The Way

I saw 'The Way' starring Martin Sheen and directed by his son Emilio Estevez last week because I am very keen to walk The Camino de Santiago one day. Maybe soon. The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James (Santiago in Spanish) in Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. The most popular route is the Camino Francés which stretches 780 km (nearly 500 miles) from St. Jean-Pied-du-Port near Biarritz in France to Santiago. 

The movie is a sweet, tear jerking load of predictable, sentimental twaddle but I loved it all the same. 

I'm 50 at the end of next year so maybe that would be the time to walk it. Better start preparing my feet.

Buen Camino!
