Bastien from Hamburg


Bastien, from Hamburg, came by yesterday and eventually had lunch with us. He was walking his sixth Camino having set out from Hamburg in January seven months earlier.

He had had a difficult childhood. But while walking the Camino had started reading the Bible – initially to show Christians he met on the Way how wrong they were. But in fact as a result he had been converted to Christianity himself. He was now wondering what next to do in his life, being determined not to let his past define who he was.

Ultreia, Bastien

Stefanie from Cologne

Stefanie stopped by a few days ago for her lunch. She is a retired opera singer.

This was the first day of her pilgrimage this year and she did not want to walk long distances each day. So we discussed the best plan for her to adopt.

Bon Camino, Stefanie
