Karen and Simon

Met a wonderful couple from Vancouver Canada yesterday standing in line to get our "credential" documenting our pilgrimage.  Karen and Simon. 

But then, as if by fate, this morning I stop in a coffee shop for a tea, and guess who is in there too?

The odds of this happening are pretty small given the tens of thousands of people here.  

We could have talked for hours, but what got my attention was that they just completed their 4th El Camino walk. They completed the French route which is the one I did years ago.  This year they did the Portuguese route. Every two years they come back for more. 

As Karen described it to me, she said that her job (stage production manager) has constant deadlines, the need for ultimate organizational skills.  This gives her a total break from that.

  1. Are you planning to follow in Canadian friends' footsteps and come back in two years and do another route?
