After well over a year's planning, I'm just four days away from departing for Europe to walk the Camino de Santiago. I'm giving myself 37 days to walk the 789 km (490 mile) pilgrimage from St Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago de Compostella, Spain. I've spent countless hours deciding what gear to take, which luxuries I can afford to put on my back. My initial goal was 10% of my body weight but just couldn't go quite that light. My greatest luxury item is my iPad. It will be my main communication with family and friends, and I hope to post from the trail.
So this morning, I'm testing a blogging app to see how easy it will be to post pictures from the Camino from my iPad.
This is a metal sculpture on the Camino at Alto del Perdon depicting the variety of pilgrims who have walked the Camino through the centuries. I should get to it my fourth or fifth day walking.
I'm getting excited!
