It’s not easy for me to express how much I’ve learned on my trips to Santiago.
The first time I’ve walked the Camino the experience was something I was totally unprepared for. Ever since then, all of the times have been different, but as enriching as the first. I’ve walked the Camino once with two close friends, once by myself, and once with my mother.
Now, at last, with in equal parts shame and longing, I can share the short film I’ve made about that one time I started it alone.
You’ll realize I’m not much of a pilgrim. Let’s just say I’m not made of strong materials. Having said that, the friendship and heart of the pilgrims I was lucky to have shared the road with made it all worth it.
This short is dedicated to my friends from the Camino. I hope you like it. And thank you. Thank you very much.
