A Walk in the Woods...

It's official. On April 17th I'll be joining centuries of folks who have made the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, better known as the Camino. I won't be hiking the entire trail (it's a doozy, let me tell you) but the last 100 km, finishing Easter Saturday. 

Last weekend, I took to the trails of Luxembourg with Lux Cafe to begin our training for this little adventure. After that first 10km hike, I realized it was going to take more than a few weekends of hiking to get ready for the Camino. But isn't that the thing about pilgrimages? It's all about the journey, the steps you've taken to get to your goal.

From now until April, I'll be spending my weekends in the woods, discovering the back country of Luxembourg, getting ready for Spain, getting ready to take this pilgrimage by storm.
