    Thank you Fr Richard for sharing your Camino with us. Whilst listening to your interview I found myself smiling and recalling our own Camino. It is 5 years today since my husband and myself started our Camino from St. Jean de Port. Walking the Camino was one of the most significant experiences of my life. It will stay with me forever and, like you enjoyed the simplicity and connection with this beautiful world. Yes, the people do make the Camino and it is so wonderful to experience the goodness in them. We plan to walk the Camino again and like you not sure which path to take. God bless you Fr Richard and Buon Camino. Linda & Peter
