Thoughts on the Camino
Listen back to this very short clip of Jean Callanan, Chair of IHF, recounting her extraordinary experience of the Camino, walking and talking, and being fully present in the moment.
The Camino is a truly unique and special event. Martina Crehan, who walked the Camino in honour of her husband Don who died in 2014 after a journey with cancer, captured her experience in her blog.
No one could have prepared me for the beauty and peace of walking thorough km after km of Galician coast, vineyards and hamlets. The exclusive focus on getting to the top of that next hill; your mind empty of other thoughts. The sharing of stories and the openness of people who were complete strangers a few days beforehand. The daily blister count….who knew you can spend a week enthralled by the state of other people’s feet! A Galician sunrise. The scent of grapes trod underfoot. The regular “buen camino” from fellow walkers.
