Traveling allows me to see the world through my eyes

2014 Camino de Santiago

“You don’t choose a life Dad,
you live one.”
~ Emilio Estevez from the Movie The Way

The path to my next “journey” in life is now very clear. I’ve decided that it is time to fulfill a long awaited dream to walk the Camino de Santiago (well, at least 100 miles of it so I can earn my Compostela).

For a long while now, I’ve been very anxious about returning to Spain and the bonus of doing the Camino is in fact that a majority of the walk is located in a very beautiful part of Spain.

I will document my journey that I’m about to embark on.  I’ll include posts about my training, equipment, resources used and my trip planning notes. I hope that keeping this online journal will keep me focused and motivated.

This section of my travel website will be a work in progress so feel free to check back.

Buen Camino!

History gives me knowledge, a deeper understanding for the present and hope for the future! Family & Friends warms my heart! And Travel . . . well Travel keeps me HAPPY!
