The ways of St. James rest on over one thousand years of history and legends (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Way_of_St._James ).

Everyone that I had met who'd been on the "Camino de Santiago" was so excited to tell about their experience. It was as though, their adventure had brought them back to essential things of life. Their stories were about human kindness and brotherhood.
Not all, but most people who walk the Camino de Santiago are not just trekkers. They are open-minded and friendly people.

You know what they say...
"It's not the destination that's important; it's the journey..."
