Thinking about that camino

The fact that I wanted to crop out the bottom of this photo says there might be serious validity in considering ways to get the time to walk Spain's Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James), or trek England's walking trails, or those found anywhere else.

This Patty Kirby photo is proof that I really do work, seen here interviewing U.S. House Representative Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, at Texas A&M International University, and proof that -- like too many other in my line of work and in the U.S. -- I need to get serious and sweat it off. So, my mind keeps floating to northern Spain where I have walked off plenty of pounds in previous vacations while enjoying that fantastic, flavorful, healthy Basque cuisine, great wines, seafood, fresh vegetables and eye-dazzling scenery while improving my Spanish. Anyone wanna go with me?

I'll keep the photo around and might use an uncropped version for one of those before shots. After? Well it could be as fine as my finest in previous decades, or just a whole lot better than now. Either way, the mind is turning toward serious self-improvement and getting there could be a matter of good taste, too.

My feet were a problem for a while, but they're not now, so the only barrier is time. I walked a few miles of that Camino several years ago near Pamplona and have seen many others out on the trail, so my mind's already got a picture of the adventure. The bottled mineral water tastes very good along that ancient trek as well.
