Anyone going to GLOW Conference in Nantes?


Recommended Posts

I won't be applying but I am right there with you on walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostela - I've been mildly obsessed with Galicia (Galiza, even) since high school and would love a good reason to go there at some point.

Some years ago I took a week and visited (by bus and train) some highlights of the Camino - Pamplona, Burgos, Leon, and Santiago itself. I actually arrived and heard Mass at the cathedral on St. James' Saint day, on a Sunday, which apparently if I were an actual pilgrim (or Catholic at all) would have earned me plenary absolution. I've wanted to go back and do the route for real ever since.

But anyway, in Santiago I got a very nice heavy hardbound unabridged Spanish-Galician dictionary. I horsed that thing across Spain, France, and Italy for three more weeks. It was my only souvenir from that whole trip. (Maybe I should have mentioned THAT in my SoP.)
