Take the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage in Spain

Many people seek the real meaning of their lives, and while some of them try to find it by traveling from place to place and try seeing life in a different light, others take a sacred pilgrimage to address the sole strength of their faith, hoping to know the real reason why they exist in this world.

Some individuals feel lost, not in the current world they live in but in the path they’re taking in the road of life. Malcolm Mckay of Daily Mail UK experienced the same thing and tried to search for himself through the Way of St. James or the Camino de Santiago (“Walk of a Lifetime: Why the Epic Trail across Spain is a Route to True Happiness”).
Below is a succinct excerpt from his recent article:
The whole walk covers two mountain ranges, plains and a huge variety of countryside in between. It passes through orchards and vineyards, along the occasional highway, takes you into villages, towns and even through the cities of Pamplona, Burgos and Leon… If you’re interested in glorious scenery, palaces (Gaudi’s Episcopal palace in Astorga), holy places (the magnificent cathedral in Burgos), Spanish history (Leon’s monastery of San Marcos), contemporary Spanish life (and good times) or food, you’ll find it on the Camino — and all that is before you’ve reached Santiago and its majestic cathedral.
Catch the rest of his interesting article here, and you, too, will surely consider taking this route—either following the pilgrimage or simply appreciating the scenic views along the way.

So start planning your trip to Spain today!
