Felices Fiestas from Rabanal del Camino and The Camino Cafe! See the notes below for the names of Albergue and Cafe owners in the opening of today’s interview. I’m so happy to post this interview that is so full of hope, love, and light as we close out 2021. Suzanne, Camino Pilgrim, social worker, teacher, and writer, offered so much wisdom about walking the Camino. What started as a way to “reset” at age 60, turned into way more than Suzanne ever anticipated. So much so, she wrote a book to help her process the amazing journey she started in St. Jean. Many times during this interview, I just wanted to stop, and, as they say, “drop the mic”. I found her insights and the way she articulated them so profound. I can’t wait to read her book about walking the Camino Frances and how the connections she made along the way turned into moments of wondrous illumination. Buen Camino!
