The sun is shinning in Galicia, at least for the moment, and we can soak up the feeling that spring will soon be here bringing more pilgrims on the Camino trails making their way to Santiago de Compostela. Living here we anticipate this time with great expectation and delight as we get these all but brief moments of breaks from the rain and sunshine blesses us with the promise of spring and a summer of pilgrims walking, biking, and horse back riding along The Way.
Rainy days are perfect times for curling up with a good book and having an adventure of the mind and spirit discovering other people’s journeys and exciting camino tales. Such will be my pleasure as again “synchronicity” blessed me with a wonderful surprise a gift from Kurt Koontz and his book A Million Steps. Still feeling a “newbee” to facebook, blogging while living in the camino where there is a natural draw to nature and away from technology I happened to be quite lucky in reading what had been posted on the wall – just a few posts longer than usual – and there was Kurt’s most generous invitation and offer to gift his book. I was thrilled and so very grateful to Kurt for his most thoughtful and kind gift. It will be an inspiration for me in continuing my Camino journey while living here and enjoying the Camino from green – GREEN GALICIA. Here’s to enjoying the winter rain with a great new book – MUCHISIMAS GRACIAS KURT!!!

for your great picture and inspiration for another year of Camino memories!!!!: Feliz Navidad- My pilgrimage shell from the Camino de Santiago- June/July 2013
As we are nearing the end of the year remembering many wonderful CAMINO experiences I would like to wish everyone ULTREIA!!! Ultreia or Ultreyal is an ancient Galician sentiment amongst pilgrims with its origins derived from the Latin word ultra. A wish of unfailing courage shared between pilgrims encouraging them to continue their journey of discovery and adventure.
Wishing you continued strength to go after and achieve your dreams and may 2014 be all that you want it to be:
E ultreïa Lets go farther,!
E suseïa Lets go higher!
Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo – ULTREIA!!!
With the popularity of the Camino growing more movies, books, applications and games are in development to share the history, culture, and beautiful scenery of this ancient pilgrimage route inviting you to join in your own adventure of discovery.
Such is the case with El Codex Del Peregrino and Norbert of Bricasard who “hides both a past and a secret. He must fulfill a mission, but he has los his memory and is alone and wounded.”
“The Pilgrim’s Codex” is an action graphic adventure in 3D in which, as a pilgrim in the Middle Ages, you will join Norbert through 6 chapters up to Santiago de Compostela. Help him confront the Dark Knight and live an epic adventure along the most magical pilgrimage route existing. The Way of St. James which pilgrims, nobles and commoners have walked and the Knights Templar have guarded for centuries.
Mysterious characters, ancient legends, myths, dark forces, trials all challenging you to accomplish before you can reach your destination: the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.
Have fun and enjoy this new mysterious game of adventure. For more information please visit: http://www.elcodexdelperegrino.com
