The Way of Saint James crosses the North of Spain East to West spanning almost 1000 km. Let me explain to you why this medieval pilgrimage route has become so popular with hundreds of thousands walking it every year. This is an epic adventure with an infrastructure that facilitates planning and allows you to do cross country trekking with a very light pack. The sights along the way are incredible, the people authentic, the food great, the territory unparalleled, the culture engaging and you can easily do it all for 30 Euros a day. In my talk, I will touch on history, address worries you might have, explain why you can do it, describe what a typical day on The Way looks like and finally lead you through a virtual journey of the first third of The Way. I will teach you my secrets: what phone company to use; the best free Camino guide; the best places to stay, where you can get a free breakfast in the kitchen of a twentieth century hospital; what types of food you must try; where to start and stop; and how to get a Pilgrims Passport. Come and join me.
