George Young, a British pilgrim age 82, traveling on foot to Santiago for the fourth time in his life. Previously, he made the pilgrimage on the Camino Francés, on the Camino Primitivo - having also started his journey in France, going through Oviedo, Ribadeo, Mondoñedo and A Terra Chá, and Ruta de la Plata, starting in Seville.
Having spent his entire working life to the field of engineering and architecture, and regardless of who confesses that his main motivation for doing the Camino de Santiago is religious, Young notes that the art of the Pilgrim's Way, in fact, of all the Pilgrim's Route "is something that is stirring. In particular buildings. But also the music, which is another form of artistic creation which he feels closely connected.
Young is today one of the older pilgrims, not the oldest, of those who have walked the Camino English to Santiago.
