Drawing a Spanish Pilgrimage: Daily Scribbles of El Camino

Bronson and I have just finished a 700km walking pilgrimage across Spain called El Camino de Santiago. Walking every day through sun and rain, on blisters and beaches, always together wasn’t simply a physical journey. Have you spied the metaphor yet? Our walk for a month represented and symbolised the journey of life – the peace, the pain, the ups and downs. It also gave us a huge variety of moods and situations to test our relationship. (P.S. we passed.) We had an incredible luxury – time to think. At the end, a very special thing happened. To find out what, keep reading the daily posts.

I’ve decided to try to make some money by drawing. The best plan of action to achieve this goal, I’ve found, is to draw. So every day I drew a picture and wrote some words about the day. I’ll be posting one a day from now. Since we didn’t actually start the walk for 4 days, I’ll pop all the pre-Camino days in this post.

Any Camino questions, e.g. accommodation or what to bring? Just ask.

We've arrived to a blissful holiday atmosphere in San Sebastian and can't quite imagine walking yet.
