21st of May – A Struggle | Walking to León

I was pondering on this this morning. It’s an overcast day, which always seems to affect my mood. But it wasn’t just that.

We’re now down near a thousand year old bridge as you can see on the video.

15th of May – Should this be a Solo Journey

Rob The Traveller

As I’m walking through this beautiful countryside today, I’m just reflecting on whether my decision was right to make this a solo journey. I think for me at this particular time, it was the right decision. Of course everyone walks the Camino at different stages of their life, and for many different reasons.
