Other threads on this forum have mentioned his stellar documentation of his 2017 Camino Frances pilgrimage, capturing magnificent shots with his drone.

    Way of Saint Francis

    We just finished the Way of St. Francis in Italy, walking from La Verna in Tuscany to Rome. Fellow Camino enthusiasts: If you are looking for solitude and a new challenge, this might be it. Our journey is at carryoncouple.com. This is a tough walk, but we thought it was wonderful!
