Hiking the Camino has been on Laura's bucket list years—and maybe it's on yours. This famous pilgrimage trail, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has attracted people from all over the world for more than 1,000 years. Our 14 day trip will combine eight days hiking the last 100 km of the French Camino de Santiago with four days focused on creative expression. At the beginning, middle, and end of our trip, non-hiking days will be set aside for Laura to teach writing and our guide, Brenda, to teach quick sketching and watercolor techniques, helping to experience and reflect on your journey. Beginners in both disciplines are welcome. After 14 days in Spain, immersed in beauty and an intimate traveling community, you'll return home with a personal journal documenting your journey.
The legendary Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage designed to stretch both your mind and hamstrings. “The Way” will stir all your senses as you follow the historic route as it curves through the verdant northwest coast of Spain.

The official Camino does end at Santiago Cathedral, site of St. James’ tomb. But other traditions tell of a pre-Christian route to Finisterre, the End of the Earth, once considered the westernmost point in Europe. Perhaps those long-ago people travelled just for adventure, a desire to experience that special place.
