Claire Marshall, Life Lessons from the Camino de Santiago

“The Camino is tough. Blisters are almost inevitable, your back may hurt, and you will be physically tired. But a friend I met along the way reminded me that the pain is the Camino’s way of making sure you are living in the present. If the Camino were easy, it wouldn’t be the same gift. Finding meaning in the challenges, feeling joyful regardless of the pain, that’s what it’s about. Pain is an inevitable part of life; it’s how we deal with it that matters.”
