500 miles on foot. Bunk-beds. Blisters. Stunning landscapes. World-class snorers. Hot searing sun, freezing cold rain. Those are just a few of the things one experiences walking the ancient pilgrim path, the Camino de Santiago. Lydia B. Smith, director/producer of the new documentary Walking the Camino, joined us to share a little about the award-winning film.
The up-close look at one of humanity's most time-honored traditions, follows pilgrims from all walks of life as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. In the process, we witness the Camino's magnetic and miraculous power to change lives. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago and, most importantly, their personal journey to themselves.
