The Post Camino Blues

Rob The Traveller

The Post Camino Blues are real for many people. So it makes sense to be ready for it…… I had read a lot about Pilgrims arriving in Santiago and going through a sense of loss. A ‘let down’ that their journey was over. As you will have read in my Blog I was ready for that, but didn’t experience it.
