Neelam and I and our daughter Alya had a spectacular Camino experience starting in Ponferrada. I wanted to thank you for assisting in many ways in making it a memorable experience. We made many new friends from Canada and Australia and the USA; tears were even shed as we parted in Santiago. Thanks also for the surprise birthday celebration that FrescoTours made available; my 65th birthday coincided when we reached Santiago so it was a special day for me. The hotels and meals along the way were excellent. The walk itself was challenging but the months of preparation with backpacks before the Camino were essential. The pilgrim’s mass last Monday in Santiago was also (by divine intervention!) a feast day so we were able to attend the noon service with the swinging of the Botafumeiro incense ritual that was extremely moving. Overall it was a life-changing and life-motivating several weeks in Spain!
