Lucky girl - she is headed overseas for 9 weeks !! She will miss a whole Melbourne winter. I am very envious but the main reason for my intense jealousy is she is off to walk the Camino de Santiago. She will probably cover on foot 800 kms over 35 days, carrying her pack, sleeping in hostels en route and bandaging her blisters.
She will commence in France and finish up in Spain , an intense and tough personal pilgrimage. It is certainly one way to clear the head of 21st century fol de rol and one I am very keen to embark upon, sooner rather than later. Every time I head out for a walk I will be thinking of her putting one foot after another and wishing her Godspeed .
