Walk the Camino de Santiago (read all 3 entries…)
Not sure when...

...but hopefully in the next year or two I’d like to do this walk. I first heard about it when reading Paulo Coehlo’s book, The Pilgrimage. I’m a big Coelho fan and try to read everything he has written. Over the passed 8-9 years, though, the thought of doing this walk has grown in me. I really think it would be a great experience. I want to do the French Way, not only because it’s the route Coelho took, but also because it looks the most interesting to me. Here are some photos that were taken by a guy who walked the route. It looks breath taking.

Gumersinda I'm back!

Great pictures

The French route always seems to be the most popular one. It has great landscapes. From where do you plan to start it?

Once you enter in Spain, the route ends being the same for everyone. You will be crossing beautiful villages with a lot of history on them.

I’ve never done El camino (maybe in future), but everyone who has finds it is a very intense experience. However, you need to prepare a bit first to be in a good physical condition.

I am...

...in fairly good shape now, but I will definitely train prior to doing something like this.

I will start at Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port near the France-Spain border.

I definitely think it would be an intense experience. If walking El Camino is something you wish for, I hope you get there, as well. :)

I saw this in a movie...

There was a movie that came out about a year ago about this. It was called “The Way” ... it was really really interesting to see how the main character dealt with the people, the problems, act…. awesome movie!

Good luck!!

I saw...

...that movie, too. :) It’s a great film. I bought it a few weeks ago when it came out on blu-ray, actually. I think I’ve watched it three times since then. lol

I first heard about the Camino de Santiago about ten years ago when I read Paulo Coelho’s book The Pilgrimage. It’s a fictionally embellished account of his actual walk The Camino. I’ve been in love with the idea of this trip ever since then. I’m working on my Spanish now so that hopefully I can at least be able to order food and get beds at hostels and such. :) I can’t wait to do this.

Right on!

Sounds like your inspired! That’s awesome. I think I’ll have to Netflix it again now that I know someone who’s going to do it! You *definitely need to let me know when you’re going to do it! You’re inspiring me now!!!
