On August the 5th 2015 my girlfriend and I, along with another couple will travel from Florida, USA to France to start the Camino. It actually starts in the Pyrenees but then after one day crosses over into Spain.
I had never heard about the Camino until I saw this movie a year or so ago with Martin Sheen called "The Way" directed by his son Emilio Estavez and said after watching it that one day I would do this, a bucket list sort of thing. Well its going to happen very shortly.
Depending on ones fitness the Camino takes 30 some days to walk...490 miles.
This is such an out of the box vacation, if you can call it that..... I just dont know what to expect and thats probably the point. I am excited to return to Europe where I grew up between the UK and Majorca, Spain.
Anyone here walked the Camino, heard about it or ever thought about doing it?
