Rowena Riecker is trying to dream again
On the 4th April 2012, I started out from St Jean Pied de Port on a journey that would change me. My body, mind and spirit were changed by this walk. I had quite a few injuries before I started but sustained a couple of careless falls. I had to end my journey in Fromista after 351 kilometres after 24 days of walking due to a pinched nerve in my foot that wouldn’t unpinch. I was very slow and many friends I made passed on after walking with me for an hour or a day. It was an incredibly rich time of meditation, pushing your mental, emotional and physical limits. But most rich was the people along the way. So many different nationalities of pilgrims and amazing Spanish people along the way. Do it at least once in your life! I’m going to try again next year, God willing!
