Camino Things…

In my journal I kept track of a few small lists. Things of the Camino that I felt were worth remembering.


Life Lessons and Thoughts:

  • I was just as grateful to see a sign saying I was headed the wrong way as I was arrow on treeseeing an arrow indicating I was on the right path.
  • One step at a time, don’t go to extremes to correct something. (After feeling a little warm and taking off my jacket, scarf, and long sleeved shirt, then promptly feeling too cold)

Sounds of the Camino:  

  • Roosters!
  • Barking dogs 🙁
  • Birds 🙂
  • Fireworks (all day on Easter and the next day) – we claimed it was for our anniversary
  • Church bells 🙂
  • Waterfalls and springs

Things we want to have:
