What an amazing experience, now with a little time to reflect it is clear that the Camino is the perfect example of the journey being more important than the destination.
We have climbed mountains, trudged through desolate plains, wandered in magical forests, seen the sunrise, walked under a full moon, taken the path less travelled and joined the masses on a shared purpose.
However the friendships we have made are the most important gift to us. The people we have shared stories with, walked alongside in companionable silence, laughed, cried, enjoyed food and wine (good and bad), and from whom we have learned.
We would like to thank each and every one of the fabulous pilgrims we met: Marcus from Germany, Nikolay from Russia, Dave and Peter from USA, Ronnie from Belgium, Chrissy from Australia, Lisa from England, Jamie and Nic from Australia, Sheldon and Rob from Australia (via London), Bob from USA, Claire and Leah from New Zealand, Laurent from France, Sherry and Richard from USA, Brendan and Kate from Australia, Shigeto from Japan, Tobias from Germany, James from USA, Monica from Spain, Bae from Korea, Charlotte from Germany, Erin from USA, Veronica from USA, Wolfgang from Germany, Scott from USA, Allan and Cathy from Canada, Joe and Brian from USA, Heiro from Belgium, Jerzy and Sylwia from Poland, Arthur from France, Christophe from France, Mark and Fiona from New Zealand, Ross and Jenny from New Zealand, Mark from Australia, Jenny from Ireland, Lucia, Brian and David from Canada, Carla and Joan from South Africa, Martin and Tomas from Germany, Chris from USA, Ji Yeon from Korea, Anita from Netherlands, Sylvia from Hong Kong, Becky from USA, Miguel and his wife from Spain, Mati and her husband from Spain and to every other pilgrim we met, walked with and talked to on The Way.
