We Are All Pilgrims: Faces and Stories from the Camino de Santiago

For those who didn’t know, I walked almost 900 kms from France to Spain sometime in September – October last year. I wanted to post updates of my experience on this blog but I ended up creating a facebook page called We Are All Pilgrims: Faces and Stories from the Camino de Santiago.

We walked some parts of the French Pyrenees barefoot! Yes, sans chausseurs. :)

The Camino de Santiago, also known as “El camino de santiago” or “The way of Saint James”, is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Way_of_St._James /http://www.caminodesantiago.me/)

I started my trek by hitchhiking from Brussels, Belgium to the border of France where I started walking everyday, crossing Spain going to Santiago de Compostela and then all the way to Finesterra – in total more than 870 kms of the most popular long distance trek in the world.

One day, when I have the time (haha!) I will also share some tips and advice on how to walk the Camino. 🙂
