Walking the 1000-year-old pilgrimage trail across northern Spain will be the focus of a presentation at the Putney Library on November 15 at 7:00 pm. The slideshow and discussion will be led by Betsy Bates, Paul LeVasseur, Cicely Carroll, and Bob Lawson.
The Camino is nearly 500 miles long, running from the Pyrenees in France across the northern portion of Spain to Santiago de Compostela. Running from village to village, across farm fields and beside streams and rivers, the path is now walked for many reasons and by many people from many countries.
The presenters have each walked on the Camino before and will share their photos, experiences and reflections from their walks.
There will also be a short introduction to a walking trip on the Camino this coming April that is being sponsored by Travel Fever Tours of Putney. Participants will walk for 10 days along the Camino from April 8-17, 2019, starting in Pamplona. Each person can then continue on the Camino independently or perhaps return in future years to complete other sections of the walk.
