Camino Frances: Why We Walk

This Camino was walked with three intentions:

Grössi, my grandmother in Switzerland, passed away exactly a year ago. It is in her honor that I march as she is closer to the Saint and needs no holy city.

Grandma, my Oma exiled to Virginia, recently survived a bout of ill health. She continues to improve and she’s returning to full vitality.

Tony, my younger brother, once more laces up his boots and deploys overseas. His wife and kids – as well as the rest of the family – await his return in roughly nine months.

For Grössi – Peace.

For Grandma – Health.

For Tony – Protection.

Everyone has their reasons for walking; don’t forget yours.
