I’m going to be selfish and make this ALL about ME.
There is a list as long as my arm of things I still want to do, mostly related to travelling around the world. I want to see Alaska, I want to see the great wall of China, I want to follow the Tour de France in a camper van, go barging in France, see America, ag, the list is endless. And of course I wish to do all of this with my family.
I have a dream of seeing the 7 wonders of the world, travelling to a destination once a year with the entire family when the kids are bigger. Hey, a girl’s gotta dream!
But mostly, I want to walk the El Camino de Santiago one day when I have/make time. It is also called the Pilgrimage and apparently it is a life-changing experience. I have a friend that has walked some of it and said it was amazing. The whole walk stretches for between 780-900 kms from France to Santiago in Spain, depending on which route you decide to take. If you want to do the whole walk they suggest walking for 30 days, 30 kms a day.
Could you imagine walking 30 kms every day for a month? Could you imagine sleeping in a different place every night for 30 nights? The amount of shoes you would go through? And bear in mind that you would carry everything with you that you need.
Although it is traditionally a pilgrimage Christians make, a lot of people do it as a spiritual journey and I would probably fall into that category. For now.
The other reason I am so intrigued is probably because of Paulo Coelho’s book, The Pilgrimage. Well worth a read.
What do you think. Should we do a MOB Pilgrimage? 😛
