If you feel as nostalgic as me when leafing this book you will have to go on the Camino.
Nevertheless, the text aren't so attractive. If the first one is a pilgrim from Le Puy en Velay to Conques testimony ! the others are mainly cultural and historical description.
It also like two different books have been join together.
Via turonensis (Paris-Pyrénées), via lemovicensis (Vézelay-Pyrénées), via podiensis (Le Puy-Pyrénées), via tolosana (Arles-somport), chemin aragonais (somport-Puente la Reina), chemin navarais (Pyrénées-Puente la Reina), camino francés (Puente la Reina-Santiago de Compostella), les chemins de Saint Jacques en Bretagne et le camino primitivo.
