Question: What is wonderful and unpredictable and funny and odd and unintelligible and  . . . ?

Answer: the people you meet everyday on the Camino Francés.

Naturally, I am the only totally normal person on the trail. Walking across Spain and over three mountain ranges with nothing more than a pack on your back is the sort of thing that totally normal people do. Right? Right!

I encountered this interesting bit of wall art one morning while exploring the village of Cacabelos (after a caffè americano and some wonderful tortilla de patata, of course).

Buen caminó!


Here's a totally normal idea: hike along the Jesus Trail in Galilee and do some additional sightseeing in Israel-Palestine! This trip is facilitated by the Jerusalem Center for Biblical Studies and is priced at $2,588 from New York. Dates are Jan 8-16, 2019. For more details click here or contact me at
