Wow! What a week it was, our visit to Portugal and Spain.
There are many people for us to thank: Ineke Brinkman of Brinkman Travel in St. Catharines, Notre Dame College School for organizing this pilgrimage/adventure as a way of commemorating its 40th annual pilgrimage last October, teachers Carol Berkhout and Robin Ellis, the ND students and the adults – a great group of 27 in total – with whom we shared the joy, excitement and various discoveries in our travels both in northern Portugal and of course Spain.
Personally, as the experience of a lifetime, this is forever to be remembered: ‘El Camino Es La Meta’ – The Journey Is The Reward.
