Starting tomorrow I’m going to be walking for a month with nothing but this small bag, this not-so-small hat, a husband in tow, and the road. Why? Because tomorrow I will be a pilgrim on the 1,000 year-old Camino de Santiago walking from France to Spain (about 500 miles/800 kilometers). You won’t be hearing much from me for the four weeks I’ll be trekking, but I’ll reply to messages as I can. Buen Camino!
