The American Pilgrims on the Camino Chapter discusses new topics every month including such topics as: Camino 101, volunteering on the Camino, the Portuguese Way, and other great Camino experiences. The local chapter focuses on keeping its members connected to the Camino and introducing new people to the phenomenon. This is accomplished by hosting social events, walks, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims. Check the notes below for this month's presentation content.


    VIA PODIENSIS FROM LE PUY-EN-VELAY---- Rick and Danielle Bussone walk the Way of St James along the GR65 leaving from Noter-Dame du Puy. Besides many dramatic photos of the mystical Central Massif of France, Danielle was strict about having only vegetarian dishes which she beautifully documented as part of her plant-based pilgrimage.
