Camino galleries now online

Images from my recent weeks walking the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela have now been added to the Visited Planet database. All are now available through the Spain page (there are numerous galleries here numbering days 3-14. Days 1-2 were in France and available through this page).

I’ve been making regular posts to Facebook of some of my favourite images and reflections of the journey. If you’ve missed those please go to https://www.facebook.com/VisitedPlanetphotojournalism and look for the hashtag #camino on all the posts (or click on photos and you’ll see all images I’ve uploaded recently, many of which are from the camino).

However here are some of these posted below.

“This hill, though high, I covet to ascend; The difficulty will not me offend. For I perceive the way to life lies here. Come, pluck up, heart; let's neither faint nor fear. Better, though difficult, the right way to go, Than wrong, though easy, where the end is woe.” ― John Bunyan, The Pilgrim's Progress

Photo gallery: Food from around the world

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience,” said James Beard
James Beard, a pioneer foodie in the USA once named the “dean of American cookery”. It’s certainly been my common experience journeying from places as different as Vietnam, India, Mongolia, Italy, Mali and Morocco.

There is no simpler, greater pleasure than sharing a meal with people abroad and sharing in that common need and bond over the enjoyment of eating.

Here’s some pictures detailing those experiences.
