Camino – reflections and random thoughts while flying home

Things I will miss and things that I learned (am learning) from the Camino

  • Looking for, and navigating by, Camino markers
  • Being greeted with “Buen Camino” (and having it feel genuine and heartfelt)
  • Greeting others with “Hola!  Buen Camino!”
  • Walking through a changing landscape every day (even on the Mesita)
  • The simple rhythm of my days (that were also completely unique)
  • The daily surprises
  • Being open to the daily surprises
  • Being in touch with my body
  • Being in touch with my heart
  • Moving at 5kph all the time (except when it was slower than that) and feeling my whole being relax and slow down
  • Not being in a motor vehicle
  • Feeling like a time traveler (walking through old streets like still look much the same way they looked centuries ago)
  • Walking where countless peregrinos have walked (with intention) before me
  • Hearing multiple languages every day
  • Meeting people I would never have met otherwise
  • Meeting new friends and finding connections very quickly
  • Learning that I was capable of navigating in a world where the language and the people and the culture and the landscape were foreign to me
  • Learning (in a deeper and more powerful way) that my body is amazing
  • Learning that I could enjoy food I didn’t know I liked
  • Learning that I could carry almost everything I need (at least for a while) in my backpack
  • Learning (in a deeper and more powerful way) to listen to and trust what my body and my heart were saying to me
  • Learning that letting go of plans and intentions and expectations does not have to mean defeat
