Some may remember my #WATWB Post on ‘I’ll Push You’ that began like this:
When I was walking the Camino Portugues with a friend we knew we would hear stories about blisters, luggage lost, and other more dramatic stories. Then there are stories like this one about Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray. It is told in the book here below. In a nutshell – two lifelong friends decide to take the Camino Frances from the Pyrenee Mountains to the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela. This journey is intended to be a walk of around 800 kms (500 miles). Patrick does walk. Justin is in a wheelchair! Yep, that’s right! When Justin wanted to do the Camino his friend said: “I’ll push you!” More here
Well… the story continues…
A regular podcast called My Camino – The Podcast (funny that), featured an episode with Australian Tony Jacques who was part of a special Camino with many pilgrims who did the journey with various abilities.
You can have a listen here. It is a wonderful tale to warm the cockles of the heart, particularly those who like to walk and support people of different abilities.
There were other posts from my Camino Portugues on my blogspot such as this one. Until next time, keep walking.
