Sacred Journeys

Sometimes one of the sister blogs points to the other.

So I would like to point to Pilgrimage and Place for the documentary series from Bruce Feiler on Sacred Journeys.

in Lourdes,
on the Shikoku,
in Jerusalem,
in Mecca,
on the Kumbh Mela
and Osun Osogbo in Central Africa.

Both Pilgrimage and Place as The Pilgrims Gaze are blogs by me.

Pilgrimage and place has no unique focus on film, documentary and youtube movies but also looks at more background subjects regarding pilgrimage and place. So also expect more stuff on spirituality, on poetry, on pilgrimage to a bench or a grave....

Both have the possibility to leave your email so you'll get an update as soon as new items are added.

Perhaps not an official camino, this fishermens trail in the south of Portugal.
But a very enjoyable and scenic route to walk.

"Rota Vicentina is a long distance path along the Sw coast of Portugal, between the city of Santiago do Cacém and the Cape of St. Vincent, totalling 350 km to walk along one of the most beautiful and best preserved coast lines of southern Europe."

Reason and change

Nick Porter walked a camino and talked to several pilgrims from all over,
why are you walking?
Nice remarks on the ever changing landscapes,
even within the same day walks.


Historical Camino de Santiago

On the Filmoteca Espanola Tania Perez from the American Pilgrims on the Camino spotted a documentary on the Camino de Santiago.

Black and white

Visit several places starting in Roncesvalles,
see the empty roads...

Use the script to access specific places directly.

Couldn't find statistics from 1955 that quick, but graph below shows some numbers for earlier 1970-ties.
Yes, it must have been different compared to today.
