"'Cos I'm leaving, on a jet-plane. Don't know when I'll be back again ..."
Tomorrow morning, I'm flying to Biarritz, France, and from there I'm walking about 800km to Santiago De Compostela in west Spain. I have no real previous serious walking experience, but I've bought a good pair of shoes, and I've packed light.
For a bit of back story to the walk; the Camino is a pilgrimage of St. James the Apostle. The walk roughly starts where it was thought his body was first buried, and ends in Santiago del Compostela, where his tomb now is. The route we're taking heads along the north cost of Spain (photo above!).
There are lots of reasons I'm doing this walk. I guess I'll decide which one is the right one while I'm over there. For now, here are two articles that have motivated me recently.
And last note - I bought a new camera! So I'll be shooting this whole walk on a lovely Fujifilm X-Pro 1. See you all in a month or two.
