France/Spain

The Camino de Santiago is a 500-mile hike across northern Spain. It takes about 30 days to complete on foot. You carry everything you need in a backpack, and follow the arrows and shells so you don’t get lost. Scroll down for photos of my adventures. 

PART 1: St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, France to Burgos, Spain

PART 2: Burgos to Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre, Spain

PART 1: St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, France to Burgos, Spain (273km/169 miles). I could not finish the pilgrimage and had to fly back home that summer because my foot was ridiculously swollen and no longer fit inside my shoe.


PART 2: Burgos to Santiago de Compostela to Finisterre, Spain (708 kilometers/439 miles). Also spent one day sightseeing in Lisbon, Portugal, where I ate percebes, or barnacles! So grateful to have been able to return and finish the Camino!
