Did you do El Camino de Santiago? I'm doing it in August/September. Anything I couldn't do without knowing? Peace! :)
First, congrats! I am so excited for you that you have the opportunity to walk the Camino :) I was a pilgrim in 2010, and it was absolutely one of the best experiences of my life! Definitely bring less than you think you need, you will be happy to have a lighter pack and there is plenty of opportunity to buy anything you need. Also, this probably goes without saying, but talk to as many people as you can and keep a journal of all your conversations and anything that happens. Looking back, I really wish I had done this! Buen Camino :)
I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books.
Because even though it’s not new years, it’s always a good time to reflect. I will be more open with my emotions and my heart. I will communicate how I’m feeling, when I’m feeling it. And I won’t live a passive life. I think I knew this better at 16 than I do at 21. Le sigh. Live and (re)learn
