Wayfarer: Some Fellow Pilgrims

Alto de PerdonThis week’s Fellow Wayfarers is going to be a little different. Instead of profiling a specific individual that I know, I thought I’d gather a collection of videos I found on the Camino de Santiago and share the views of other pilgrims.

I have never met any of these people, but their stories and videos have still made an impression on me.

First up is the husband/wife team who hiked the entire Camino Frances — him carrying a 60lb pack and her toting their 6 month old baby. Below is the video of them leaving Leon, the starting point of my trek (they have a separate video for each day of their pilgrimage).

There’s also a number of blogs dedicated to the Camino, written by people like me who are either preparing for their first hike, are experienced peregrinos, or are simply sharing their stories gathered along the way (or in the case of the last link, a Canadian travel company that specializes in Spain and offers tips to pilgrims). Here are a few of my favourites:
