I’m new to this blogging thing.
And even though many people told me they’d love to read about my experience of walking 500 miles across Spain, I was really reluctant to blog it.
The idea of a public exposé made me squirm a bit. Okay, it made me squirm a lot.
But 14 weeks ago, I sat at work and realised:
This time last year, I was walking up the side of the Pyrenees! On a sunny morning at 8:30am, I looked across the countryside covered in golden light. I felt delighted to be away from the desk!
As I remembered this, I suddenly felt compelled to share some of my memories and reflections from this life-changing experience. It was a unique time in my life but I won’t remember the details forever. Plus, I feel really strongly about the benefits of such a journey in our modern world. So, I started this blog, in the hope that my experience of the Camino de Santiago would provide inspiration and heart for you, too.
I haven’t advertised this very heavily (still squirming!) but in a few short weeks I’ve amassed over 2,000 views, with more than 180 views on one of last week’s posts alone. Quite frankly, I’m chuffed!
I couldn’t create such numbers all by myself so I want to say
Thank You for Reading!
