    Pre-Camino Travel Ideas

    I am currently walking the CdM and came upon Peter's memorial during a rainstorm. Rummaging through the undergrowth for a nice stone to add to the growing pile, I found a stick and picked it up. Perfect size and weight for me. As I placed a piece of quartz down and said a few words for a man I...
