I have only just come across your blog once more and caught up with your recent Camino in Italy. I have no Camino in 2013 as my sister is fighting cancer and we live day to day now she is on palliative care. I would love to assist in any way with your research or walk some stage with you next year. I hope to walk the Via de la Plata in Spring. As your own life indicates who knows what is ahead for any of us. So excited you got a contract to write a new title. Now I must think, will I walk in advance of your guide or wait for it’s publication?
