| || Santiago and pilgrimages are key words for Cornelia : In Spain she had a training period at the Pilgrims Office at Santiago. |
In Germany she studied the pilgrimages for disabled on wheel chairs. In Ireland she works for the 'Irish Society of the Friends of St James and manages their facebook page. She's a member of a German Pilgrims Association, too.

There are lots of stories to tell about my journey. The first exciting one happened in Paris when I was about to buy a pair of walking sticks.
