About this Journey

The historic pilgrimage route of Camino de Santiago dates back to medieval times, drawing images of pious 10th century Europeans trudging the uneven roads of modern-day Spain to reach the site of Saint James the Great.

Today, the route remains as do the pilgrims, each making the trek in their own way – some do it solo on foot, some astride a bicycle, while others make the pursuit amidst a group of friends.

As Pope Benedict XVI said, “It is a way sown with so many demonstrations of fervor, repentance, hospitality, art and culture which speak to us eloquently of the spiritual roots of the Old Continent.”  

***Led by WildChina founder, Mei Zhang
