Read this somewhere, it sums up my feelings about my Camino.

Having cut my ties to everything except my backpack for six weeks, I felt free. I caminocan walk at my own pace, stopping when I feel like it. Sometimes, I might linger to admire the landscape or the architecture; more often than not I might walk on, enjoying the reality rather than the view. For six weeks, the past wont matter, and nor the future. I will be content with how things are, and didn't have to think any further ahead than getting to Santiago.

The credencial, or Pilgrim Record


The credencial, a distant successor to the safe-conducts issued to medieval pilgrims, is a document printed and issued by the cathedral authorities in Santiago, and made available to bona fide pilgrims at points along the route - e.g. at Roncesvalles, and at some churches and refugios - and through the Spanish associations.

Australian Friends of The Camino are authorised to issue Credencials,  a request form can be found here  Credencial
