I’ve now been home for just over a week after hiking the Camino de Santiago although it somehow feels much longer than that – it was one of those experiences where you can’t remember what life was like before and can’t imagine what going back to real life would be like. You just feel like you’ll be walking along the trail for the rest of your life – and actually, you feel pretty good about that!
There was plenty of time for quiet reflection, and I learned a lot during the trip – not only about the Camino, but about myself, too. Read on to find out what I learned, what you should be looking forward to if you’re booked in to do the trip, and a couple of facts you might not already know about the trail!
This post is in partnership with G Adventures, although my opinion is genuine and I will only collaborate with brands I truly believe in.
The Camino de Santiago is a Spanish set of trails that all lead to Santiago de Compostela – and I’m so excited to say that I’ll be hiking 100km of this trail with G Adventures this summer. Not only that, but the very kind G Adventures team are giving YOU the chance to win this trip, too!
Hiking 100km in less than a week sounds pretty daunting, but I’m confident that with the right training, carefully considered packing, and the three-sixty degree support that G Adventures provide, I’ll have an incredible, safe and active time.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be documenting my preparation for this trip, both here on the blog and on my Instagram. Read on to find out more about what exactly the Camino de Santiago is – and how YOU can win your own Spanish hiking trip, too.
I'm working in partnership with G Adventures for this trip, but as ever my opinion will never be bought, and I will only support companies I truly believe in.
