Wandering Loose in Italy: Birthdays

May 16, 2022
Birthday Moon over Assisi

What’s it like to have a birthday on a Camino?

Suzan, Utah, Carolyn

People randomly show up in a piazza in Italy and sing happy birthday to you.

Gabi and friends

You get a happy birthday chorus from Austria

Hector Pedregon

Someone you knew from home meets you to buy you a drink in Piazza Commune

A marching band plays for you

Someone special shows up at the train station

Josette, moi, Ann, Kenton

And friends buy you dinner! Plus, you got here walking over mountains and through valleys and fording rivers and long, long uphills. Seventy has started very well. Thank you for all your greetings.
