At the end of 2018, I quit my job. One week later I embarked on the Camino de Santiago with a rucksack and my camera at the ready.
I had no expectations, but I knew I needed a change. The camera became my diary and I let the journey do the writing.
The walk from Tomar to Santiago involved a lot of navigation, the way forward was not always obvious. Over the 21 days, I became better at recognizing the path, learning the markings, reading the landscape.
The journey helped me to see other types of paths. Not those which I could literally walk on, but could take me places nonetheless. It helped me realize I always wanted to become a visual storyteller. This has been a journey all its own, and I could not have known what lay behind each bend and turn. It has been a hard road to walk at times, and hugely rewarding at others. The Pathways were only the beginning.
