“However sceptical [sic] one may be about the basis of the pilgrimage and the legends surrounding it, one cannot help being affected by it. Maybe it’s the simplicity of the life and the closeness to nature that makes one conscious of deeper realities and I hope, as a result, I have learned to be a better person, or at least I will try to be.”
– an English pilgrim, 1998
