From America to Santiago de Compostela Paris

Luce and Daniel

 

What a nice visit at Compostelle 2000 this morning ! The Paris association received two pilgrims from America :

 

Luce and Daniel  left Montreal three days ago to walk from the French capital to Santiago de Compostela on the Way of St James.

 

Our cousins from America already know a lot of things about the Way : "We've been preparing that journey for four years !" they say.

In Canada they took part to the Meeting organised by the local association and trained and trained again, jogging and hiking. No doubt the backpacks were checked many times...


 

 

They are starting their Camino with a real pilgrim spirit. Like Christian they have decided not to book their nights in advance, they will see all along the good surprises that the Way is preparing for them. Some very nice acquaintances for sure. And they are still amazed by the low price of the local productions here, wine for instance...

Three days to go. Ph. JFF

 

At Compostelle 2000 they got some extra information about the best way to get out of Paris easily. And how to get in touch with the local volunteers who may help them to be welcome in families on their way...

 

Seventy-five days to make their dream come true. A dream that could be the journey of their life. Listen to that whispered secret : they might buy two rings on the way, have them blessed, and if all goes well, back to Canada, a ceremony would take place...

 

The first step will be on Easter Sunday at 9 at the Saint James Tower. Some pilgrims might walk with Luce and Daniel as a goddbye gift. We warmly wish them an excellent camino

 

in France, in Spain and for the rest of their life !
