In the past I’ve created an endurance event to celebrate my 50th (a fifty-mile run) and 60th (a 600-mile bike ride) birthdays. I don’t want to wait until my 70th birthday before I do something unforgettable, so I’m planning to celebrate my 65th birthday with The Camino Walk.

Don’t worry…I have something challenging already in mind for my 70th birthday.

While there are many ways of the Camino; the Frances way, the Portugues way, Camino Primitivo, Camino Le Puy, and more. I plan to walk the Camino del Norte.

Camino del Norte, or the Northern Way follows the Norther coast of Spain. The Northern way is one of the oldest routes and is the second longest route running 865 kilometers or 537 miles completed in thirty-four stages or daily walks that will take me across four regions: the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias, and Galicia.  This route is more scenic, but also includes more challenging terrain the other routes, so it is less crowded than the more popular French way.

The Camino del Norte begins in Irun, near the French border and ends in Santiago de Compostela.

The planning has just begun, so check back often to learn the details of this exciting adventure. 

You are welcome to join me for the entire adventure, or a portion of the walk. The route takes me through the beautiful cities of San Sebastian, Bilbao, Oviedo, Santiago, and many small towns and beautiful villages. Let me know if you are interested.
