While learning about the Camino de Santiago in 2008 it became clear that Santiago de Compostela, Spain was considered the primary “destination” of the Camino experience. As metaphysical as it may sound, the destination for me is wherever I meet myself. The Camino has a way of showing me what I had just spent my everyday life ignoring with success. The Camino is my opportunity to get quiet, get as real as I ever will, and look deep into what is not working for me. At the same time celebrate who I am, warts and all. This is only a personal assessment of Camino Walks.

A Note From Nancy: Our 2022 Camino Walk has “ended” but the experience will go on and be processed for a long time. This is the last posting of this specific blog.

I will post a daily photo or photos on Instagram until we arrive home later this month. Instagram: jaminmama

  1. Your journey has been inspirational and educational. Your personal resolve in this undertaking is truly amazing. I have enjoyed your posts and wonderful photos. Congratulations on your well deserved success.

  2. Congratulations on your walk! What a wonderful experience you may have had. I enjoyed the photos and the comments. The spiritual experience is all about “be here now.” Lots of love to you and Vern and thanks for allowing us to tag along. Safe travels.

  3. Safe travels home. It was an honor following you, Vern, and the two fellow travelers. Thanks for sharing. This seems to have been a challenging adventure.

    • Thanks Joe! We thought the 1,060 mile walk from Le Puy-en-Velay France was tough…….this Camino was half the mileage with less resources…..just my opinion. I always walked to be removed from my comfort zone. This walk removed me from my comfort zone and Broke Me Open.

  4. Congratulation, I am happy with you that you arrived in Santiago de C. Bravo! Enjoy your positive feeling.
    Best regards to the “quartett”!

  5. Dear pilgrims,
    so finally you have reached your destination.
    I love the photo of Vern with the dog. And it’s great to see him smiling when you reached Santiago di Compostela.
    Have a good time before you travel back home, Brigitte
