The Camino de Santiago de Compostela
The Camino de Santiago de Compostela is a traditional Catholic pilgrimage route across northern Spain to the city of Santiago de Compostela. Here the reputed remains of the apostle Saint James lie.
This route has been followed by pilgrims for over a thousand years.
Today many, like myself, who are not Catholic, walk the route for our own spiritual reasons.
My friend Diana and I, walked from just over the French border at Saint Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela and then on to the coast at Finisterra (the end of the Earth). We walked 500 miles (800 km) in 7 weeks and then took 5 days off by the coast to rest and relax.
It was one of the most amazing things I have achieved in my life. Everyday something new presented itself. We met wonderful people and had some amazing experiences.
I am delighted to be able to share some of these fantastic times with you through my website. I hope my experience inspires you and others to walk the Camino also.
