Wisdom from a Jedi Master
This photo was taken as we walked over the Pyrenees into Spain during our last time on the Camino Francés on May 17, 2015. The weather crossing the Pyrenees was rough. We actually had sleet, snow, and temperatures of 29 degrees Fahrenheit. The walk from St. Jean Pied-de-Port is one of the most physically demanding activities we have ever done, but it is also something that has shaped us and given us a benchmark to encourage us to lean into other trials we encounter in our daily lives. As Yoda says to a discouraged Luke Skywalker during his Jedi training in The Empire Strikes Back, "Do. Or do not. There is no try."
We hope that you will be encouraged to walk the Camino de Santiago and discover your own benchmarks for the rest of your life. Find the route and the way to walk the Camino that works for you.
We are here to help.
Wick and Helen Van Wagenen had their first Camino experience in 2007, and God has used every part of it to shape their lives since. They have had opportunities to make many more trips to research routes, test gear, and volunteer along The Way. They continue making new trips, and like helping others make the trip of a lifetime.
