Whether it be in La Rioja, Navarra or across the plains of the Meseta, this pilgrim has enjoyed the companionship of other pilgrims, the sights and most importantly, the... Continue Reading →

Best foot forward..
St James' Day As St James's Day approaches, I feel it is time to pay respect to the man himself.
