If you are a friend on facebook or like my photography page, you will already know. But in case you missed it I am now on my final countdown for multiple operations “get fit”, “clean house within an inch of it’s life”, “finish packing”, “learn Spanish”, “set up business/ blog to survive while I’m away” and “finish all outstanding editing/ paperwork”. All rolled in together it’s AKA “OPERATION CAMINO“!
My husband and I are heading to Spain in 16 days to walk the Camino de Santiago. Starting just over the border (oh, and over that wee little mountain range the Pyrenees) in France we will walk just under 800km over 30(ish) days to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. There are so many reasons to do this walk, which I may delve into later, but really it all just boils down to “Why not?!”
We are raising money for Legacy WA, which is an amazing organisation that is in great need of support. Legacy cares for the families of deceased and incapacitated veterans, and receives no direct government funding. It relies on the support of you and me, so every single dollar counts. As we are also counting down to ANZAC day it is the perfect time to stop and give thanks to those who have given so much in order for us to to live in the fabulous way we do, in this fabulous country of ours. To give thanks to those who are currently serving, thanks to those who have given their lives, and thanks to the families they have left behind.
Our target is $3000 – which is just under $4 for every kilometre we will walk. I’ll be posting photos as we go (as much as I can! Not too sure how much internet we will have), so if you enjoy flicking through my blog just think of your donation as entry to an online charity exhibition 😉
Buenos dias y buen camino!
