    What is the meaning (if any) of this bas-relief?

    The symbol of a boat with a cross and disciples is an ancient image depicting "oneness" with Christ, and today is a symbol of ecumenical fraternity. See the image from Japanese Christian artist Sadao Watanabe below.

    who knew it would cost so much!

    My advice is to sign up for alerts from Scott’s Cheap Flights. I can’t believe the deals they find. It isn’t for everyone, because the booking windows are typically very short. There is a free version that gives you about 1/3 of the deals and a modestly priced version that gives you all the...

    Hoping to walk my second camino in May 2019. Hoping to have my wife meet me in SdC. It will be our 40th wedding anniversary. Looking to treat ourselves to a week's vacation at some seaside village in Spain or Portugal. Any locations/hotels anyone can recommend?

    Some random Camino observations

    From my 2016 pilgrimage journal on this question: The villages on the Meseta typically don't appear until you're right on top of them, as they are tucked into valleys where the rivers flow. We found ourselves asking "Where is that village anyway?" And then there it would be. This was the case...

    LIVE from the Camino Graffiti...and meaness

    I appreciated your post, and thought back to the comment I made in my pilgrimage journal from my 2016 camino: "One of the interesting aspects of the Camino de Santiago is the degree to which the way has been festooned with graffiti of every imaginable style, degree of sophistication, aesthetic...
