Dreaming Santiago

perspectives on a Pilgrimage

Have we all gone totally deranged ? Do we require pilgrimages to get away from our luxurious and highly arranged lives ? Why do people voluntarily submit to a regime of walking endless stretches, day after day, week after week only to end up in one of the back-to-basic pilgrim's hostels on a nightly basis ?
