Off we go!

Finally, the day has arrived. I’m sitting in Atlanta airport waiting for my flight to Spain. My pack weighed in just under 17 pounds last night. I have a need to tape my feet and I think my Leuka tape is about a pound. Oh well.

I’ve been having a hard time dealing with my mother’s passing, and am praying that I walk with her this Camino. Two of my sisters were going to go with, but have had to postpone joining me for 3 weeks. So I will be walking alone to start.

I have my bus ticket loaded on my phone from Madrid to Burgos. From there, I will catch another bus to Santo Domingo de la Calzada (whew!). In 14 hours, I hope to be safely tucked away at the Parador for two nights.

Stay tuned for another adventure: I wonder what I will see and learn? I have no agenda but to walk in peace with my mother on my heart.

Until tomorrow! Buen Camino!
