This sounds like the setup for a joke but there is none. There are two Polish women in our yoga class who did the Camino last year with a third woman. Everybody says the journey changes you and in their case it drove a permanent wedge between them and the third person. We are planning to do it with my cousin and I’m hoping we experience a different sort of change. But I have no expectations.
Most people do the Camino for a reason. Often it is a spiritual one. In the movies we have seen about the trip pilgrims ask each other why they are doing the journey. I would not know hoot answer that question. Maybe I will know once we have done it.
