I did my Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage in 2004. To be authentic, I walked the whole French Way; 34 days, 18 kg of gear, 764 km on foot. I lost 8 kg in weight!
I had read a lot about the Camino being a spiritual experience, and I wanted to try and capture on film my own reactions as I walked the way.
I find watching the film a little difficult, I feel a little embarrassed at just how earnest and honest I was trying to be. But the reaction from viewers has been amazing. Still, all these years later, people contact me thanking me for documenting my journey.
I have a little facebook page for the film. Despite not really doing anything with this page, it just keeps getting bigger and bigger, reaching close to 1,000 people.
So I’ve decided to release the whole film, in it’s entirety on youtube. I will have ads running in the video and encourage you to explore these ads, any income for a independent filmmaker is handy, and will help me continue my current journey of trying to film the whole world.
Feel free to comment and like the video. I’m always happy to hear how my little film helped encourage people to do the Camino themselves. It is an amazing journey, a one of a kind experience. Enjoy!
