There are many routes, motivations and ways to do the Camino de Santiago, and if you have ever made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela you will have seen very curious cases like the ones we are going to see in this post. In the last few days, pilgrims have been seen along the French Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage with their donkey. A very singular company that is more common than you might think on the road to Compostela.
Vincent and his donkey Ralph
From France comes this story that in recent days we have been able to see in the region of El Bierzo. On the 6th of August these two very singular pilgrims left from the neighbouring country, whose story is one of affection and companionship, because as Vicent declares, “I am very proud of them.Ralph is a good friend, very important to me.”.
Vicent doesn’t know exactly what day they will arrive in Santiago de Compostela, and it probably doesn’t matter much, because this singular couple seems to live on pilgrimage.. Ralph is his faithful companion, and he helps his friend by carrying everything he needs to live in constant pilgrimage. In fact, as Vicent,
“once we reach Compostela we will leave for Jerusalem.”.
This couple, who were accompanied by a third Pilgrim MTA, have left in recent weeks a curious and amusing picture in the pilgrims’ hostel of San Nicolas de Flue. This will be repeated in the towns through which they will pass by means of the French Camino de Santiago. In fact, we will be able to follow them in their adventure thanks to the account of Instagram in which they show the world Ralph’s paths through France, Spain and Portugal. We will be watching them on their next journey to the Holy Land.
