My name is Nancy Mead. I first walked the Camino de Santiago in the year 2000 from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago and on to Finistetre. I was about to turn fifty. I wanted to reflect on where I had been in my life and to think about where I wanted to go. The Camino did all of this and more. It taught me much about myself. Somewhere in the middle of Spain I met Barbara. Since then she and I have met nearly every year to walk for a month somewhere in the world.
