The Long Walk of Transition
The Camino de Santiago is a long hike or pilgrimage route across Northern Spain. The ancient pilgrimage, for centuries has been a place where people of all faiths come to contemplate, walk, talk to the Creator, walk some more and enjoy the simplicity the camino invites. In reality there are many routes and ONE WAY! Traditionally the pilgrimage started when you walked out your front door. This tradition requires tweaking for the majority of pilgrims today. As the saying goes "tu camino es tu camino" (your camino is your camino!). We are all on our own path, precisely where we are meant to be. Yet we do not journey alone!

LENGTH: 7 days/6 nights; 5 days of walking.
DISTANCE: 100-120 kilometers total (62-75 miles)
The route chosen for our purpose is the Northern route for breath-taking beauty and typically less pilgrims. If done in total, this route starts on the French/Spanish border in Irun and lasts for five weeks culminating in Santiago, Spain. Many variations of the same route exist. Yet the Cathedral of Santiago de Compestela where St. James the apostle is believed to have been buried is the definitive culmination of all Camino routes. The guided portion of the northern route for our time will begin outside of Santander and end near Cuerres** - May 26-June 2, 2020.

“Whenever I felt sorry about this self-chosen hardship, I remembered faithful people who had no choice about their journeys. I recalled stories of refugees forced to walk far greater distances on hard roads in strange places…perhaps in a small way this journey could teach me something about solidarity with such folks”
— Paul Boers The Way is Made by Walking
“This will be a life-long memory, and I am thankful to have done it with a wonderful group of women.”
