A Good Camino de Santiago Video

George Dirk’s “Camino de Santiago” video is a great primer video to share with your friends who may want to walk the Camino. Dirk’s simple video is actually a good coverage of what to expect as a pilgrim on your walk. I has the good bad and all points between. Fo a homemade video of the Camino this one is a good starting point for the uninitiated.

Oliver Schroer – Camino

Oliver Schroer walked the Camino de Santiago in 2004. His journey through France and Spain was eloquently captured in his writings and music. On July 3rd, 2008 Oliver Schroer died of leukemia.

His website is online today. There you can read of his experiences on the Camino. What set Oliver apart from others was his violin. He actually brought it on his journey. As the opportunity allowed he played in churches along the way. Sometimes as he started playing he was asked to leave, other times he played for hours. These serendipitous occasions were recorded by Oliver and made into a cd entitled Camino. He had a style unto his own.

On Oliver’s website his Camino story, like his music, is filled with insight and beauty.

Call of the Camino

In Robert Mullen’s A Pilgrim’s Progress post, the question we ask about our camino may not be answered in the way we expect. In Galicia amidst cattle, hórreos and an inquisitive señorita, Mullen is offered water and questions.

What is the psychology of the traveler?  Mullen initiates a study of what it is that makes the journey the exercise not the answer. Stay in touch with Mullen as he explores the question.
