The Pilgrim's Way: The Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
I read that the pilgrimage used to be a religious journey, but now it is known more for spiritual purposes. With all this on mind and still in search for a SIP topic, it all came together; I came to the conclusion that the pilgrimage would be a perfect project for me to write about and to experience, allowing me to sort things out. Without a doubt, the pilgrimage had a huge impact on me and it helped me see things in a new way. Dr. Schmeichel, my SIP advisor, once asked me during a meeting, "Tell my why you did this project." I think I have answered this question in this brief introduction. But only after this meeting did I come up with one last reason: to inform people about this wonderful experience. This SIP will provide information about the pilgrimage itself, the beliefs behind it, the history of St James, and as well as my own personal experience as I become a part of history.
