The best plans don’t always work out

well life happens and even the best laid plans don’t always work out. I am very disappointed to have to cut short my current Camino plans due to a health issue I must address at this time.

I don’t want to go into details other than the fact that all will be ok AND I will be back to resume my Camino in honor of my sister at some point in the next few years. The Camino will always be there!

My biggest disappointment and heartfelt regret is that I will not be able to fulfill my volunteering in both Moratinos with my good friend Bruno and in Santiago with my good friend Daniel.

If any of you have extra time and were considering volunteering either during the period of June 9-30th on the meseta or July 1-7 in Santiago, please let me know.

I am sad that I must change my plans but I do want to give a shout out to the great folks in Burgos who took care of me. I want to let folks know that I still stand by my original statement shared back during my first Camino in 2011 – so many people in Spain really care for us pilgrims in so many ways.

I WILL be back, healthy and able to continue my pilgrim trek.
I have lots of gratitude in my heart…

  1. Wishing you well, Sylvie! Time and time again the universe has stopped me in my tracks so that I could address something to make my life even better. May that be the case for you, and the Camino welcome you back when you are ready!

  2. I’m so sorry you had to cut your Camino short. We miss you at home and look forward to hearing all about this trip. Your health is more important than anything and I am sure you will bounce back on your feet once you take care of this issue.\
    Love you much sister.

  3. Like you have told me several times “it wasn’t meant to be” I know you well enough to know in your heart you wanted to do this trek and you will do it again for certain. I’m so sorry you have to cut your trip short and I suspect you must be so disappointed but I also know you will make up for it in other areas of your life.
    Get well, rest assured that all your “followers” will do their own pilgrimage with you in mind. You are such a power of example and I admire all you do. With love, I send you a major hug and look forward to seeing you soon. Love you little sister.

  4. Sylvie, this is the first I have checked in to learn of your pilgrimage…this time, this most important one “with your sister.”. So very sorry you needed to curtail your journey and appreciate the insight you have offered re the Camino. Blessings walked with you.
