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.

Rain, rain go away
It has been raining steadily the past couple of days. It makes the walking seem more like work as we are more focused on staying dry and watching where we step to avoid mud and PUDDLES. We have walked a couple of shorter days to keep moving while we rest (relatively speaking). We are now in Najera a small town with lots of storks. They are nesting all over the red cliffs against which the town is nestled and there must be at least 8 active nests in the church bell tower. It is very cool and wet tonight. Warm weather and sun are expected tomorrow.
