365: Day 78 – Fantasy Travels

There are two travel adventures I fantasize about: backpacking through Japan, and Camino de Santiago.

I fell in love with Japan and want to explore as much of it as possible for a month or more. Traveling from one city or town to the next be train and they get lost walking through the streets with my camera in hand. An observer of local life and trying as much variation of foods as possible.

The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage that runs along northern Spain from the Pyrenees to the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. It is nearly 500 miles long and takes about a month to complete on foot. I’ve seen parts of this pilgrim trail in my time in Spain and even a few pilgrims. I have desired to do this pilgrimage since I first heard about it in Burgos.

Both of these travel adventures will be ambitious, but I’ve got time to plan. 🙂
