The idea of walking a Camino was cemented as a definite goal after seeing the movie ‘The Way’. After joining the Australian Friends of the Camino, I walked the Camino Frances with my wife, Zorka, in 2014 from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, coinciding with the 800th anniversary of St Francis of Assisi’s pilgrimage to Santiago de Compestela.
We hope to walk the Camino del Norte and Camino Portuguese in the next two years as a celebration of our 60th birthdays. The Camino Frances has had a profound effect on us and something we often reflect on.
My involvement in the Committee of the Australian Friends of the Camino continues the journey.
