Giacomino/Camino2015 and Beyond

Larry travel blog
Welcome to my trip journal!
Bob Fernandez and I started the Camino last year and walked 145 miles from Saint Jean Pied de Port in France to a small town near Burgos, Spain.
We had so much fun and met so many fine people we decided to finish the 350 miles of the Camino de Santiago this year.We leave for Madrid on Sept.7th.
For many It can be a religious pilgrimage,and for my friend Bob it is. Myself, being a Pagan, I like the fact it existed before the Catholics usurped it. I plan to walk to Mucia, the end of the known world in ancient times. The Camino parallels the Milky Way and the Romans called it The Via Lactea. It's said the pagans believed souls left the earth at Mucia and took their place as stars in the Milky Way. I like that and I will go the extra 60 miles to Mucia.
Those of you who know me know I just like to walk and talk to people, so I will keep a daily journal and hope some of you will check in once in awhile to see how the 2 old Geezers are doing! Check out the song on You Tube" I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)", by the Proclaimers,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbNlMtqrYS0. That's our song!
Buen Camino!
Well, now I am in Italy, a small town just above Rome called Anguillara .Main reason is to house/dog sit near Rome and preview the Via Francigena, a Camino that starts in Canterbury England and goes across France, down into Italy all the way to Rome. I will sample a short piece of it, take italian lessons so I can be more fluent while on it, and of course enjoy the people and the food.
Stay tuned while I stumble my way around this great little country.
Ciao, for now,
Lorenzo
