May I please ask the newbies and the experienced pilgrims "why do we take the Way of St James?".

That was so perfect...... I think that people are drawn/called to the Camino because they are unknowingly attempting to awake the inner us, to make that connection, and that something, something, calls - each and every one of us .. calls until we surrender and take up our rucksack and go.
Amazing and eloquent...I was teary when reading this blog...
I have less than 2 months (Aug. 10th) before I leave my home to walk the camino (first one). I so agree with the above reasons! I am already tearing up when I watch videos posted here! I think I have already begun my camino!Why do we go on pilgrimage? Because Santiago/St Jacques/St James is very insistent when he beckons you. The idea to go is planted, becomes intense and won't leave you until you give in to it. You don't always know why you're going but you have a feeling you're going to find out something vitally important.
Some of us are slow learners and are called back again ... and possibly again ... and ...
Or perhaps that's just an excuse to have "a brief escape"
