“Caminante no hay Camino” Antonio Machado

There is a good weather window for two or three days.  So tomorrow we depart for the San Blas Islands.   We have been looking towards this destination for quite some time.  The following is for all of you, each who is heading towards your own geographical or metaphysical destination:

Caminante, son tus huellas

el camino y nada más;

Caminante, no hay camino,

se hace camino al andar.

Al andar se hace el camino,

y al volver la vista atrás

se ve la senda que nunca

se ha de volver a pisar.

Caminante no hay camino

sino estelas en la mar.

Wanderer, there is no path

Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more.

Wanderer, there is no path, one makes the road by walking.

By walking one makes the path.

Upon glancing back, one sees the road that will

Never be trod again.

Wanderer, there is no road;

Only wakes upon the sea.

    Perfect. Wishing you fair winds as you sail on your path.

    Fair winds on your next leg! And if you come up with a catchy melody to accompany “Caminante no hay Camino” feel free to bust out the trumpet and send us a little movie. Or at least an mp3. We know you’ve got it in you!

  3. Beautiful and true. And if that was your own translation, I’m impressed by your Spanish, Lasch!
