Day 00 - Atlanta Departure

May 4, 2015

Well it’s been almost two years to the day since my first walk on the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Even then, when I completed it, I knew that it wasn’t over for me and that I’d be back again. For the past couple of years, I’ve been taking Spanish classes and online programs to better prepare for my return. Today is the beginning of another adventure in Spain. I will leave Atlanta on a Delta non-stop flight to Madrid.

I will be posting daily, if WIFI is available, and I look forward to sharing all my sights and adventures with my family and friends, so I hope that you enjoy the blog and pictures. So let the journey begin…Buen Camino!
