El Camino de Santiago: A Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela

By Al P. Manlangit     Finally, after years of procrastinating, I found myself on the way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, biking the whole 750km. route from Pamplona close to the the French border. With a backpack filled with some clothes, a camera, some Granola bars and a bottle of water, I pedaled away on a bright morning along the highway headed west.   Like millions of pilgrims dating back to 800AD, I would be...
