Learning about the Camino

For me, one of the neatest aspects of taking on our camino adventure is how it stimulates learning. First of all, finding out what is the country is like, it’s climate, terrain, culture, food, lodging, etc. Then, what does one need to bring along to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.

Interestingly enough, I find the planning of huge vacations or events can be just as much fun as the experience itself. Knowing, of course, that we are sure to forget something or get lost somewhere. But in our past travel experiences, the times we were “lost” or forgot something important seem to be the most memorable experiences we’ve had. It sounds funny, but it is true.

When learning about the camino, we have found that one of the most effective ways to learn is through those who have already experienced it. Why try to reinvent the wheel? There are many camino blogs out there, but I will use our blog to highlight those exceptional blogs where we have learned quite a bit.

Here is a link to a great blog:

    I think that is why i usually don’t plan much of anything when we take vacations…just see what comes up-what kind of adventures we can have.

    • I bet the Camino will provide a lot of unexpected challenges for us. We will do all of the necessary planning (like proper equipment, spanish phrase guides, maps) but not get too carried away. The good news is we do not have to worry about getting it done in x number of days. We will just take each day as it comes.
