A cousin of mine died a year ago and I wanted to get away from everything. The Camino has been a blessing to me.

Every day, every hour, every minute, the friends I have met on the Camino have been like a gift.

A cousin of mine died just a year ago, on her birthday, which we share, 8 October. So I decided to get away from everything, from my family, from my friends, not celebrate the birthday and to come and do the Camino and be alone.

On the Camino, I have made a lot of friends who have been a blessing to me. Every day, every hour, every minute, they have been like a gift.

‘I didn’t celebrate my birthday, but here, on the Camino, I have been more fulfilled by everything I have experienced.
