These boots were made for walking!

It is so hard to believe that I've started the first leg of a journey that will take me to Spain and the long awaited sponsored trek along the Camino de Santiago.

It is two years since I contacted Dom at Traidcraft Exchange to register my interest and then Covid came which saw the trek dates change twice. And here I am at Stansted ready to get some sleep in before an early start to begin the journey. 

In what have been difficult times it is good to have something like this to look forward.  I simply share in this blog the pilgrim's prayer -

Be for us our companion on the walk,

Our guide at the crossroads,
Our breath in our weariness,
Our protection in danger,
Our albergue on the Camino,
Our shade in the heat,
Our light in the darkness,
Our consolation in our discouragements, And our strength in our intentions.
So that with your guidance we may arrive safe and sound at the end of the Road and enriched with grace and virtue we return safely to our homes filled with joy.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
