“To people the world over, pilgrimage is a sacred exercise, an act of devotion… Always, it is a journey of risk and renewal.  For a journey without challenge has no meaning; one without purpose has no soul… What legendary travelers have taught us since Pausanius and Marco Polo is that the art of travel is the art of seeing what is sacred.   Pilgrimage is the kind of journey that marks just this move from mindless to mindful, soulless to soulful travel.”  Taken from ‘The Art of Pilgrimage’ by Phil Cousineau.
