WOW I have always believed that people come into your life for a reason. Well today Estelle came into my life and spelt out for me why I was on the journey.........If I can do this.........I can do ANYTHING. What a great message. Thank you Estelle.
It's funny how life gives you clues to where you should be heading. ....About 6 months before starting this journey David and I where both coasting in life but starting to question its purpose....our purpose. We talked about going to an ashram but did nothing about it. Then one night I was talking to a friend who in casual conversation suggested I watch the movie The Way. The Way is a movie about The Camino. I said sounds like a nice movie and forgot about the conversation. A few weeks later David and I went to the local video shop and there sitting on the shelf was the movie The Way. Something is trying to tell me something.......
Anyway took the movie home, watched and loved it and that led us to investigate wether the trek depicted in the movie was real or made up. Now I have to explain something here. At this point neither David or had ever done a long distance trek, we were both over weight and would drive EVERYWHERE walking was a dirty word. But after watching the movie, did a little research we decided that we should tackle The Camino. Thirteen weeks later after doing roughly 1000km of walking training, on a island that is about 5 km long and 4 km wide we end up in St Jean Pied de Port talking to a the owner of the albergue Danielle, she mentions had we heard of the Japanese Camino 88 temples. As as you can see from our website the 88 Temples walk is on our agenda for 2018.
Now you may think I crazy but I truly believe that universe will always show you the way.....As long as you stop , take time to quieten the outside world and listen to the quiet voice of the universe.
