The Plan


From the moment I discovered the centuries old pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela, I was enthralled with the idea of one day making the journey my own. For years, I’ve been waiting until the time was right, until I had enough money and a job that would let me take a month off to follow my heart through Spain.

I’m tired of waiting. The time is now. I’m broke, but I’ll figure it out. I’m taking to the Camino in September 2014 one way or the other. This blog will chronicle the whys and hows as I take my first steps toward embarking on this long-awaited quest. Here I’ll clarify my vision, plan my journey, and figure out just how in hell (or heaven, as the case may be) I’m going to afford a 30-day journey through Spain when I can’t even afford my student loans. Hopefully, St. Francis will see me through. He was, after all, quite good at traveling the world without spending a dime.

  1. Very excited to stumble across your blog as coincidentally we are too doing the Camino in September this year. We are planning to take it a “little” more leisurely and going for 46 or so days…. slowing it down and soaking it up!
    We look forward to hearing how you are planning for it as we need to get our act together 🙂

    • Oh wonderful! Maybe our paths will cross. I’m holding it close to the chest, but actually hoping to take a little more time, too. I’d really like to walk the Camino di Assisi in Italy first – it’s about a 3 – 5 day’s walk around Umbria that touches all of the important places Francis of Assisi visited/lived in. We’ll see what happens…
