    As the 2019 Camino season is starting to get busier I thought I would do this as a bit of awareness in case it helps. As individuals, films affect us in different ways. There was a scene in The Way where they are seen walking through a field to the pilgrim statues just outside Santiago. I...

    My "The Way "- the movie story!

    I have been itching to tell this story so here it is! In April, 2015 I was approaching Leon on the Camino Francis for the 3rd time.
