Hi, I am Nomad Peah – a bold, loud, humanitarian, music lover, Pilgrim, and funny lady from Texas, following her wanderlust.
Wanderlust is more than a funny name for those who like to travel, it’s a calling to see the world and meet people different than myself. I cannot imagine my life without answering this calling, and this website is meant to chronicle these experiences.
I hope you enjoy my blog, my photos, and my commentary about the space in which we live.

2015 Special Project:
Leah’s Camino 500 for MS
A few years ago I promised myself I would walk the Camino de Santiago before I was 40. At 37, the Way of St. James is calling, and I can’t resist. In an effort to raise money for the National MS Society (a cause very close to my heart) and to bring deeper meaning to this journey, I have promised myself I will walk 500 miles across northern Spain! 500 miles! My journey wil begin at the end of May 2015 and I will plan to complete the Camino Frances (The French or Saint James route) by June 10th 2015.
Please help me achieve this colossal goal!
I know 500 miles (or 800 km) sounds crazy and I am sure it will be very hard. Frankly, I know the years in which this is possible are numbered. Physical challenges make daily life hard already and I can imagine this will be exponentially more difficult. For over 1,000 years, pilgrims have traveled this road for religious and personal reasons. As someone with a personal stake in this cause, I believe raising awareness and money for MS research is worthy of the enormous amount of energy, pain, and personal stamina this will require.
100% of the target fundraising goal will go directly to the National MS Society for research. I plan to underwrite the cost of traveling to Spain myself and, in the spirit of a true pilgrimage, I have asked people like you to sponsor the estimated costs for room and board – about $30 per day. Most people finish the walk in 5-6 weeks. We’ll see how fast my legs will travel.
No gift is too large or too small. Every bit helps!
