Camino JJ 2014

I have decided to celebrate my approaching 60th birthday by walking the Camino Francis from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, a distance of approximately 800 kilometres. I am in training doing weights 3 days a week and my longest walk so far is 22 kilometres, with my good friend Greg. I aim to reach Santiago on my birthday and I’m allowing 5 weeks to cover the 800 kilometres. I have read that to walk a long distance, one should walk light, so I intend to deploy a three pronged attack. I need to unburden my mind, unburden my body and carry the barest minimum in my pack. This will be the first of what I hope will be many posts.
