In the fall of 2011, Homer writer, photographer and adventurer Christina Whiting walked forty days and 500 miles across northern Spain on the ancient Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail, along varied terrain and in varying weather and temperatures. During her time, she met other pilgrims from around the world who walked the path for reasons as individual as they were.
Christina will share stories and images of the joys, challenges and surprises she encountered as she walked. She will also offer practical advice for those planning their own pilgrimage and answer questions.
