One does not tend to think of pilgrimages to Santiago de
Compostela as "family travel", especially with a young child, but it was
an extraordinary way to experience it together that I can highly
recommend. Seeing things through a child's eyes opened my heart in ways
that I would have missed if we did it alone.

We too, feel like
pilgrims in our own way, as a family can not take a world touring
journey like ours without great dedication and trust or without
learning more about ones soul.
The energy is very special in
Santiago de Compostela, perhaps because so many have been so happy and
grateful when they arrived.We felt a wonderful mix of blissful joy,
gratitude and sacredness.
Internationally bestselling author Paul Coehlo said:
turning point was my pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. It was then
that I, who had dedicated most of my life to penetrate the 'secrets' of
the universe, realized that there are no secrets. Life is and will
always be a mystery. Life is a constant miracle, and this miracle
manifests itself in encounters with other people. After the pilgrimage,
I simplified my spiritual search a lot, and instead of searching for
answers, I started to understand that life itself is an answer."
We will always cherish our family pilgrimage to Santiago and
Galicia...beautiful Celtic Spain. Mozart was 7 & quickly drew the
picture of the little pilgrim on a napkin when we were not looking,
while waiting for a meal. She is dressed in the brown cape and hat that
is the traditional dress of a pilgrim from the middle ages to
experience what that might have been like.
