Reasons Humpty Dumpty is doing El Camino de Santiago

  • Checked bag to Madrid rather than all the way through to Pamplona.  Luckily had time to run around the Madrid airport and check in my bag again.
  • Arrived in Pamplona with half my itinerary.  Went by memory (not a good thing after traveling for 24 hours) and took a cab to the same hotel I’m booked in the first night.  Was cooly informed by reception personnel that the only room they had available was for 3 persons and they would not budge on a discount.  As a windy road cab ride back down to Pamplona did not sit well with my queasy stomach I took it.
  • The chilly reception staff didn’t mention that I should make a dinner reservation in the dining room so I sat at a high bar table in the main traffic line for arriving guests making a bee line for the elevator.
  • Elevator?  What elevator?  I carried my bags up two flights of slippery wood stairs.  Good thing I packed light.
  • Forgot my Camino maps provided by the self guided tour company.  Lenni, my fabulous travel agent and friend arranged for me to have “orientation”  this evening at 6:00.  Thanks Lenni!

Learning experience:

  • I’ve traveled by myself but rarely without Lewis over the past twenty years.  Thanks, babe, for taking such good care of me!
  • Clean off our home desk once and for all!  We each leave things for the other there and as a result, can’t find anything.  My map and itinerary are buried there somewhere.
  • Get rid of clutter, it is killing us!
  • Get more organized.  I used to be super organized but it takes time.  Make time!
  • Stay off the computer.  Constant technology is stressful and I’m supposed to be staying away from it.  So far I haven’t relaxed, the whole point of this trip.
  • Learn to meditate.  Maybe I can find an app for it but isn’t using technology for meditation kind of counter productive?
  • I brought a new coloring book and pencils; use them!
