In 2012, our family hiked 121+ kilometers of “The Way” of Saint James in Spain. Hiking the Camino de Santiago was one of the best experiences ever. At the time of our adventure, our kids were 2, 5, 7 and 9.
When we reached the Pilgrim’s Office (Oficina del Peregrino) in Santiago, the crowd cheered for us. It was hard to hold back tears. At the time, it was apparently a rare sight to see an American Family with four young children make the pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
It is true, The Way changes you. Forever.
