Show Notes

29-Year-old Spanish Resident, Carlota Valenzuela, is currently walking a year-long,  6,000 plus km pilgrimage from Finisterre to Jerusalem.  During this discussion, I caught up with Carlota as she was walking the Camino Norte backward heading out of the Galician province. I am so intrigued by her mission, what drove her to do this pilgrimage, that she's walking a Camino in the opposite direction, and walking solo for over 6000km. She plans to arrive in Jerusalem this Christmas. We will be following and supporting her journey closely. More interviews to come! Please share this interview with your friends and follow Carlota on her social media pages. Buen Camino!
