Losing Her Way and Finding Herself on a Spanish Pilgrimage: An elder walks the Camino de Santiago de Compostela
Show Notes

Mary Louisa Cappelli was already in great shape, hiking five miles a day regularly. When she decided to walk the Camino at age 67, her main fear was getting lost.  Mary Louisa had already achieved so much – recognition as an ethnographer, a teacher, a surfer, and a mother of five daughters. What drove her to walk the fabled Spanish holy trail, the Camino de Santiago de Compostela?  Host Jean Feldeisen, a therapist and Crow’s Feet writer, talks with Mary Louisa about her solo pilgrimage and some of the lessons she gleaned from other Elder pilgrims she met along the way.
