Thinking of my next camino

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S. (Thomas Stearns) Eliot (1888–1965)

I read these words today and felt they expressed my feelings about walking from Santiago de Compostela (SdC) to Saint Jean Pied de Port (SJPP) next year. Starting in Sdc and walking in reverse along the way will be like a tape on rewind. How will it feel to be in SJPP and for it be the final day of my walk? A pilgrim friend, Sarah, is walking from SdC to Toulouse, France at the moment. Check out her Blog:

I am not able to walk in Spain until September 2011 as I have a prior commitment for April/May. Walking in the autumn will be a new experience for me and I am looking forward to seeing the changed countryside.

Daydreaming about Spain and the camino ....


  1. Hello there! Glad you're back from Louisiana. Hoping that your right knee is still doing well and you are behaving yourself. from your PT, jeannette

  2. Ah it's the torturer! Right knee is pain free and great. I walked around Houston Zoo yesterday with no pain in the right knee but got stopped by the left knee. See you for the left :))
