El Camino de Santiago de Compostela – is also known as the Field of Stars from the word Compostela. As pilgrims made their way under the stars of the Milky Way lighting the sky and guiding their way. For centuries pilgrims have ventured in nature away from their homelands to cross countries and oceans to experience their connection with God’s Divine Universe. I am sure the planets and stars were reassuring friends along their journey lighting the way and adding to their experience.
