    I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and was happy to be in the company of other interested possible pilgrims. She made it seem very doable!

    I was expecting some insight and personal experience. What it seemed to be was a project list. Power Point bullet points. No pictures until the end.

      I was very pleased with her discussion. I think a journey like this one with a spiritual focus might be difficult to share fully with a group of strangers. Perhaps you could invite our speaker back with a smaller group and ask if she felt comfortable talking about that aspect of her trip-- maybe even bring appetizers or wine to share. Be aware that this is a large group-- if she had talked from a spiritual perspective there would probably be those who complained that they felt they were in church.

    Planning a trip to Catalonia and SW France for the next year but finishing a project and was unable to make the presentation. Would like to have heard the tips on traveling the area. Here's a restaurant link that's good, found a few days ago... http://www.happycow.net/europe/spain/barcelona/

    Mike was looking for her personal experience on this adventure. I, too, was hoping to hear her explain the meaningful side for her. I wanted to know the difficulty of walking the trails and the points of interest.

    I am considering this hike on the Camino Trail sometime next year and would have loved to hear her tell about the adventures. Hope I can hear her sometime in the future.
