  1. Many thanks, David, for the very successful organisation of our beautiful pilgrimage from Bristol to Arundel. I enjoyed our pilgrimage very much – just like my 4 previous ones. I didn’t have to worry about where to go and sleep and what to eat. Everything was very well organised. Many thanks also to the support team. Every day was different and uniquely beautiful. Like a ruminant, I still digest my experiences to enjoy them again. There was enough room for pause and self-reflection. Many thanks to all participants for everything I was able to experience with you. I would like to participate again next year.

  2. Norbert, Thanks for your kind comments shared with our volunteer team. You are always very welcome and we look forward to our walking together next time.
