  • For over a thousand years, pilgrims have been making their way on foot

  • to the Spanish city of Santiago De Compostela,

  • the resting place of the remains of Saint James.

  • about 2.5 million people a year visit Santiago,

  • over 200,000 of them walking the Camino, a pilgrimage across France

  • and Spain. Traditionally, the Camino De Santiago

  • should begin from the front door of your home. If you happened to live 50 kilometres away from the Cathedral,

  • that was all you walked. If you live in Nottingham, like me,

  • walking from your doorstep would take an inordinate amount of time.

  • Infact, plenty of people in Europe

  • do begin from their homes, a few weeks at a time

  • over a number of years.

  • So where did I begin my Camino?

  • In 2013, I walked 116 kilometres from Sarria to Santiago in five days.

  • This easter,

  • my challenge was to walk 90 kilometres in four days

  • across hills, mountains and rivers

  • from Santiago to Finesterra, the end of the world.

  • So it's day one, usually we'd walk about

  • 20 kilometres in one day but since we arrived in Santiago

  • at midday we're only walking ten kilometres.

  • Pilgrims from every background are

  • today drawn to the Camino from all over the world.

  • We're from Germany.

  • We're from Ireland.

  • I'm from the United States, but I live here in Santiago now.

  • The language in the way is English because it's easy for

  • different cultures, Korean people, Catalan people,

  • Germany,

  • Namibia. All the people possibly speak

  • in English and this is a good experience to

  • all the people, because we have many languages,

  • but we are only one people.

  • What is common to them all, is that they have left behind

  • all that is familiar to them, in order to wake each day to a new

  • stretch of road. No two pilgrims are likely to experience

  • or to understand the Camino in exactly the same way.

  • Some will have walked 100 kilometres some 500,

  • some more than a thousand! Why do they do it?

  • This documentary seeks to answer that very question.

  • When you see a town with people around a table with dinner,

  • they are very open to share

  • the reasons, why they do the Camino.

  • I was fed up with my life and then

  • I really wanted to go out my comfort zone. I just wanted to get some confidence

  • because I came here by myself.

  • I want to concur

  • one big thing in my life.

  • It is essential to travel as light as possible

  • as everything you need is to be carried on your back whilst walking roughly

  • 20 kilometres each day. As a filmmaker,

  • I had an excessive amount of equipment.

  • *Water*

  • By the 12th and 13th centuries, half a million christian pilgrims made

  • their way to an across northern Spain

  • and back each year. They did this to be granted a

  • miracle by Saint James and to transform their lives in some way.

  • When they returned, they would be treated as local celebrities

  • within their community.

  • Yellow arrows, painted sprayed or carved

  • guide the pilgrim on their journey, but why is the scallop shell the emblem of

  • the Camino?

  • Why is it depicted on each and every signpost?

  • One story relates to a troubled man being rescued from the sea by Saint

  • James.

  • When the drowning man was lifted from the fury of the waves,

  • Scallop shells clung to his clothing. This shell became an emblem for

  • Saint James and also the trials of being a pilgrim.

  • *Shower*

  • *Birdsong*

  • Accommodation tends to be scattered

  • around the 15 to 20 kilometre marks so it is worth finding out where each Albergue or

  • or Refugio is before you start your trip. Refugio's or Albergue's come in all

  • shapes and sizes.

  • Most hostels are made up of mixed dormitories with simple bunkbeds.

  • Your pilgrim's passport is what gets you into a Refugio.

  • This passport has spaces for stamps obtained from different establishments

  • during the day.

  • These stamps work is proof that you have walked a certain distance.

  • Hand in the passport at the end of your journey if you have walked over 100 kilometres

  • to receive a certificate.

  • I keep in touch with two of the ladies I met,

  • one I'm going to visit this year in Frankfurt and

  • we are pen pals. I have an Austrian lady who is older and we're

  • pen pals, I'll send her postcards and Christmas letters and she'll do the same.

  • I've met more than 10.

  • We met together in Santiago which is the destination of this journey.

  • We celebrated together, it was quite the

  • biggest interest, for me.

  • The Way is an inspirational film about Tom,

  • a man who decides to walk the Camino after collecting the remains of his adult

  • son,

  • killed in a Pyrenees storm whilst walking the Camino. What Tom doesn't

  • plan on,

  • is the profound impact the journey will have on his life!

  • In the film, Tom and his newfound friends find it impossible to stop

  • walking after reaching Santiago. As I walked the last 100 kilometres in 2013

  • from Sarria to Santiago,

  • it only seemed right that formy second pilgrimage,

  • I continue my journey from Santiago

  • to what pagans believed to be the end of the world.

  • I am in love with the sea.

  • We started in Porto at the sea, we wanted to finish it.

  • I thought that I could find the answers that I wanted to find

  • when I got to Santiago

  • but I couldn't, so I just decided to go further to Finesterra to

  • get my answers and I needed some time to think about

  • myself.

  • It's two thirds of the end and the fact that it was out to the sea.

  • There is a well known saying that the Camino begins when you reach the end.

  • The sense of achievement that you get from competing such a journey is,

  • it's, indescribable!

  • Life is a journey in itself and

  • I aim to walk my life's journey with the same enthusiastic and

  • gutsy determination as I walked the Camino.

  • Why did I walk the Camino? Well,

  • for that very reason.

  • *Honk*

  • Subtitles by Edward Fleming.
