Hiking Across Spain

So while I'm planning my next big trip to the Patagonia, I figured I should also put together a post about my last big adventure: Hiking across Northwestern Spain on the Camiño Francés de Santiago.

In June of 2012, I and a good friend hiked approximately 220 kilometers from Pontferreda to Santiago de Compostela.  During our hike on this ancient pilgrimage route we walked through ancient towns, scenic countryside, and mountain valleys (and over some too), on our way to Santiago de Compostela, an city located in GaliciaSpain. Pilgrims of many kinds (religious or otherwise) have walked this route since the 9th Century to the tomb of Saint James, located in the city's Cathedral.  Hands down, its one of the best things I've ever done.  While I could write lots and lots about this trip, my photos tell much more of the story than my worlds ever could.  In the past I've put my photos in a variety of places, but this website provides a great new way to share with them with a whole new audience. So, for the first time ever, the best of my photos from my trip to Spain!
