On May 27, 2011, we will lock our front door and set off on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, in northwestern Spain. We'll fly to Paris... Take a high speed train (TGV) to Bayonne, France... Change to a slower train that will take us to St. Jean Pied de Port, in the foothills of the Pyrenees -- where our walk begins. On May 29, Sunday, we will set out on foot for our 500-mile walk across Northern Spain.
The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old pilgrimage trail. We join millions of pilgrims who have walked this path over the years.
Journey with us, as we post pictures and highlights of our adventure.

Buenos Dias de Burgos. Burgos is a beautiful, page city. Full of energy and excitement. The cathedral of Burgos is huge, with many towers and spires. The artwork inside is from many ages and styles. There seems to be a large church on every corner here; all catholic. Some have been converted to hotels and public use. There is a large monastery here, too. Yesterday was a local holiday to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the monastery. Tomorrow we set out for a long 30 km day. Sorry we are not publishing pictures. We have not had good Internet facilities available.
