You won’t always feel like talking to fellow pilgrims – and indeed, some of the most deeply enjoyable moments can be those spent alone in the countryside, accompanied by nothing more than the hypnotic clump of your footsteps.
There is, however, an amazing camaraderie on the route.
The people you meet, and the stories you share, are all part of the atmosphere – and something pilgrims tend to remember far more vividly than the landscapes. Perhaps due to the nature of the route, or the time on their hands, conversations are amazingly open, and can continue for days.
