Taking a well-deserved break is something we all should do from time to time, however, what we do during the break is what makes it worth-while or not. I believe we all need to take a number of days off a few times a year from the mundane, both work and home. The question is usually what to do and where to go. Staying away from the most well-known holiday centers and travelers spots is, in my opinion, the best way to go. Doing something unique or traveling to a place which you don't frequent as a rule is the ideal way to refresh mind, body and soul.

The route I walked, the Camino Frances, is just one of many pilgrim roads to Santiago, but it is the most popular and well marked. It was featured in the movie, The Way, starring Martin Sheen, and several Camino books.
A weekend in the Comoros
Why You in Comoros?
“Why you in Comoros?” asked the security official inside Prince Said Ibrahim International Airport. I looked at the man, sweat already dribbling down my forehead due to the lack of air conditioning inside the poky terminal building. A small group of people had gathered to observe the hassle I was receiving.
I felt like a kid again as we endured sweltering heat in the back of Peter’s little car, careening down the broken roadways of Uganda. You know what I mean – being so excited to go, then wondering if you will ever arrive. Getting out of Kampala alone was a trick; you must puzzle piece yourself through the stifling traffic. Sometimes this involves squeezing through a tiny slot and hoping the two cars converging on either side of you will stop.

My aunt, uncle, and cousins moved there, so my parents courageously packed four of us five children into their Chevrolet and drove one thousand miles--but that's another story.
