Walking the Camino by Vanessa Helps

Lymington Town Sailing Club, 9 January 2019 at 7.45 pm, 

A talk about Walking the Pilgrims' Way from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela, NW Spain

The Camino de Santiago (Latin: Peregrinatio Compostellana, "Pilgrimage of Compostela"; Galician: O Camiño de Santiago), is a network of pilgrims' ways or pilgrimages leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.

LTSC Member Vanessa Helps will recount her experience of walking The Camino from St Jean Pied de Port in France, over the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela.

Why do so many people do this amazing walk?  There are so many reasons and Vanessa will share hers and those of some of the people she met along the way.

What is the Camino like as a walking route?  For those considering it Vanessa will give her honest appraisal.

The talk will be illustrated with plenty of slides.

Everyone is most welcome!

Bar and supper available from 6pm - no pre-booking.

For Members a Contribution of £2.50 is requested for the talk; £3.50 for non Members.

Proceeds to Alzheimer's Research and Winstons Wish
