    Hi

    I am interested in finding out more about the pilgrim’s walk to Subiaco.

    Can you let me know the costs and whether there is still places available. I would prefer to stay in the accomodation that all the 30 people will be staying at.

    Regards
    Ida

    I am a pilgrim of the way of St James and I simply wish to express my enormous delight at reading of the preparations for the Camino of Dom Salvado. All pilgrimages are fragments of the same journey, so I wish you all a great Camino and hope that many others follow you.

    Recently I completed my second pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago – this second journey was a longer undertaking into which I bicycled 9000KM from Singapore to Cape Finisterre, via Santiago. Presenting my two metre long credential, pilgrims passport to be stamped, along the way raised some eyebrows in far flung places. During the course of my 9 months tour I hatched a similar idea that Australia should have its own route(S) dedicated towards the Way of St James, as it should be in the spirit of the historical pilgrim to ideally make his or her journey from ones own home / home country. Of course this presents a big problem when one is at a great distance from Santiago de Compostela and in the modern world where the individual has little time nor money to take up such a journey. Nonetheless small journeys can be made from ones home and along a route which can be dedicated for spiritual, meditative and or leisurely practices – but associated to the Way of St James.

    Back from my recent pilgrimage I am most interested into making a similar journey in my own country which resinates with spirit of the camino. I can only hope that the Dom Salvado Camino and my dreams of an Australian network of dedicated camino(S) reaching towards Santiago de Compostela can be realised by many. A dedicated pathway already exits in Brazil, and en route I met a Sth African who is working on similar concepts for a walking / cycling route in his own country.

    One such route could begin with the Dom Salvado Camino. I would hope that it can be made by many and its establishment on similar models to the existing municipal run and association of St James managed facilities for the pilgrim.
