For the ones that like to practice for their future "Camino to Santiago" or just love walking long distances with others, I have scheduled 4 Camino Walks early Saturday mornings from 6 – 9 am. We will be walking approximately 10 – 15 km’s.
In 2015, I walked the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela in 40 days and averagely 22 km’s per day. In 2017, I walked via the Camino Norte and Camino Primitivo to Santiago de Compostela. And I just returned from Spain where I walked from Leon to Santiago in 13 days. I love to share some of my best practices on the Camino whilst walking.
And it is also fun to practice together, share some pilgrim stories and have some meaningful conversations and grow our nature awareness together. Most of the time, I also share a nature-based tool that helps you discover more about yourself.
What to expect? These Camino walks are hikes mainly in nature with some climbs and approximately 10 – 15 km’s. Please bring a backpack with a snack, sufficient water, and wear good hiking boots.
Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 6:00 am – 9:00 am – Calbas
Sign up at 594 4250 or email email@example.com. Upon sign-up I will inform you about the meeting location. The Camino walks are a gift to you. If you like to gift something, you are more than welcome.
