So why am I walking El Camino?
Like many things, my reason for setting out on this venture is a multifaceted one. Part of me is attracted to the recreational aspect of hiking a long distance. Part of me is interested in the social aspect of many individuals from various backgrounds sharing in a common experience. And there is a part of me that believes - that in a complicated world with tragic natural disasters, increasing humanitarian crises, an apparent decline in civility and a growing lack of hope - that a simple walk or pilgrimage can rejuvenate my and other's faith, hope and love.
So I walk and invite you to walk alongside me.
