First click here and then come back and let’s talk for a minute. While visiting Jean-François’ site, be sure to actually click on one of the entries from his 166 day, 3200km (2000 mile) pilgrimage in 2008. His pilgrim passport (credential) is completely interactive, a work of artistry, dedication, and reverence for the chemin de […]

In this 2010 Spanish film two ghosts tired of living in limbo decide to walk the Camino. The money quote: There are no pretences about the fact that this particular pilgrimage will be performed by two men wearing white sheets with stickers for eyes. What’s not to love? More information on the film here. * April […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – April 14, 2013

When I first travelled to England with my wife to meet her family, we spent several weeks driving around the countryside. I pulled the car over about every ten minutes to take picture of sheep. I have the photos to prove it. But none of them are as good a picture as this one. Pierre […]

Some great images from Izzy Hudgins walk here. * March 31, 2013 Photo of the Week  Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week Archive Twitter: @caminophotoofwk Each week adamnathan.com features an image or […]

Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – March 31, 2013

There are cairns the entire length of the journey. Usually they pop up along the side of the route or at crossroads. Small sprigs of flowers are placed near them, pictures of loved ones, random objects. They start to become a barely noticed part of the journey. But there are places along the way where […]

Provocative questions are a big part of the Camino experience — and not just the ones that come up over dinner. Many of them push on a question that can be very difficult to answer: why are you doing this and what do you expect to happen when you arrive at the end? The closer […]

Elton John’s Maple Drive Oscar Party (3/3)

The wait staff, of which I was a member, could tell you the exact ingredients in the dishes. They could explain with words and subtle hand movements how the parts and techniques comprised the sublime culinary whole – gesticulating “smoothing” and “sprinkling” and “gently folding” like auditioning hand models. They could tell you about the rich mineral […]
