This year, WOMEX delegates had the one-off opportunity to win a free registration by making a pilgrimage to WOMEX.
One brave couple from Canada accepted the challenge and chose to walk all the way from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela through Galicia along the Camino Inglès.
WOMEX delegate Christine Lavoie and her husband left Ferrol on October 9, planning to arrive in Santiago on October 15 just to leave the city behind again for an additional 90 kilometres from Santiago de Compostela to Fisterra, covering a total of 215 kilometers!
We wish them a safe and joyful journey and hope to see them in good spirits at the WOMEX Opening ceremony on October 22! We are not sure if they'll be able to dance to the music though...
