Symbols and Walking
Why might one choose to walk hundreds of miles?
The Camino de Santiago in Spain (and neighboring countries) is a pilgrimage route (a set of them, really) that many people travel to Europe to walk. Below is an introduction via Google Arts & Culture.
As you watch it, look for what might be the symbols of the Camino.
What symbols did you notice? How would you connect what you noticed to the Camino?
If you were to create a path in your part of the world for people to walk, where would they start, what would they visit along the way, and where would they finish? What symbol or symbols might you choose for the path?
Have you ever tried walking a long way? Why did you do it, or try to do it, if so?
