Katja Bourova promenerade de dryga 80 milen från Frankrike till Santiago de Compostela. Fotografen hängde på från Villafranca till slutstationen.

This young girl

 was walking the pilgrim trail towards Santiago de Compostela in Spain. She is Peruvian and 87 years has passed since she was born.  We met her, half running and in good spirits with her daughter and grand-daughter some 110 kilometers before Santiago.  I´d like to be in that shape when I reach that age.

The end of the world

Those who have wandered the 800 kilometers from France to Santiago de Compostela can keep on walking a few days extra, but no more than 100km.

This is where the world ends. Finito Finisterre!


You meet a lot of interesting people along the Camino de Santiago.

This 87-year-old Peruvian lady is walking “El Camino” with her daughter and granddaughter. At this place, close to Sarria in Galicia, they still have more than 100 km to do!

The picture was taken the 11 of September. Me and Katja arrived to Santiago last night after an exhausting final distance of 36 km.


 Behind them Navarra, La Rioja, Castilla and Leon.

On the other side of that mountain there are still some 150 adventurous kilometers through the beautifully green Galicia to reach the final goal Santiago de CompostelaPicture taken the 8 of September
