Not Much… I really enjoy looking back on this Blog. It brings back very clearly the emotions and feelings at the time I was walking.

Rob The Traveller

OK, I said that I would share my Camino Revelations when I got to Santiago. I’m a bit late! But I’ve still been processing some things…. In a separate post later, I may share some of the more ‘Spiritual’ elements of my Camino. Not quite ‘burning bushes’ but it was close a few times! For now, I’ll talk about that whole issue of answers and questions. Early in my Camino I was searching for answers.
