1000 Km walking meditation to Santiago de Compostela using the "Via de la Plata" route.
One year ago a good Italian friend told me "Hey, I'm going to walk to Santiago de Compostela!". "Really" I said. "Awesome! I would love to do it too". I immediately reminded the book from Paulo Coelho, "El peregrino de Compostela" ("The Pilgrimage" in English) that I had read many years before. I actually don't remember anything about the book except for a thought that came to my mind... "Wow, does this really exist? I would love to do a pilgrimage trip like this".

It's unbelievable all the things that you can see just by walking 39 days (38 days + 1 day off) from Sevilla to Santiago de Compostela, so I wrote this post to be able to remind me at least of some of those things. Below is the exact itinerary that I followed (not necessarily as indicated in the guide books).

"Living with the Himalayan Masters" reminded me of Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. It is also the autobiography of a great Indian yogi, Swami Rama of the Himalayas, but written in a very different style. Although Swami Rama was considered a great yogi from early childhood he writes in a very humble way. Whenever he tells a story he shows how immature, egotistic or arrogant he was and how his master, with a very loving touch, helped him to overcome his weaknesses.
