Walking the Camino de Santiago

Hello Everyone!

It is August 13th and in a short 15 days, I will be leaving for Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago, or “The Way of Saint James,” the patron saint of Spain. The Way, as it is known, is a pilgrimage to visit the remains of St. James the Apostle in the medieval town of Santiago de Compostela. While there are *many* routes for pilgrims to take, below is the route I will be following — it’s called the Camino Primitivo or the Original Way:

Many people find the path to Santiago de Compostela is a spiritual one, finding meaning in the solitude of the mountains, in the fellowship of other pilgrims, or just in the physical exertion of walking 15–16 miles per day for 15–35 days with a pack on their back. In my case, it is all three, with my personal spiritual growth at the core. Exploring new things and hopefully finding new eyes…

I promise to write more about the trip later as I need now on a quick 12-mile “practice” hike as part of my Camino training regimen…and it’s 91 degrees outside! 😦

Buen Camino!

  1. Thanks, Ralph. The Way is indeed a lovely movie, especially how the father (Martin Sheen) “sees” his son in different ways along the Camino, and finally understands what made him tick. It was transformative for him and (I think) brought him peace. I’m looking forward to the journey and will share it with you the best I can.

  2. re a client of yours. I would be interested in seeing a sample of Diversity Metrics. Do you have anything outside of what is listed in your portal to help us get started that would go well in alignment of our AAP's. says:

  3. Brian – Of all thenpeople I have had the good fortune to meet through out my life you by far are the most genuine person I have met in a long time. Including my wife. I love the simple advice that you gave us just a little bit ago and I use it a lot. Assume the positive. Wow how we want to do the opposite with human nature.

    Thanks Bro.

    God loves you. Be safe and enjoy this adventure.
