... other gifts I've been given toward my journey that have arrived in different forms: words of wisdom from one of my friends and mentors, Rob Schware (Executive Director of Give Back Yoga Foundation) reminding me how much growth there is to be had from a place of discomfort; my mother in law, Pam Kvitne, researching how to travel safely; my father in law, Dave Kvitne, giving me his sleeping bag ...

Along with the hikes, we have added our backpacks. The question now we are asking each other often, "Why are we doing this?" It seems silly to work this hard in retirement. The Camino is referred to as 'The road of Reflection', so maybe we will figure this ...
