Time flies – some months ago the Camino was quite distant and soon I’m going to start the long walk – or to be more correct, we will start our walk! I’m not doing this alone – eventhough i’m responsible for “the social side”, my wife is absolutely a big, big part of this adventure. So to prepare not just for walking but also eating and some drinking, we had a nice dinner testing some Spannish wine. One ambition with the trip is for us to learn more about wine besides beeing able to differ red wine from white.
So, during the dinner I got the chance of interviewing my wife about the trip. I may say that she was not so impressed about my skills in asking questions, perhaps I should have asked them long time before. But better late than never. So let’s go..
What do you look forward to regarding the Camino?
I look forward to the challenge of the long walk and the experience, but also leaving the daily routines behind. I do like that you have to live with the things you can carry, quite a minimalistic life. And of course, having some chances to taste some good wine and food would be nice.
What do you think will the hardest part with this journey?
Besides my husband? Well, I know that i’m sometimes lose my patience and give up to easy perhaps. However, we have tested the equipment and as last weekend was very warm I know a bit more about walking in the heat. But again, keeping up the endurance is perhaps the most important part, but also the hardest.
How will it be to reach Compostela?
No idea, I do look forward to that day. Being able to arrive there means that I have accomplished a big challenge hopefully learning a lot about myself and my life. But let’s see, you can’t be sure how it will be before you have done it.
