Santiago Charity Walk – An Update
Fiona and Jo are now well into their 110km trek from Sairra to Santiago de Compostela which they hope to have completed by 22 March.
The walk, which is in support of kid’s internet safety, has started off well with the making of a new friend – a large dog they met on the way!
The first full day along Camino de Santiago (also known as the famous pilgrimage of Compostela – the route leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago) started out misty before the midday sun began to shine. After 12km – and a 4km wrong turn! – through farmlands, the pair arrived at a beautiful little stone house for an overnight BnB.
The pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostela cathedral (where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried) is one of the most famous in the world, and many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth.
