All through Camino Dreaming we invite folks to leave comments and questions. This blog post is a good place to do that. You can comment on any blog post, but this one is for general comments, rather than ones specific to another post.
The Hospitalero Newsletter is requesting submissions about the experiences volunteers had last summer. So, I was looking through our photos and decided to share some with you.
We are looking forward to the party tonight. Paella is in the making. Spanish wine is ready. Autumn herbal teas are cooling in the refrigerator. Photos of the Camino Frances are rolling on the big screen, and of the Le Puy Route in France and the alternative Via de La Plata route in Spain are rolling on the digital picture frame. All we need now are folks to share stories about their experiences. Our fictional characters, Bert and Helen, might share some of their stories too.
Reading from the Beginning to the End
If you'd prefer to read about our Camino trips from their beginning points to our return, rather than blog-style . . . from the most recent post backwards in time . . . go to the section labeled Our Caminos.
