I can officially say after not sleeping all night in an effort to maintain organization, it was a close call. Moving out the day before leaving the country sounded fine on paper, but had some challenges. In the end, we are all moved out of our house and packed into two 35Liter backpacks. We were so blessed to have had a wonderful landlord who was flexible and patient, my mom and her cleaning partner Debbie who made the house look new again, and loving friends who are so kindly watching over our vehicles. I plan to keep posting throughout our journey from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela.
It’s hard not to talk about the trip as if it is already complete. We have been on an incredible journey just getting to the point where we could even imagine trying this. There is neither time nor space to thank everyone who has played a role in helping us get here. I imagine though that everyone we would wish to thank knows our sentiments.
And we’re off! Our flight will be leaving Sea-Tac in just a few hours.
We will do our best to provide updates on the evolution of our journey as time and connectivity permit.

how exciting to think of what can happen on a long walk in a new and foreign land – oh how many if our greatest stories have just this journey narrative!
vaya con Dios!
how exciting to be embarking on a long walk in a foreign and unknown(to you) land – oh how many of our most wonderful narratives have just this as their plot. Can’t wait to hear what your story becomes.
vaya con Dios!
