At a moment when so many are struggling and in need of community, we decided to lead a Virtual Camino to awaken the pilgrim spirit in all of us.
After 20 years of walking the Camino de Santiago, I must confess I don’t think I have previously explored fully what it means to be a pilgrim. This year, with at least half of our tours canceled due to the pandemic, I have had occasion to really think about it.
We spoke to retired Senior Chief Petty Officer, decorated Operation Enduring Freedom veteran and author Brad Genereux about how he set up Veterans on the Camino to help lead other veterans on the Spanish path to peace.
We caught up with Patricia Schultz, author of the phenomenally successful travel book ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die.’ Patricia is joining us at Duperier’s Authentic Journeys to host the Camino walking tour on the León to Santiago de Compostela leg of the St James Way from September 2 to 12.
We’re thrilled that one of our clients has agreed to share her experience of walking with us three times in Spain and Portugal.
This is the first in what we hope is an ongoing series that tells of people’s experiences along the Camino. We start our interviews with a client who returned to walk with us on a second pilgrimage, this time with friends.
I had the great pleasure to speak with Brendan Bolton of Project Camino recently.

2016 was a great year thanks to all of you. We are looking forward to a spectacular 2017!
