camino lola
From April 24 - May 21st, 2007, I walked from St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela (the camino francés), roughly 776 km across Spain.

Known as the Camino de Santiago, or the "Way of St. James", this ancient route was walked by pilgrims of all sorts and has been since the tenth century.

Many pilgrims walk the camino for different reasons and more and more walk it each year.

These photos only are a fraction of what can be seen on the way to Santiago, but they capture a bit of the essence of what the camino was to me...
