Ten Things Learned on the Camino

We have only been back from our adventure on the Camino Primitivo for just over a week and the experiences are still settling in around us. But from some jot notes hastily scribbled on the road, in no particular order, here are ten of the many things learned on the Camino.

  1. Uphill is better than downhill.
  2. A guard goose can be as menacing as its canine counterpart.
  3. Sometimes all you can do it put one foot in front of the other.
  4. A little cloud cover can go a long way.
  5. Always pack much more water than you think you will need. And then pack some more.
  6. Where English and Spanish words fail, French just might be the solution.
  7. Siesta is a highly underrated concept in North American society.
  8. Accepting your limitations is not the same as admitting defeat.
  9. The smallest among us can emerge as the mightiest.
  10. What you don’t walk today, you will walk tomorrow.
