Yesterday at the Madrid airport I had to encase my pack in plastic wrap so that I could check my trekking poles. I couldn’t carry them on board, and they didn’t fit inside.
The end result looks a lot like a Spanish ham, or Jamon!
Right now I’m savoring how, for once in my adult life, I travelled light.
I don’t want to “break the seal” quite yet, and unpack my Camino pack. I’m still coming in for landing back to my Bay Area life.
The process of unpacking the Camino experience will be ongoing, as life moves forward.
