El Camino de Santiago

"5ks may be all the rave, but would you walk 75 miles? In Europe, through mountains? On something called The Way of St. James?

El Camino de Santiago is a 75-mile walking pilgrimage from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela (St. James of the Field of Stars). 

Yes, 75 miles on foot.

I guess it depends where you start, but most commonly the path begins in France.

People from all walks of life—not necessarily only Catholics—travel it, which is such a blessing. What a way for God to reach out to every one of us through the beauty He’s created in the land and our bodies."
