If you are like most of the world, you probably have never heard of the Kumano Kodo. I didn’t know of it either until I was introduced to the Kumano Kodo trek by friends with whom I walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I certainly knew where Japan was, but I had no idea where the Kii Peninsula was. However, after completing the Camino, the Kumano Kodo was certainly on my radar.

The short, simple answer is because I can. The longer answer is to celebrate a milestone anniversary of a second chance on life. I write about my backstory in When All Balls Drop as well as in many blog posts.
