My Camino Saint

Today the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of St. James, apostle and martyr.

There are several references to James and his brother John in the Gospel in which he doesn’t appear so admirable. 295 more words

This is my favourite statue of Saint James, Santiago Peregrino

He is on top of the Parish Church in Chinchilla, an ancient hilltop town near to Albacete. 79 more words

Portomarin to Palas de Rei (17 miles and 65km to Santiago)

Anticipating a very long walking segment today that included many uphills, we made a decision to use a service on the Camino that will transport your backpacks to the next destination. 196 more words

“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” ~ Linda Hogan

Day 20: Resting in León

Yesterday I walked 37.9km to the grand city of León. And so today, we rest, explore, and eat!

Just before the last (and most painful) 12 km to León. 105 more words

Reflection

Sarria to Portomarin (15.1 miles and less than 100km to go)

We left Sarria early in the morning and quickly passed the 100km marker! This is significant on the Camino because it is the minimum distance that a pilgrim must walk to be able to claim “walked the Camino.” Consequently the number of people on the path was much, much higher than before. 154 more words
