Camino de Santiago

There is one other passenger remaining in the arrivals lounge. Pierre is a quintessential Swiss man, polite, charming and like me, missing his luggage. We are both planning on starting the Camino de Santiago in the morning, the pilgrimage over the Pyrenees into Spain and across the country to Santiago de Compostela. There are multiple Camino routes leading to Santiago but the one we are about to begin is the Camino Frances, also called the French Way, which is 780km with an optional 90km to Finisterre on the coast where you plunge into the ocean to cleanse your soul.
