Camino De Santiago
The Camino De Santiago (The Way of St. James) is a 500-mile pilgrimage. It starts at the Pyrenees mountains in France and finishes in Santiago, Spain at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela where legend has it, the remains of Jesus’s apostle, Saint James the Elder, was buried. “The Way” has been a Christian pilgrimage for well over 1000 years. Today, the modern day pilgrim hikes this same trail for many reasons; spiritual, health, adventure and/or physical challenge. On this trek you will hike through mountainous regions, farmlands, forests, and Medieval Spanish villages where you meet up with fellow pilgrims to have communal dinners and enjoy fine Spanish wine! At night most pilgrims stay in Albergues (hostels just for pilgrims), while some who want a more private experience stay in small hotels.

If you are interested in a more personal story about this pilgrimage I recommend Marcia Shaver’s book, The Artist’s Journey: The Perfumed Pilgrim Tackles the Camino de Santiago. Her book paints a great picture of what it will actually be like each day on the trail. She also gives a very detailed packing list of what to take with you and where to find your trekking equipment.
