El Camino de Santiago

If you speak Spanish, learn a bit about the ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela here. I walked the Camino two years ago (270 miles of hiking over 17 days, I think) and was just getting a bit nostalgic about it, as I realized I'd forgotten all about St. James' Day when it happened (July 25th). Lots of hard work, but well worth it.
