Hiking the Camino de Santiago

Ralph and I have hiked several of the routes of the Camino de Santiago—in Spain, France, Portugal, and a tiny bit in Switzerland. As you will see below, we have hiked many of the longer routes in stages. All told, we have hiked more than 3,000 miles of these European pilgrimage trails.
