Por Que Peregrino? – Camino Stories
There’s nothing more I enjoy than reading stories from peregrinos on arriving home. Some have found it life-changing while others not so. I have introduced some of that into this site with “Camino Through My Eyes”. However, three guys have put together a great website with many different and varying stories. Nilanj Desai, David Franz and Greg Scheaffer created www.porqueperegrino.com following their Camino in 2014.
Below they give their reasons for creating the website:
We started this website because we noticed that nearly all of our fellow walkers had very interesting reasons for hiking the Camino. We all had remarkable, even profound experiences, yet we didn’t see anything that really captured these amazing, vivid stories. Most online message boards or Facebook groups are great about telling you how heavy your backpack should be, what to use to protect against bedbugs, or how to prevent blisters. But I found nothing truly inspiring, that might really excite a prospective pilgrim about the journey, or that might cause someone to go who might never otherwise have considered it. Nothing to capture how much of a life-affirming adventure this has been for hundreds of thousands of peregrinos.
I will place this in my Camino Links page, however, I’d encourage you to check out the site.
