First and second adulthood. i can’t help but feel an intense resonance with these thoughts from a favorite book. identifying that we all have the opportunity for both
.
during our first we focus on survival - finding security within the social confines of the present day world. seeking social standing, wealth and perhaps even fame. taught, consciously or not, to seek power over others vs. power with others
.
in a sense it’s a necessary part of our growth, we must understand how to survive within a community but “the value of this comes from the building it - not the living in it”
.
the call to move into a “second” adulthood can come at any age - often during the middle of life when we finally realize we can no longer pretend that we will live forever. for most this will be the first time to sit in real contemplation of what your life has become and ask what will you do with the time you have left.

we all have the opportunity to wander beyond the confines of how we were taught to show up in the world the question is when will you be ready.

this september @rippleoutretreats will participate in an ancient pilgrimage on the camino de santiago through france and spain - over mountains and across cultures as we facilitate and explore just this. there is an undeniable power in fully exploring where you’ve come from and deciding what you will do with the rest of your time

The shape of our life often becomes clear to us as we walk. almost without noticing it, we become engaged with a world larger than ourselves and our concerns. as casual as a walk may seem, profound wisdom can be it’s by product - (the artists way)
.
my time spent in nature has drastically changed the way that i see the world and how i continue to move through it. a true recalibration that touches all parts of who you are
.

next year @louredmond_ @thefaroutcouple and i will be facilitating two opportunities to walk. we’ll be heading back into the wild to trek through the real yosemite (aka not the valley) while facilitating an exploration of joseph campbell’s hero’s journey. we’ll also be walking from france to spain on the french way of the camino de santiago, one of the most ancient and sought after spiritual pilgrimages. our walk through the french countryside will include a facilitated exploration of our personal stories past, present and future
.
perhaps you’re ready to step into the world to explore yourself, remembering that it’s not the places we go but what they teach us to see

// in this season of life, if loss made a sound and produced a feeling it would be comparable to these crashing waves. my spirit will always say “it is well,” therein lies the challenge for my soul to say the same. 2018, you’re giving me the opportunity to practice exactly what presented itself to me on that very first day...hope.

Santiago de camino🇪🇸
...
the camino de santiago (latin: peregrinatio compostellana, "pilgrimage of compostela"; galician: o camiño de santiago),[1] known in english as the way of saint james among other names,[2][3][4] is a network of pilgrims' ways serving pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle saint james the great in the cathedral of santiago de compostela in galicia in northwestern spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. (via @wikipedia )

Definitely the highlight of our trip was our visit to santiago de compostela and our stay at @paradores the hotel is next to the cathedral and was originally built in 1499 for the pilgrims who traveled the camino de compostela, making their way to the cathedral and the tomb of st. james. the outside of the cathedral takes your breath away. i could have stared at it for hours. sadly the interior was under full restoration but we were still able to make our way to the tomb. the hotel is a museum itself and we could have wandered the halls and grounds for days. hands down one of the most unique & amazing hotel experiences we have ever had. we look forward to returning in 5 years as it is on my bucket list to hike a portion of the camino when i turn 60! #santiagodecompostela #thecaminodesantiago #spain #roadtrip #travel #luxurytravel #pilgrimage #theway #travellover #spanish #spaintravel #cathedral #historiccity #unescoworldheritagesite #travelphotography #travelgram #oldtown #gothic #romanesque #architecture #architecturelovers #santiagodecompostelacathedral

D is for daypack

this is the best way to carry everything you might need on a walk. your daypack is second only in importance to your footwear as a badly fitting pack will make you miserable.

as with shoes and boots, shop around. try packs on and put some weight in them too so you get a proper experience. good outdoor shops will have weighted bags for this purpose.

straps are the most important things, those over your shoulders and those that fasten around your middle, or your hips to be more precise.

if your shoulder straps are loose that will drag the weight of the bag down so all the weight is put on your shoulders. if they are too tight then they will be uncomfortable and restrictive.
for full days walking, i would suggest that you find a day pack that has them because they take about 80-90% of your pack's weight off your shoulders. a chest strap
will keep the shoulder straps in place and reduce any swaying of the pack.

it's important that you wear your pack how it's meant to be worn and not over one shoulder as after a while , or at the end of the day you will definitely feel uncomfortable as you are putting your body out of alignment and this can lead to a number of posture and mobility problems in the future.
daypacks/rucksacks are measured in litres and for a full day hiking /walking/tramping/trekking you will need one of 10 – 30 litres size.

i shall do a post in the future of what to put in your daypack.

If someone asked me where they could find the boulevard of broken dreams i’d point them just past the intersection of not enough time and not enough energy
.
in my life, energy management had often taken a back seat to time management. i found it much easier to manage my gmail calendar than the invisible and confounding ebbs and flows of my life force 🧬
.
my energy is constantly waxing and waning based on a myriad of different and incredibly complex factors, many of which i’m not even aware of. unlike my gmail calendar i can’t see next week’s total available energy or divide, measure and divvy it up with complete (even if only theoretical) mathematical precision —energy is something i feel from moment to moment. and if you are anything like me, how you’ll feel tomorrow is nowhere near as easy to predict as how many hours you’ll have tomorrow. coffee or no coffee ☕️
.
out of absolute necessity, i began to make major changes in my lifestyle to restore the flow of my energy. the results were astonishing. i felt like a different person at the end of it. where had this person been? i couldn’t believe what i had begun to accept as normal over the past few years. it made me cry
.
the irony is that it takes a lot of time and energy to reclaim more of your energy, but it’s a process of self discovery that can shift everything 🌀

St. jean-pied-de-port to roncesvalles. 8 hours, 24 km up and through the pyrenees mountains:⁣

there was plenty of advice as i embarked on my journey: “beware the first day! it’s the hardest trek!” “do not leave town without water! there are no water stations in the mountains!” “whatever you do, do not turn back and retrace your steps...you must always walk forward, never look back. follow the arrows….”⁣

well... i had already walked a full kilometer straight up when i realized that i had totally forgotten to fill my precious water bottle. the horror! i had been mentally and physically preparing for this moment for months! how could i have already failed!? to turn around right out the gate for something as basic as water could set off a domino effect, a break in the time/space continuum, a ripple of wrong experiences and encounters that were not meant to be mine! what if i don’t meet the people i was supposed to meet? what if i miss out on the experiences that were destined to change my life? do i risk dehydration on the mountainous border between france and spain or do i alter my official start time and accept that everything happens for a reason?⁣

i chose hydration and turned back to st-jean pied de port, adding two useless kilometers to what was already the most strenuous day of the entire month-long pilgrimage, sheepishly walking past the pilgrims who were eagerly tracking westward to santiago.⁣

what a blessing this 40-minute delay became, because it set me up for what was to become the most magical 27 days of my entire life!⁣

Day 1. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
welcome to this new page. if you are here, it may be because you are a pilgrim, yourself, or are curious about the camino de santiago and want to see more. i offer my own perspective, an illustrated one. while on my camino, i tried to sketch as often as i could. the way taught me many things, most important, to be present and focus on the horizon; not on the final destination hundreds of kilometers westward, nor on matters back home. the horizon was my daily goal. sketching and journaling helped me capture the moments in a way photos and even videos can fall short. for me sketching is more visceral; recreating what my eyes behold allows me to retain not just the sights and sounds but the smells, the feeling of the wind blowing my pages, the honest emotions that overcome me moment by moment.
⁣⁣
it was the challenges i faced, both psychologically and physically, and the people i met along the way that have inspired this page. each painting represents a day from my camino, but i also receive and recreate moments from your journey, as well!
⁣⁣
the pilgrimage is both tremendously beautiful, but a great physical and mental struggle. for this reason, i have added captions under each illustration. not all captions match the narrative depicted in the paintings. for the most part they are ambiguous extractions from my journal, quotes by fellow pilgrims, vague impressions, or day numbers. the text is there to help juxtapose my daily mindset with the scenic imagery as i made my way through the spanish countryside. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
those who interact with my work are invited to create their own corresponding narrative for each painting. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
for prints or custom pieces made to your specifications, please send me an e-mail, dm or tag me #caminomomentspage ⁣⁣
buen camino! ⁣⁣ (2"x2" ink & watercolour on paper)

Hello everyone! so exciting to #takeover this week for the women’s photo alliance @wpanyc. i am vicky azcoitia @vickyazcoitia, a documentary photographer passionate about nature and how people connect with it. as a pilgrim, i’ve walked the saint james’ way pilgrimage in the north of spain twice and about 600 miles each time - the longer you walk the better. during my way, i interviewed and photographed pilgrims from all around the world, and i’m interested in getting a psychographic profile of the real pilgrim. this a long term project not finished yet. it’s exciting to share this work with you! thank you @jmcclurephoto ·

#1 "i started to follow the yellow arrow out of inner necessity. the reason of my pilgrimage is my granddaughter who lives attached to a machine. i cannot see well, but i can hear; i’m a musician. the camino for me is like music, a place where i can go to heal something, and pray." alejandro arráez

#2 "i moved from ethiopia to canada when i was a child. morning walks are my favorite thing, but i hate rainy days. i’m here learning to be myself, but i pray for the environment everyday. the camino is pure love". selam al-azar

the camino project:
it’s not a hiking trail but a pilgrimage, and the real pilgrim leaves from home. a journey to all religions, historical roots of europe, it’s traveling through beautiful countryside and timeless villages, it’s rediscovering the pleasure of being in direct contact with nature. since it was named unesco’s world heritage site 1987, hundred of thousands of people walk it every year (last year over 300.000 people). it’s also an invitation, to rediscover yourself through introspection and new encounters, to change habits that have been making you unhappy, to build unexpected friendships and give yourself new challenges. ·

ПРЕДОСТАВЬТЕ ВАШИ ДОКУМЕНТЫ

Итак, символы камино. Один из первых символов, с которыми вы встретитесь на Пути - это Паспорт Пилигрима - Креденсиаль (credencial). Ну давайте попорядку. Пилигрим - это человек идущий по Пути Сантьяго вне зависимости от целей - религиозная, духовная, срртивная или глубоко личная. Название пилигрим или паломник сохранилось из прошлого и прочно вошло в современный словарь Пути.

Так вот, Паспорт Пилигрима. Он является его удостоверением личности. Без этого паспорта вас не пустят на ночлег и не выдадут документ, подтверждающий, что вы прошли маршрут.
Это небольшая книжечка, где записаны личные данные паломника, а рядом с ним находятся пустые окошки, куда ставятся печати в подтверждение пройденного пути.

В концу путешествия он выглядит уже изрядно потрепаным, но очень ярким, полным печатей и тёплых воспоминаний.

В офисе паломника у вас проверят даты и количество пройденных километров. Для паломников минимальная норма для получения сертификата 100 км пешком, а на велосипеде или верхом 200 км

We said yes! okay… well i guess i said yes first, but if alby wasn’t planning to propose on dec. 1, i was.

from the top of our capsule hanging off the side of a cliff in the sacred valley of cusco, peru, we decided to be each other’s adventure partners for life.

only accessible by via ferrata, both to get up to the pods and then to get back to them after dinner and a complementary bottle of wine each, the day itself was a breathtaking experience of a lifetime. after refuelling with incredible andean cuisine, we headed back to our capsule to sit on the rooftop to check out the unobstructed view of the stars above and the life in the valley below.

after sitting down for a while, alby complained of his foot falling asleep, and asked me to stand up so he could get comfortable again. when i stood up, he shifted to his knee and pulled out a woven golden grass ring from brazil, accompanied by some kind words, and i responded with what i had been carrying around in my pocket for the day, a fish scale from the largest freshwater fish in the world (also from brazil) with a note and question on it – lighter than a rock, as was a primary mode of communication on the camino where we met.

so, here we are:

500 miles walked on the camino de santiago (and i would walk 500 more…) 👫

4+ years of navigating long distance, 24-7 travel together, living together, and all the ups and downs in between 🧭

25 countries experienced together… and counting 🌎

2 road trips (by car) in canada and oregon 🚙

1 motorcycle trip and breaking down in the middle of the australian outback with nothing more than feral donkeys, a tent, and each other’s company 🏍️ 1 very uncomfortable camel ride 🐪

a master’s degree, trade certificate, and an adventure tourism business – all gateways to many future endeavors 🎓

countless old friends, new friends, families all around the world...the only thing still missing here is a dog 🐕

and the journey of a lifetime to go 💍

When i walked the camino way across spain five years ago i started off really hating downhills. now i’m not a person who uses the word hate. but i hated them. this is an actual picture of a hill on the camino. no, the 800km across spain is not flat. ups and downs most days for 26 days.
like this hill descending on rocky paths was dangerous and started to freak me out. nope i did not enjoy the downhills.
what i found was that i could not have the up hills that i enjoyed unless i also had the down hills. so i made peace with the down hills on the camino and in life. life is never flat and never just an upward climb. it’s always up and down and all around. that’s success in anything. life, business, relationships and walking across a country.
we get to experience it all and i found out it was so important to make peace with the journey. ✌🏼💜🏳️‍🌈 #thepresentdaywisewoman #success #thecaminoway #thecamino #spain #thecaminodesantiago #thecaminodesantiagocompostella #relationships #businesswomen #professionalspeaker #inspirationalspeaker #nsa

The cathedral in santiago de compostela is the final destination for the many camino pilgrimage routes across the region. we walked into the plaza after 31 days and 400mi on the road. i’m not a very emotional person but the overwhelming sense of accomplishment combined with the energy of fellow pilgrims hugging and celebrating, all in front of this incredible piece of architecture, brought a few tears to my eyes. definitely an experience i’ll never forget!

I took my first steps on the camino de santiago a year ago today. it was a fantastical day as i had dreamed of walking the camino frances for many years. i would lie awake at night wondering how and when i would be able to fulfill this dream to be a pilgrim and walk the way from france to the western most points of spain. •

in a waking dream on 9/18/18, on the most glorious day ever created a wish was fulfilled. i was in utter bliss for where i was and what part of the earth my feet were set upon. the camino de santiago is a set of paths or ways that have been walked for 1000’s of years dating back to the druids who would walk to the western most point of spain to do their solstice ceremonies. because these ways are walked regularly for 1000’s of years there is what is thought to be ley lines or massive energetics along these paths magnifying the experience of your journey. •


magic was with me throughout my journey in so many ways from the people, the weather, the fruit on the vine and even the messages in the rocks and the clouds. the camino is a spirit and the spirit spoke to me in many ways along my month long walk, and still speaks to me now. if i could i would go back right now and walk it again...with a much smaller pack and a lot less weight. •


i wanted to share my absolute gratitude for all that conspired to inspire my camino. i am so grateful for the people and the places and all the things i experienced along my way. i miss you all and love you so much. •

buen camino!



i love you. me.

One year ago this day, and two weeks into my pilgrimage on the camino de santiago--a double stage effort--for a walk of 31 miles, taking me from belorado to the amazing city of burgos and two days of rest, a private room, as many showers as i desired to take, laundry, some of the best food i had ever eaten, and a rejuvenated spirit that would carry me the into the 310 miles (three more weeks into the spanish horizon) that remained of my 500 mile journey to reach santiago de compostela.

this day is etched into my soul. pure exhilaration stemming from physical exhaustion. it was one of the greatest feelings of my life providing affirmation that i can do more than i ever thought possible---that i could not only live; but, could thrive!
whatever journey that any of you may find yourself on today, whatever challenges you are being faced with, whatever amount of weight that you may be straining to carry; know, that this same affirmation is present now for you for i am passing it on to and for you. you are loved. you are needed. you matter. you are.

tú no eliges una vida; tú vives una!

Realized i never shared with you guys much more of the camino we did after exams last spring! the day after we finished second year, my roommate and i ✌🏻 out to spain to make up for all the sunshine and miles we missed while studying! ~130 miles in 6 days later... epic adventure that i find myself thinking about almost everyday (especially all the amazing food we ate along the journey..and especially the quantity of food you can eat after that much walking!!). anyone else done the camino?!

Before my dad passed away we often cleared our schedules to sit down and watch movies. right towards his end he showed me the film the way. it has 100% changed my perspective on life and death. i watched it again last night and cried as hard as the day my dad passed away, and i woke up this morning and counted my blessings. 🙏🏼 one of my favorite quotes today comes from the film. - “you don’t choose a life dad, you live one..” if you had the opportunity to meet my old man, you know he lived his life well. #accountability #mentalheath #betteryourself #theway #thecaminodesantiago

#0 run - yep still resting.
man the fomo is so strong as i let my right achilles settle down and ready myself for the start of the camino de santiago next friday.
this morning as i sit not far from the canal latéral à la garonne, enjoying a flat white and some good french brunch i can’t keep myself from looking longingly at the riverside path that meanders for miles either side and wonder why i wasn’t out pounding it before dawn.
it’s been like that this past few days as we ventured up into the stunning blue village of chefchouen in morocco and i heard the surrounding majestic mountains calling my name ... then down into the port of tangier where we exited morocco and arrived in spain at the port of algeciras, both offering long port-side cycle ways that whisper ‘come on you know you want to’. but continue to resist as i have the pyrénées mountains now within sight. we have made our way by bus and plane through the most incredible spanish city of seville (gotta get back to that city) and finally landed in france at toulouse yesterday. as we flew over the pyrénées i whispered ‘i’m coming soon’. it so good having my best friend and wise advisor @lorraineforlong alongside reminding me of what really matters right now ... the camino (the walk), not the run! #thecamino #thecaminodesantiago #elcaminodesantiago #pyrenees #fomo #bonjourfrance

People
____
that’s what makes the camino de santiago so special. a special, fairly narrow path on planet earth where people are open, honest, humble, and ready for depth. these are ingredients for genuine connections and incredible friends. this is what sets the way of st. james apart.
____
so here’s to the people who made my camino journey so special. i’m so thankful i literally crossed paths with these inspiring pilgrims... to name a few.

Sunrise over a field of sunflowers. a new day, a new horizon. the morning is fresh and there is a stillness that is only broken by a chorus of cicadas#thecaminodesantiago#pilgrimage #journey #nature #spiritual#sunflowers#sunrise#photo#horizon#newday#newadventure#stillness
