Spend 4 Minutes on the Camino Frances

What is it like to walk from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela?

I just found a video that sums it up and edits it down to just 4 minutes. It looks like they walked about the same time last year that we did, and so everything here is so familiar I feel like they were taping my trip, from the vast green fields of Rioja to the rugged, rainy hills of Galicia.

I remember that the outdoor food truck/rest area where the older couple are dancing is just before Los Arcos, and the black-eyed sheep, and you walk under the arches of the ruined abbey just before Castrojeriz. I know the city walls of Burgos, the cathedral of Leon, and the Gaudi Castle in Astorga.

So pause your day, sit back, and imagine yourself outside, walking across an entire country with people from around the world.
