I read that quote in the newspaper recently and it reminded me of one of the most profound experiences of my life. I had a different blog post in mind for this week, but the quote inspired me to share this story with you.
A few years ago, my husband and I were browsing through a backpacking shop when the store owner asked where we were planning to travel. At the time, we didn't know. We knew we wanted to explore Europe, but we were still in the planning stages. The store owner said if we wanted an adventure, we should hike 800km along a legendary pilgrim's route in Spain. We took her advice and decided on a whim to hike the Camino de Santiago. We booked our flights, bought a pair of comfortable running shoes, a couple of backpacks and a guide book. Little did we know, this trip was going to change our lives.
The biggest lesson the Camino taught me is that with faith, I can make it through the most challenging, but most beautiful trail that is life.
Buen Camino, friends!
