El Camino from Roncevalles to Saintiago

Home / Roncesvalles To Santiago / El Camino from Roncevalles to Saintiago
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

…………..and my journey commences in 33 days, one step at a time…………….

EL CAMINO from Roncevalles to Saintiago and who knows maybe even Finisterra depending on time. 790 km on foot over 33 days ………, yes I can do this!!  Armed with nothing just my back pack, walking sticks and dear friend (Shereez) and many many many thoughts flashing through my mind we will take our first steps on the morning of 20 June 2012!!

El Camino also known as “The way of St. James” has won the recognition of the United Nations and been given World Heritage status on account of its historical and spiritual significance. The camino ability to transform and elevate human consciousness remains undiminished over the centuries.  Countless millions have walked this path in search of a deeper meaning to their lives.  This is my time to join the thirsty band of pilgrims along this ancient path of enquiry!!  I will trust the universe to guide us (Shereez and myself) through the stunning beauty of the landscape through which the Camino winds its way to the fabled city of Saintiago and maybe on to Finisterre, the “End of the World”!!
