El Camino de Santiago

Receiving a pilgrim / Recibir a un peregrino

Every year around this time I search for the latest photos from the summer’s collection of trips from El Camino de Santiago, the ancient route filled with stunning scenery which spans between France and the north of Spain. If you ever have a chance to walk or bike even part of it, you ought to give it a shot. Beware- if your feet aren’t ready, you’ll earn yourself some blisters in the first few days, but once those heal you’re in for a fantastic journey you’ll never forget. So grab a walking stick and a scallop shell to wear on your hat or bag, and follow the yellow arrows marking the way.
