I'm starting this blog to keep as a record of my walk on the Camino de Santiago, which I will be starting at the end of March 2009. For those of you who don't know what the Camino is, check out the Wikipedia page here.
I plan to start walking in Pamplona (that's 707 km from Santiago de Compostela, or 440 miles), and I think it will take me about a month. From what I have heard and read about the Camino, I will get to see a lot of Spain, meet a lot of great people, get a lot of blisters, and probably be rained on a few times. I realize it's probably not everyone's idea of a great vacation, but I can't wait. I've already started breaking in my new boots and working on those hip flexors.
I'm so glad to have the chance to do this, and hope you all have fun keeping track of me along the way.
