2006 Santiago de Compostela


Length: 1 month

Camino de Santiago

Videos from this trip

During the winter 2005 my brother Damian and me decided to walk as pilgrims to a place in Spain called Santiago de Compostela. We were planing to spend approximately one month walking about 650km (at the end it was about 750km however). We flew from Bratislava airport on the 22th of June and returning back from Santiago we took a flight on the 23th of July. Including the flying the journey was about 5700km long (luckily we have airplanes, right?). The real walking started at Logroňo, from where we followed the Camino Frances (or Camino Real). Our first plan was just to go to Santiago, but we changed it as we walked, so after reaching Santiago, we spent there one day and continued to a place called Fisterra which means "The-End-Of-The-World" ... actually it lies on the shores of Atlantic Ocean about 100km from Santiago and really, being there feels like being on the actual end of the world. Especially in the evening when the sun sets into the ocean.

In total we walked about 750km. Daily we made between 18 and 40km, usually in the morning, because the sun in the afternoon is really deadly. In order to depend the less possible on money, we carried most of the food in our backpacks and so we walked most of the time with 20kg backpacks including water. Eventually we found the weight quite all right for walking, although most pilgrims would walk with far less.

Our journey had, however one other dimension ... deeper than the "hiking" one. It was a great opportunity to meet friendly people from all around the world, that were walking the same "Camino" as we did. An opportunity to stop and think about things we simply ignore in our daily lives, but that are so important ... for us, it was truly a life-changing experience.

Buen Camino!
Dominik and Damián Ramík
