IN TODAY’S EPISODE
Life seems to be a long period of time, in which we have plenty of time to plan for future events. But what happens when something unexpected occurs? Something happened to today’s guest pilgrim Gaelle. She planned to walk the Camino de Santiago with her dad. But due to cancer, they couldn’t fulfil their dream together.
After his death, she was destroyed as a little girl who loses her favourite and greatest hero. She wasn’t able to come back into the “normal world”, unemployed and sad she was in a really tough situation. In the summer of 2020 Gaelle wasn’t feeling better. Not being able to keep her jobs, her social interaction was pretty limited, she was still in a weird sport emotionally speaking.
She knew that I had to do something if I wanted to heal… So, Gaelle decided to go on the Camino even if her dad wasn’t here to do it . In a week her bag was packed, I waited to received my credential and I took a blablacar from Cannes to Toulouse.
It is often a Camino conversation on Facebook groups and on social media in general about the” right way” to do the Camino. And as the title of this episode says is there is only one right way. YOUR WAY!
Gaelle’s Camino was as follows:
- 251km Blablacar
- 279 km Train
- 50 km Stop ( hitchhiking)
- 100Km Bus
- 425 km walk ( same for my doggy ^^)
