|Subject: El Camino to Santiago de Compostela|
Hi Jodi......... and any one hoping to walk the Camino to Santiago de Compostela,
Here there are a few sites and Inf. regarding the Camino;
The Camino ( 500 miles way) is open both to walkers and bicycle riders, Participants must obtain the pilgrim's passport ( there is no charge at the Abbey at Roncevalles in the Pyrenees) in order to use the hostels along the route and when it is duly full and they reach Santiago to have two free meals at the parador de los Reyes Catolicos,) Great food and ambiance.
I am taking information from Sundays New York Times:, the Times recommends a few sites: http://www.geocities.com; Andrea Kirkby's site gives according to The Times practically a novel of her camino walk in 94, http://www.ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/andreak/santhome.htm; The Times also say that no pilgrim is without the book A Practical guide to Pilgrims by Millan Bravo Lozano, Everest 1997 Hi Jodi, are you planning to go? take into consideration that this is a Jubilee year, because St James' s Day falls on a Sunday ( July 25) and on top is the last year of the Century. The official web for the jubilee is http://www.xacobeo.es

Also many people as I understand do segments of the Route only. I for one plan to do this soon. This year I was a coward and drove.
