On our way

20130819-200237.jpg

Today we left Salamanca heading towards our starting point for walking the Camino. We are now in Burgos, Spain.

Talk about shedding all worldly possessions.

We left on our trip May 1st with “carry on” backpacks. We are used to traveling “light” but today we embark with “light” minus, minus.

My pack (Bill’s is mostly the same minus the skirt) – skirt, leggings, nylon yoga pants, 2 tank tops, 2 t-shirts, 2 long sleeved shirts, a down shirt, flip flops (for the scuzzy showers) and a pair of Merrill barefoot sneakers. Toothbrush and hair goop – silk sleeping sack to keep those nasty bed bugs away from my skin and a hat. No make up!!

Sounds like a lot when I write it down but it all fits in a backpack the size if a kids school sack. Weight – 10 pounds.

Oh… and this is it for 42 days!!!

The walk starts Friday…

      Thank you. Yesterday and all the crosses was wonderful. The first 2 or 3 days there were multiple crosses memorializing someone who had passed away either or the Camino or they were a Pilgrim.
