The trip was a real spiritual journey I found. Although we did a lot of travelling, I found it very touching to walk on the same paths and stay in the same places where our holy father St. Dominic has been 800 years ago.
Especially Caleruega was very special in eyes. Here, the birthplace of St. Dominic, he has grown up, and learned to pray and grew in love of God. Then after his studies for the priesthood he lived for quite a long time a relatively sheltered and contemplative live as a Canon in the cathedral of Osma, which we visited. It was only then, after growing in knowledge and love of God through contemplation that he embarked on the preaching mission as he discovered the need for this on a mission with his bishop which guided them through the south of France.
