Once away from the holiday costas, you could only be in Spain. In the cities, narrow twisting old streets suddenly open out to views of daring modern architecture, while spit-and-sawdust bars serving wine from the barrel rub shoulders with blaring, glaring discos. Travel is easy, accommodation plentiful, the climate benign, the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food and drink easy to come by and full of regional variety. More than 50 million foreigners a year visit Spain, yet you can also travel for days and hear nothing but Spanish.

Being a pilgrim is a way of life. There is a true sense of camaraderie between fellow pilgrims along the Camino. You become a part of history, joining the many people who have walked the religious pilgrimage over the last two thousand years. Everyone shares a goal, to reach the city of Santiago, and every step forward takes you just a little closer.: by claireletitia, Views[534]
