My earliest memories instilled a strong sense of wanderlust in me and my brother and sisters. Our father read his childhood favorite adventure book to us-Richard Haliburton’s Book of Marvels and shared his own escapades, and we’ve been hooked ever since.
Ever since my studies for a master’s degree in Spanish Literature in the 1970’s, I have dreamed of taking the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. My studies for my Master’s of Religion from Iliff School of Theology deepened my understanding of what the experience could hold.
This past fall, I was finally able to walk the Camino from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago, a journey of almost 500 miles. Next summer I am returning to Spain to show a small group of fellow explorers the hightlights. Many friends have been intrigued, but aren’t sure they can walk the entire distance or can’t take more than 2 weeks vacation time. This trip will be the perfect combination of riding, interspersed with short walks, through the most spectacular landscape.
My co-leader for the 2015 summer tour is my dear friend, Dra. Lourdes Morales-Gudmundsson, Chair of World Languages, at La Sierra University in Riverside, CA. She will be sharing information in the fields of Spanish language and history, while I will be offering resources to enjoy the art and architecture and lead discussions on the religious traditions and interfaith issues.
