“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

While walking the Camino de Santiago Sept - Nov. 2016 I had to start out very early in the morning when it was still dark. It was scary at times and difficult to find the path, but it was also very rewarding because I was able to witness some very beautiful sunrises! It was a pleasant way to start each new day and each new adventure on the Camino.

This quote by Hemingway rings true for my Camino experience. Although we walk to arrive in Santiago de Compostela, it is the journey that really matters in the end and what an amazing journey it was.

This photo was taken on my way out of Leon. It is one of my favorite sunrises.

It looks like I get my first taste of weather challenges on my Camino Day 1 as the forecast is showing rain. I guess I should be thankful that it isn't thunder storms. I hoping the visibility isn't too bad.

I made these If Found & Contact Cards to place in my things. I will use them for luggage tags as well and will also use them to tie to my shoes so no body takes them by mistake in the Albergues.

The idea to make contacts cards is so If I meet people along the way and take their pictures, I can give them my info so if they want to see their photos and want a copy of them, they know how to find and contact me. I also have a small note book which I can use to write down fellow pilgrim information I want to stay in contact with.

Just did a test pack. Amazing how full and heavy it got. I'll need to do some serious trim downs. 😃

Camino Clothing (Link is also pinned): Since I'll be doing my Camino Sept-November I've decided on a layering system rather than getting one heavy jacket. This will allow me to add on and/or peel off in order to adjust for the varying weather conditions.

My attire is mainly from Columbia:

Shirts: I'll bring (2) Long Sleeve and (2) Short Sleeve Shirts which are are quick dri, sun protected and has very handy pockets for easy access to my reading glasses.

Pants: I'll bring two same quality convertible pants which can be unzipped to be shorts. I'll also bring 1 long shorts (to wear after my shower & to sleep in). I may bring another shorts/capri (still undecided).

Jackets: And for my warmth, I have a fleece vest, a puffy shirt and a very light Columbia waterproof shell jacket. (I'm still bringing an Atlus Poncho for those down pours).
