Come Walk with Me

This image taken by our son Hunter in 2007 is one of my favorites from our first Camino. Having walked with my husband on each Camino trip I can say I am grateful for the memories we have made together and can continue to share. (We set out with Hunter on that first Camino, too, and so we have memories with him as well.)

For us it has been a good decision to walk the Camino together. Travel of any kind presents lots of unknowns, and we like having each other to problem solve and watch each other’s backs. Plus, we just like experiencing life together. It is a way God has grown our faith in Him to provide what we need, and trust Him when things go amiss. Later we recall hard times we have encountered and worked through as a reminder during new difficulties that God works everything for good for those who are His. We also love reliving the beauty and fun times with other pilgrims and people we meet along the way. 

After 41 years of marriage we have learned how to give each other space and time to reflect on our own as we walk, in addition to enjoying interaction with each other and new people we meet. If you decide to walk with someone, these will be the types of expectations to discuss as you plan your trip. Along with the fun and beauty, travel comes with stress as you encounter hardship along the way, so it is better to anticipate this and talk about it before it happens.

The Camino de Santiago is special, and whether you decide to travel alone, or with a spouse or friend, you will have opportunities when you arrive to make Camino friendships and walk with others if you choose to.

Our goal is to help more people plan and complete the walk they set out to do. How to decide which route? How to get there? How much time to take? We can help you get started. Begin here on our website: Begin.

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.
