My Camino Film

I don’t think that my homesickness for the Camino will ever fade.  It holds such a special place in my heart, as I know it does for all who have walked its stunning, spiritual path.

While I snapped tons of photos on my journey, my only regret is that I did not take more video to capture the many steps and changing landscapes.  Had I had plans to make a little film, I would have hit the record button dozens of times more.

Nevertheless, the moments I did capture on my iPhone were enough to weave together a sweet little story of some of the Camino’s many faces and places.  Makes me smile every time I watch.

Do you want to walk the Camino now?

  1. Nice movie, good to see the Camino again. Makes one want to walk it again (which is in the plan anyhow). I walked April/May of this year and your 7 minute movie is bringing back a lot of memories again! 🙂

  2. Nice to see your 7 minute video, it makes me want to walk the Camino again (which is in plan anyway). I walked in April/May of this year, you clearly a little later. Great to see the different season and still recognise many of the locations.

    • Thanks for watching! You should check out some of the other Camino videos on Vimeo. There are some really professional ones that will take you right back.

  4. The Camino will forever and ever be in my heart. I can’t wait to walk another! If you want some more aloneness, definitely think about the Norte. We only met about 20 others in the first ten days. It’s also beautiful and physically challenging.

    • You have completely convinced me to do the Norte. I’m sure it would definitely be a unique experience with less people. I think I’ve got many more Caminos in my future, I just hope I will always be able to find the time.

  5. You and Cat have both really brought the Camino to my attention. I did a 5 day trek in Nepal and I was dreading it before I went. I ended up really wishing I did the 10 day one! How long did it take you to do the Camino? A few weeks?

    Beautiful video by the way. I really felt all those emotions you must have been going through!

    • Nepal! That sounds amazing. After the Camino I am really interested in doing more long treks. The Camino has been the best thing I have ever done. I can’t say enough amazing things about it. I broke the Camino Francés into two summers. St Jean Pied de Port to Burgos in 12 days and then Burgos to Santiago in 20. Thanks for watching the video and let me know if you have any more questions about the Camino. I love talking about it. I just wish I had more time these days to write more posts about it! By the way I just applied to BEDA for next year.

    I love it Kara, makes me want to take the pilgrimage across Spain! I know how amazing it was for you. I might have to pick your brain.

  7. I stumbled across your blog and just wanted to say that this video is great! I’ll be on the Camino this summer and am soaking up as much info as I can… thanks for sharing some of your experience!

    • Hi Nadine. Thank you! I was the same way before I walked…reading and watching everything I could. And even after walking I’m still like that. I can’t wait to follow your journey on your blog. It’s going to be amazing. Buen Camino!

  8. I’ll be leaving to live in Logroño, Spain this September, and it’s one of my goals during my time living in Spain to do the Camino. I loved your video. It was very inspirational and only furthered my desire to complete the trek!

    • Thanks for watching, Mike. If you ever have Camino questions, let me know. Enjoy Logroño this year. It was one of my favorite towns we passed through. I’ll be living in Madrid!!

      • You’re welcome, Kara! I’m glad to hear Logroño was one of your favorite towns. It makes me all that much more excited to move there!

  9. I found this searching for info on the Camino de Santiago, but I have to say how excited I am to see that your mom works/ed for United! My mom also worked for an airline, which has fueled my wanderlust for some time 🙂 It’s such a blessing, even though I know the job stressed my mom out quite a bit.

    • Hi Claire! Nice to “meet” someone else with the travel perks! It’s definitely a stressful job, but I’m thankful she does it. Are you planning to walk the Camino?
