So, before Camino, Jake & I were in Germany for a conference. The conference was ok; the evening speaker was actually quite good, but the rest was par for the course: pretty mediocre. A few breakout sessions – like 1 – was useful. BUT our room was swanky, so that was nice, and the shower had phenomenal water pressure (and I’m not just saying that because my shower at home was, at the time, a mere trickle), so basically it was luxurious. Oh, and the food was particularly good, considering it was conference food. The setting was gorgeous, so it was more than a little irksome that they kept us busy all day, but at least there was something nice to stare out the window at.

The main highlight was friends. We got to hang out with some dear friends and that was just…refreshing. It is nice to be with people who like you because they just like you, as opposed to people who tolerate you because they have to.
