There are different levels of seriousness on the Camino. Some think it’s:
*how far you walk
*how many times you’ve walked the Camino
*whether you walk the trails or the highway
*if you ever take transportation
*if you walk every day or take any for rest

I’ve reached a point where I needed a break.

Yesterday was a scorcher and I had blisters and some heat stroke – to the point of dropping my ice cream cone.

Some nights we’ve slept on the beach, in rain with bugs and a bit colder than comfortable. but the picnics were spectacular – especially at La Vega:
