Hello world. This is a blog about something I am passionate about: the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in northern Spain. While I haven’t walked it yet, there is a strong Camino calling in me that I have to answer to. I am currently in the research phase: exploring route options, meeting pilgrims at events, following Camino adventures on Facebook, attending talks, book signings and film screenings. As it turns out, there is a wealth of Camino information on the web, at my local library, and to my surprise, among my own network of friends.
During this early phase of my Camino journey, I’ll be posting what I learn about the Camino. I will share recommended readings, films, personal essays, links to useful videos, and highlights of Bay Area Pilgrim events. I’ve also added pilgrim interviews about what “the Camino provides,” which is a popular phrase. Eventually when I walk the Camino, I will use this blog to post my daily travel journal.
A pilgrimage of this magnitude doesn’t start when one takes their first step on terra firma in Spain. The journey begins when the dream that has been seeded starts to grow and can no longer be ignored. I am just following my bliss. I look forward to sharing my Camino with you, and hearing about your bliss.
