The title of our blog comes from a quote by Pualo Coelho: "A boat is safe in the harbor, but this is not the purpose of a boat." He was a Brazilian author who walked the Camino in the mid 1980s, wrote about it, and inspired others to do the same. Of course, the boat must be prepared before it sails. This theme of risk vs. reward is on our minds as we step into the next phase of our lives. We are so thrilled and a little apprehensive at the same time.
