Sabbatical Pilgrimage

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.

The Long Way Home

We have arrived in Los Arcos. We have just completed our 6th day of walking. It is very hard going at times. Our feet are sore and our muscles ache.  It is very exciting when we finally arrive at our destination after 7-9 hours of walking. But, the sights we see and the people we meet make it all worth the effort. We have met people from all over the world- not many Americanos though.  We have seen so many old churches and monestaries!

Internet has been hard to find. I am now updating  the blog from my iPhone which has its drawbacks.  I hope to be able to post photos soon.

Peace to all. We continue our quest again tomorrow. Sleep comes easily these days and so I must sign off.
