Women Over 50 Walking the Camino de Santiago

  1. Women Over 50 Walking the Camino de Santiago Nicole Christina 43:54

Anyone out there believe in synchronicity? Many of you know that I am walking part of the Camino de Santiago in May. I’ve been thinking, planning and talking about it alot. One night I was scrolling and I fell upon a group called Women of a Certain Age–WOACA. I was intrigued. Then I was surprised– more than 10k members. Comments stating how special this group is. They debated on the best walking shoes and if you really need a pee rag. I looked up a little bit about the FB group’s administrator…wait! A social worker? Yup. Synchronicity.
