Week 3 of El Camino de Santiago. This is where I begin to hate the camino and consider it to be more of a chore than an actual “life-changing experience”.
El Camino de Santiago Week 2 involves lots of cheap Spanish red wine, pretending to know how to cook, early morning solo strides, and walking for what feels like FOREVER!
I set off on a pilgrimage–walking 800 kilometers across Spain over 31 days starting from the French border. It’s called ‘El Camino de Santiago’ and thousands of people of all ages and nationalities attempt this feat every year!
I unexpectedly hit a travel “wall” — feeling the desire to go home and reset myself before I continue on to the rest of the world. But fortunately, I have reliable friends in Warsaw who snapped me out of my funk.
I never thought I would ever go to the Ukraine, but here I am. Out of all the countries I have been in, I chose here of all places to be careless with one of my most valuable possessions: my passport. I almost paid the ultimate price searching for a way out.
