CAMINO de SANTIAGO: Walking Across Spain by Brandon Wilson
Submitted by Anonymous on 2008-11-03 14:24:30 (via www.pilgrimstales.com)
If the idea of exploring Europe is met by a "been there, done that" response, think again. There’s a unique option whose concept started long before the advent of those whirlwind package tours. Walk the Camino de Santiago across Spain for an intimate exploration of a country steeped in natural beauty, art, history and faith…"

Yes, any trip of this distance is a physical challenge. However, you set your own pace and will meet many people along the way to offer encouragement. Look at spring and fall as the best, uncrowded times of year. Good luck.

This is a great arcticle!, everyone should read it
it's an incredible trip, where one grows
mentally, and physically into a stronger person
and if you have the time one should stay in the cities along the way like Leon for a day or two on their way to Santiago and visit the churches, museums, and parks get to know the older parts of the cities enjoy the fine wine, and food
if you enjoy wine get a bota de vino for your trip
if you have doubts of doing the trip by foot
many choose to do it on bicycle
the roads can be rough so a mountain bike is a choice, either way it is a great experience
Spain is a beautiful country
enjoy!!

It is a beautiful journey and chance to slow life down and enjoy the simple pleasures along the way. I've walked it twice and the route from Seville to Santiago as well. Everyone does it at their own pace and you'll see folks 18-80 on the trail. There are frequent places to stay for little cost, so you may even break up the stages into smaller pieces. Other "peregrinos" lend encouragement and you'll be surprised at what you can accomplish--one step at a time!

HI, my name is Vicki and i am planning to walk the camino from seville beginning this winter. I ordered the book on the Via, and have yet to read it. if you have a chance, could you please email me a bit of information about your trip. I will be going alone, i plan to leave in January and take a few months so that i can stop in cities. is the trail well marked and safe with lots of places to stay? i am used to traveling alone, but not on hiking trips. any reading suggestions or anything else would be most appreciated. best, vicki
