The experience of walking Spain’s thousand-year-old pilgrimage trail will be the focus of a talk and slideshow at Brattleboro’s Books Memorial Library on November 12, 2019, at 7:00 pm. The library is at 224 Main Street in Brattleboro, VT.
The slideshow and discussion will be led by Betsy Bates, Cicely Carroll, and Bob Lawson of Dummerston and Putney.
The Camino is nearly 500 miles long, running from the Pyrenees in France across the northern portion of Spain to Santiago de Compostela. Winding from village to village, across farm fields and beside streams and rivers, the path is now walked for many reasons and by many people from many countries.
The presenters have each walked on the Camino before and will share their photos, experiences and reflections from their walks.
There will also be a short introduction to group walks on specific portions of the Camino that are run by Travel Fever Tours of Putney. Participants can walk for 10 days along the Camino from April 7-16 and April 17-26, 2019, starting in Pamplona.
