Wait 'til You See It in Person

September 2017, Pamplona, Spain

It’s a breathtaking image, but the photo pales in comparison to actually being there to see the expanse of the sunset over the whole mountain range near Pamplona. Standing there at the window in September 2017 taking it all in, my thoughts were, “Wow, Lord, you are something else! You relish creating beauty like this knowing we are enjoying it.” His thoughts shot right back, I do enjoy a beautiful sunset. I knew you would, too. Even better I enjoyed creating you, and savor every moment with you.

Why do my husband and I return to the Camino to walk time and time again? This is why. Pulling away from the daily routines of home to spend time walking the Camino, focused on God is like no other retreat I know. If you are interested in finding more in life, walking the Camino might be just the thing. For us, the Camino is a place we experience more of life: More struggle, but more victory. More simple. More beautiful. More of God's peace.

Our family and friends have walked many, many Camino journeys over the last decade, and we share our favorite ways of getting there, our favorite gear, our favorite strategies to finish what you start. You will find this all in one place in an easy-to-read resource, our website. Our goal is to save you time and effort, and help you get to the Camino sooner.

Wick and Helen Van Wagenen first walked the Camino in 2007, and God has used every part of their experience to shape their lives since then. They are grateful for the opportunities to make many more trips to research routes, test gear, and volunteer along The Way. The Van Wagenens and their family and teammates continue making new trips, and enjoy helping others make the trip of a lifetime. You can contact them at Info@CaminoProvisions.com.
