After 3 years in the planning the first steps of first of 1000k have been taken. I can’t help wondering if there is some underlying reason, not yet discovered, that I am doing this Pilgrimmage walk. It is said that everyone has their own reason. Some know it at the start, some discover it along the way. But whatever the reason it will become clear by the time that last step is taken into Santiago de Composta. So the Camino myth goes.
For me, I have no idea of any deep meaningful or spiritual reason for deciding to fly more than 16000ks to undertake this walk.
As far as I am concerned my reason for walking 1000k from The south of France, and across Spain to the waters edge is simple. Fitness. I am doing this walk for fitness, & to challenge myself a little. But at the same time I will be keeping my mind open and ready to accept any lightbulb moments that come to me along the way
