I’ve been struggling with a new computer since arriving at home from my walk. To bring everyone up-to-date, I’ve been walking quite a lot…12-20 km/day often down to the beach at Huntington Beach, I’ve also been working on Spanish with my Duolingo app, plus starting a small consulting business. I haven’t given up on writing a book about my trip, but I’m admittedly off to a slow start.
Here are a couple of declarations to start the New Year:
1) I will have my book written by the end of April.
2) I will create a short Camino group walk for this fall. This will be a walk of around 100 km which may take as long as 2 weeks to complete. I plan this walk for people who are either just starting to walk, or want some motivation to begin a walking routine, and people who would like to walk more, but need some motivation. This will be a walk for both men and women. I would like to make this a 3 week adventure with a week spent in southern Spain training and learning some Spanish prior to starting the Camino.
I’ll post more on this later, but if you are what I have labeled an “Old Guy” or a woman of equivalent age…or if you know of someone who fits that definition, please consider making a Camino with me THIS YEAR. Walking in northern Spain is Great! If walking a Camino is not on your bucket list….it should be. I believe that if you can get yourself up to walking 4-5 miles a day, you can walk 7-10 km per day and complete a walk to Santiago. Not only will this be a great experience, but many people have found this discipline to make amazing changes to their overall health and happiness.
So, there it is! I have put it out there. There is a lot to do, and I will welcome feedback, offers to join me, or just encouragement.
Adios from California.
