I have just returned from a 6-week trek in Spain – a 500 mile pilgrimage (on foot!!) from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela, at the West Coast of Spain. It has been the most amazing experience, walking every single day between 14 and 20 miles for 40 days! I have come back with re-charged batteries, lots of inspiration and energy.
Apart from one day, I had 6 weeks of sunshine, heat, wonderful weather. I crossed the Pyrenees from France into Spain, walked across the Meseta, the Spanish high plains (lots of heat, no mountains, just lots of nothing!). I met some amazing people and have come back with impressions I will cherish forever.
Here just a few impressions from my walks in Spain:
