The Camino is like life …

Last week, just before we started our long, hot trudge into Burgos, we sat and had a drink at a little village and chatted with a young Brazillian woman. She told us that a lot of Brazillians do the Camino, mostly because of Paulo Coelho’s first book, The Pilgrimage.

We had our usual whinge about pilgrims who wake up ridiculously early and walk for hours in the dark, and she made the most insightful comment we have heard about the Camino, which sums it up perfectly.

‘The Camino is like life – some people race through it, some people take their time, but we all end up in the same place.’
