Map of Caminos de Santiago


My beloved Miss Sunshine passed away two weeks ago. She got her diagnosis of cancer almost three years ago, just when we returned from the PCT. A long fight started, but no success. I am burnt out, emotionally and physically. To find a way to get back to my feet, I decided to hike the Camino de Santiago, a spiritual pilgrims trail for centuries.

The Camino(s) de Santiago is a huge trail network in Europe. Wherever you are, there is no camino far from you (see trail map). I decided to do it as the pilgrim did all the time: I will start just from the front door of my home. The trail length to Santioago is about 2600 km (1600 miles). Because I have to take care for my home and garden and also work part time, I will not be able to hike the trail without break. I will start with short one day hikes and than start to improve the length of the daily hikes switch to longer hiking periods. Hopefully I will be fully recovered by the end of the trip.

Other Trail is located off the beaten path, somewhere between the soles of your feet and your imagination.
