For years I’ve dreamed of walking the Camino de Santiago, an ancient network of pilgrim routes leading to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Finally I have the opportunity. The winter is over and the warmer months are coming, and I leave for Spain on April 23.

I’ll be walking the most common route, the Camino Francés. The trail spans 490 miles (791km), beginning in St. Jean Pied de Port, France. As I travel, I’ll record the stories of those I meet along with taking their portraits. You can follow my progress here and on Facebook at Faces of the Camino.

If you’re curious about my past trips and the photos I’ve taken, you can find more at Daniel Kole Photography and on Facbeook at facebook.com/DanielKolePhotography.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful blog. It was a kind of bittersweet read for me, having just returned from Spain from a short trip on the Camino only. That week was enough though, to inspire me and i am sitting in my hometown slightly lost…not being able to think of much else but returning and to just keep on walking. I stumbled over your blog on facebook…i was lucky enough to briefly meet some of the people you shared your journey with. Alejandro, Luca and Virginia. They somehow made their way back to Güemes/Santander where i had to end my trip (only for now hopefully)…as i already found the entire network of paths, albergues and whole system very inspiring and comforting, reading about people i’ve met along the way in a post by an American…well, i have to say it humbles me and makes me feel very connected to/in this world.
    Buen camino in your new endeavours, wherever they may take you!
