Holy Year from Pamplona 2010, SJPP 2011, Lisbon 2012, Le Puy 2013, Vezelay (partial watch this space!) 2014; 2015 Toulouse-Puenta la Reina (Arles)
With apologies to British poet Edward Thomas - 3 March 1878 – 9 April 1917- first day of the Battle of Arras - and actor Tony Robinson , “much has been written of the travel - much less of the road - the Camino is not just a means of getting from point A to B to SdC, it is a meditation, the rhythms we set up along us, helping us to think and feel and to create and to get into ourselves, the way we interact with nature along the Camino, the way we invested it with life, the Camino goes up the hill goes down the hill true but no it is us that doing the walking while the Camino doesn’t move but it’s us feeling as though the Camino is alive”.1579378884808.png
