This guidebook describes the Camino del Norte and Camino Primitivo pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain. The 820km Camino del Norte follows the coast from Irún, on the French border, through Bilbao and takes about 5 weeks to complete. The 355km Camino Primitivo splits off from the Camino del Norte near Villaviciosa and passes through Oviedo and Lugo en route to Compostela. It takes roughly 2 weeks to walk. This book also includes an overview of a continuation route from Santiago to Finisterre on the coast. Physically demanding, but not difficult, the caminos are best walked from late spring to autumn. The guidebook is broken into stages of between 15 and 35km, most of which end in a town or village with a pilgrim albergue. There is indispensable information on facilities, food and lodging, 1:100,000 scale maps of the route and town maps for key locations. With notes on preparation and planning, travel and equipment, a list of useful sources of information, and a glossary, the book provides all you need to know to walk the camino. Santiago de Compostela, whose cathedral houses the relics of St James, was one of three major centres of Catholic pilgrimage in the Middle Ages. In modern times the Caminos de Santiago have seen a resurgence in popularity, drawing walkers for all sorts of reasons. Passing through the Spanish regions of the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias, and Galicia, the northern caminos are popular enough to offer sufficient facilities, clear routes, and a community of pilgrims, without suffering the overcrowding of the Camino Frances.

Mark Petersen has learned philanthropy in the process of leading a private grantmaking foundation. It has been a pilgrimage with mountaintops and valleys, high-impact grants and dead-end disasters. He parallels a personal account of a physical pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago alongside his philanthropic journey to create a sense of momentum and intentional movement toward a shared destination. Each of the thirty-five chapters leads with a short journal entry from the author's month-long pilgrimage along the Camino del Norte and Camino Primitivo in Spain. Mark uses compelling stories to vulnerably shares fifteen years' worth of failures as well as successes in his journey of philanthropy. Along this journey he developed practical steps for reviewing grant applications and achieving goals for philanthropy. He advances the values of transparency, mutuality, and collaborating with others to achieve common goals. The vision of philanthropy espoused not only includes charitable impact but suggests the giver can be transformed in the process. The book offers a window into how people of faith struggle with giving, humanizes the mystique of a philanthropist, and provides grantmakers with tangible tools in their efforts to be both shrewd and faithful.

What happens when UNESCO heritage conventions are ratified by a state? How do UNESCO’s global efforts interact with preexisting local, regional and state efforts to conserve or promote culture? What new institutions emerge to address the mandate? The contributors to this volume focus on the work of translation and interpretation that ensues once heritage conventions are ratified and implemented. With seventeen case studies from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and China, the volume provides comparative evidence for the divergent heritage regimes generated in states that differ in history and political organization. The cases illustrate how UNESCO’s aspiration to honor and celebrate cultural diversity diversifies itself. The very effort to adopt a global heritage regime forces myriad adaptations to particular state and interstate modalities of building and managing heritage.

Looking at medieval maps of the traditional pilgrim routes to the Spanish cathedral city of Santiago de Compostela, it is noticeable that there are no roads from Scotland. Noticeable at least to the Scots author of this book. Patrick Farnon, who splits his time between Scotland, the Netherlands and Spain, says: "I thought it might be a good idea to invent such a route. Of the various well-trodden roads to Santiago we have the French way (El Camino Frances), the Fisterra Way (El Camino de Fisterra), the English Way (El Camino Ingles), the Silver Way (La Via de La Plata from Seville), the Northern Way (El Camino del Norte, along the Cantabrian and Basque coasts) and the Primitive Way (El Camino Primitivo, from Oviedo). There's also a Portuguese Way. So why not a Scots Way to Santiago?" The situation now stands corrected. In this amusing record of a personal odyssey across the shoulder of Spain looking for the links between the Scots and the Spanish, Farnon mixes the Medieval with the Modern and discovers all sorts of marvels and wonders as well as a few charlatans. In this account he covers the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela and way back via the Camino de Fisterra and the Camino del Norte, a trip of nearly two thousand kilometres. He also finds more than a few ancient links, which means there is at last a Scots Way to Santiago de Compostela, even if it is a very singular one.

"If you know how much I love you, you'd cry of joy."Exactly ten years ago, on a summer day, I was walking through the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache from altitude sickness, along the muddy trails, chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember one day I took off in a car and sped without any direction, suddenly surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains, reflected by the glow of sunset. It was ten years ago that I was touched to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists, who walked hundreds and thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I am walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay shoes and it has been over 30 days so far."We have to be brave to say hello and also to say goodbye."This is one of the things that I learned from Camino de Santiago: because we were heading to the same destination, we could become friends in the same boat. But as time went, we slowly recognized that one day we should say goodbye and go our own way after the pilgrimage. It was difficult to say goodbye to really good friends.This is a travel essay and photo gallery traveled through French way (Camino Francés) of camino de santiago, also in the names of Peregrinatio Compostellana, Pilgrimage of Compostela, O Camiño de Santiago leading from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.
