By Guy Thatcher
Man Thatcher walked the Camino de Santiago, an historic pilgrimage course, hoping to find the cause of the compulsion that drove him there. What he chanced on in its place was once the undying land of northern Spain, attractiveness, silence, mountains and plains, rain and incessant sunlight, snow in might, heartbreaking climbs, fatigue, and harm; pleasant and alluring humans, new friendships, depression, transcendental pleasure, beginning and dying, and churros con chocolate. He got here away with a renewal of his trust within the striking goodness of normal humans from around the globe as they shared a unprecedented trip.
Join man Thatcher as he stocks his days and his stories at the camino with you.
