Group Camino Blog and Pics

Here’s a wonderful blog by Rosie, one of the pilgrims who walked with my group for 225kms on the Camino in the Spring of 2012.  We are now booking May 19-31, 2013 Group Camino Journey.

Blisters. Almost everyone gets them on the Camino. The trick is to keep your feet dry. For many years I avoided them completely by putting vaseline on my feet every morning and changing my socks partway through the day. (if you’re barefoot …you don’t get them) n May each year I guide a group of pilgrims along the Camino, a medival route following the footsteps of millions of people. You’ll be guided to prepare for the journey physically, mentally and spiritually and learn expert tips. We’ll walk over 200 kilometers in 11 days together. If you want a package about estimated expenses, what’s planned and how to sign up contact me directly. Read about it http://lnkd.in/VhsnU4 It’s the journey of a lifetime

Discount if you secure you place by December 31, 2012. Contact me for a package or check out some of the details on this site. Thanks Rosie!

Las Pergrinas…the women who walk.

http://www.amazon.com/Las-Peregrinas-the-Women-Who-Walk/dp/B003JYU9X2/ref=pd_sim_mov_aiv_5

Las Peregrinas chronicles a group of first-time women pilgrims on their own individual journeys of self-discovery as they walk for 12 days on the ancient pilgrimage route in Spain known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino is a path that people have walked for over 1100 years. Pilgrims of the past went to Santiago, because the remains of St James the Apostle were alleged to be buried there. They believed if they were closer to the remains of an apostle, they would be closer to God. Modern day pilgrims come from all over the world, from all denominations and cultures to walk the mystical path. This film questions what compels modern day women to voluntarily choose to suffer both the joys and anguish of walking hundreds, sometimes thousands of kilometers on a medieval pilgrimage route in search of something more? We ask: What compels women to voluntarily choose to suffer both the joys and anguish of walking hundreds of kilometers in search of something more? We follow this group of women on the Camino documenting various stages of their quest as they talk directly to the camera in daily diaries and in unguarded highly emotional moments. We are privy to their struggles and epiphanies as they journey.
Anita is a 44 year old business executive. First generation Canadian Italian, from a family of three daughters. She’s optimistic and ready for a possibly difficult journey, and ends up in deep introspection. It’s Anita who raises possibly the most interesting question on the journey; “How much do we have to suffer in order to be happy?” Mony is a 40 year old Lebanese, Canadian MBA, former business (or sales and marketing) exec in the software industry, and now a master pilgrim. She resigned from a lucrative position to walk the Camino in 2003 and then   continued on a 5000 kilometer walk for peace from Rome to Jerusalem with another pilgrim. Mony represents hard-core pilgrim values and struggles with her natural inclination to take charge. A soldier for peace, Margie is a 56 year old retired teacher and mother of five children. A strict Roman Catholic, she walked this pilgrimage to pray for her sister in law who has Breast Cancer and for the physical challenge of the journey. “Some people came on this journey to find out who they are, I know who I am.” She came not expecting to have a religious experience but winds up mothering, mentoring and teaching two pilgrims how to pray the rosary.   Anita Shuper is a 32 year old MBA graduate looking to find meaningful work, has survived ovarian cancer and saw this journey as an opportunity for personal growth. She’s subjected to a 15th century form of blister surgery, then finds herself in hysterical laughter. Naturally funny and a source of comic relief, Anita started this journey like it was a variation on the family vacation, and   nonetheless experiences what is possibly the most profound emotional and spiritual transformation of all the pilgrims.
Sue Kenney, 50 year old writer, speaker and expert pilgrim is on her fifth Camino to Santiago, Sue brings her natural hands-off approach to this diverse group of women. A pastor or guide, she keeps the pilgrims moving in the direction of Santiago while simultaneously giving them the freedom to choose their own path, allowing the Camino to deliver what each pilgrim needs. Balancing the delicate roles of Leader, Guide, Pilgrim and Director, Sue not only brings a unique perspective to the documentary, but is presented with the opportunity to deeply understand and integrate what it means to live her life purpose as one who inspires others. Sue is a mother of three grown daughters and an author of two books on the Camino.
