Guest Speakers for August 9, 2016 Meeting – Ken and Vera Witt of Walking the Camino De Santiago

el-camino-de-santiago1The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will welcome Ken and Vera Witt as our guest speakers for the Tuesday, August 9, 2016 club meeting.  Ken and Vera will talk about their journey on El Camino de Santiago.

Spilling over the Pyrenees from France into Spain, the network of trails that make up the Route of St. James—or El Camino de Santiago—converges at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. For more than a thousand years, pilgrims have trekked over the high plains of Castilla and the hills of Galicia, some to honor the Apostle James; others in the midst of their own spiritual journey. The route has given rise to historic and religious sites that represent centuries of European architecture at its best. Set out from Pamplona to discover the longest pilgrimage route in Europe, experiencing the most picturesque and poignant sections of this UNESCO World Heritage site on foot.
