Mission Accomplished!

Peter reached Santiago de Compostela yesterday, after walking 900 km.  He enjoyed a night in a hostel (a room to himself, with en suite!), today he attended the Pilgrims’ Mass in the Cathedral.  He flies back to the UK tomorrow morning, and we’re all very excited to welcome him home!

Your generous donations are very much appreciated, it’s not too late to add your contribution (links on the right of this page).

Peter will write a message and upload some photos at the weekend, so check back soon.

About petercamino

Hello, I plan to walk the Camino de Santiago in memory of my friend, Tony Embrey, who sadly passed away on March 16th 2010. Tony and I had been friends for many years and prior to his death in the Severn Hospice I agreed with him that I would do this walk to raise money for the hospice. Having suffered a heart attack when I initially attempted this walk in September 2007, and subsequently having a quadruple heart bypass, I also wish to support The British Heart Foundation. The Camino de Santiago (The Way of St James) is a pilgrimage walk to the city of Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain. I have already completed the walk once, in 2008, when I started at St Jean Pied de Port on the French side of the Pyrenees, and finished 500 miles later, in Santigao De Compostela. This year I am setting out from Argagnon in south-west France on 25th March and hope to arrive in Santiago, 600 miles away, in early to mid May, Any support you can give to these worthy causes will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Peter Booth

    I have eaten out tonight with friends and went to The Red Lion,Myddle for a night cap.Sheila,landlady, handed me some money from a gentleman that lived in the village over 14 years ago and had called in to his old local,he didn’t know Tony or Pete but read the poster that was displayed regarding Pete’s pilgrimage.I found this gesture so heart warming realising that although times maybe hard we Brits can still have compassion.Safe trip home Pete x
