The Perpetual Vagabond

Exploring the world near and far, mostly on foot.

Hey Spain! I’m Coming for You!

I leave for Spain in the morning and I have to say that I’m pretty excited, but I’m also secretly nervous. I’ve never done anything quite like this before…my first completely independent trip abroad and one in which I will be pushing my physical comfort zone pretty significantly. I keep thinking about what it will feel like to walk 650 miles. I love walking, but will I love walking that much? Will I be constantly exhausted and sore, or will I feel energized and inspired? Is my pack too heavy? Did I forget anything important? I know that ultimately none of these questions matter, but while I wait to leave I can’t help but think about what’s to come.

But, in just a day and a half and two flights later I will be in Madrid and it will be pushing 100 degrees. I’m going to be hot and tired and excited, but a few days after that I will be at the start of the Camino and my journey will begin whether I am ready or not! And I guess the truth is that my journey began the moment I decided to do this trip, so ready or not here I come!
