Before walking the Camino, I always had a fear of Facebook. As I started meeting people on the Camino and not wanting to lose them, I faced my fear and joined. It was also so much easier and faster to share my photos and communicate with everyone back home. I was able to immediately connect with new Camino friends (I did not have my phone), and the people back home were so encouraging and loving in their messages. I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the whole system. I also appreciated being able to use Messenger to speak individually with people as though I did have my phone. I am so grateful for joining Facebook because I still communicate with the people I met on the Camino. Facebook and Messenger offer an instant and free way of doing that.
