In 1990 I visited Santiago de Compostela as a tourist and saw some pilgrims finishing the Camino. I returned in 2016 as a pilgrim, walking from my home in Weybridge, UK along the Camino Frances. The experience was so overwhelming that I returned in 2017 to walk along the Via Podiensis from Le-Puy-en-Velay to Pamplona. In many ways, this was even better.
