My Camino – Sept. 2016

Well I’ve finally gotten around to doing a long form video of my time on the Camino de Santiago this past September. I’ve been wanting to put something out but just never got to it – as usual!

So, I threw all the pictures into Corel’s quick video maker and then did a bit of editing and put some titles in to help make sense of it. I also took out the soundtrack because I didn’t like it and didn’t really have time to find music that YouTube would be okay with.

So now you can provide your own soundtrack but you might want to get really comfortable and have a snack on hand because this is LOOOONG! 55 minutes long! Happily you can pause it anytime you desire.

My thanks to all the souls I met along the way. Whether we spent much time together or not it was interesting to meet so many from all over the world, including Phoenix! And a special thanks to those who traveled with me for days at a time. I’ll never forget some of you that’s for sure.

Hope you enjoy!

My Camino – Sept. 2016

Camino 2016 Day 1

I’m a day behind on my posts so I’ll try and catch up. Here’s a group shot of the people I stayed with the night begore. The ladies were going to start later so Al and I pressef on together.

We got started late out of St.Jean. very step for the first 8 kilometers inbuilt we reached Orrison. After a brief stop we started towards the top.

The weather was pretty warm,  in the mid to upper 90s and humid. It wasn’t as steep as before bit long.  Finally we reached the statue of the Virgin, which symbolizes the top but isn’t.  

We went on and one and after some rough up hill stretches finally started down. By that time both Al and I were pretty low on water and pretty warm as well. 

We found the Fountain of Roland at the border with Spain.  What a blessing to relax and drink our fill of the cool water. 

We refilled and started down. Finally arriving at our Alburge at 6 PM.

Whata day.  Nit as  tough as the Grand Canyon, but tough that’s for sure. 

A few more pics.
