need to travel for a relaxing break – sure that’s what life is like at home !!( well for me anyway – Tom is just semiretired).
We’d love the idea of doing a bit of the Camino one day… but I doubt we’d cover the miles that you can manage…. well done..
