When I was looking, over the weekend, for a way to walk the “way”, the Camino (just the last 100km:), with Pádraig I came across this project that two friends undertook: walking the whole of the Camino, all 800km, one by foot, the other in a wheelchair. I remembered that I had read about their story some months ago and looked it up again. They are now making a film about their journey and hope to release it next year. They are also writing a book that they plan publishing in 2017, as they announced on their Facebook site.
But above all, they thank their sponsors, one being a company in Vancouver that makes the wheelchairs they used. – It’s phenomenal. Really great. Wonder if there is a company in Europe making a chair like that?
So the plans are progressing. And there’s nothing like having a good plan, to make God smile!

Let’s think about it, Ruth.

Working on the route and the modifications for the wheelchair, Ana.

I would be interested in joining the group…then we could all share the experience with Padraig and share the experience blisters and all!!!
Sounds like great fun, Patricia! Not sure though if I like the bit about the blisters:)
