Introduction to Walking the Road to Santiago

What? You are planning to walk 800 KM? Are you nuts?? What gave you this idea?? A good
question, indeed.

Jeff and I have been walking on a regular basis since our children were in high school. We organized an elaborate dishwashing schedule for them after our family dinner. While they cleaned up we walked around the block, often in the dark. That was the start.

Since then, walking has become our sport. We have found the loveliest places to walk, on our holidays and also near home. We are lucky to live near Tynehead Park where we indulge in walking almost everyday.

Several years ago we read Jane Christmas' What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim and much later watched the movie, The Way. This inspired us to start thinking about someday walking that fabled route in Northern Spain.

Jeff is having a milestone birthday this March and what a great way to celebrate this, with a long distance walk. Joining us are Bert and Diane plus Arlene and Joyce. We are looking forward to fun times together!
