On June 5th I left to participate in El Camino de Santiago, a journey that has changed the way I view myself and the world around me. El Camino, known as The Way of St. James, is an ancient pilgrimage trail. It is meant to follow the footsteps of the Apostle St. James, who made the journey himself with nothing more than the clothes on his back.
I began my voyage in Saint Jean where I prepared my mind, body, and spirit for the long road ahead. While there were some rough patches, I was able to meet some amazing people and visited beautiful sites. I traveled a total of 550 miles on foot in a span of 33 days where my journey ended in Finisterre. – Liz Torres
