The 100 km stroll

Four guys do the Camino de Santiago

Sometimes when you're studying abroad, you just do some random stuff. Actually, most of the time you do some random stuff, but sometimes you do some really random stuff. Such as decide to do part of El Camino de Santiago, a network of various pilgrimage paths throughout eastern Europe that all lead to the Cathedral of St. James in northeastern Spain. Of course we don't exactly have time to walk from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela (~ a lot of km), but with a 4 day weekend, we could do the 100 km from Madrid to Segovia. So why not. Granted, we were 4 dudes so we just messed around the whole time.... But it was definitely a ball. So I hope you enjoy this extremely serious video about our little excursion.

What I didn't know

I imagine I haven't gone abroad and see what I didn't expect knowing what I all know now. It really turns into a cliche fest...

<p>Hey all you humans, my name&#39;s Ben, and I just happen to be living in Madrid, Spain! I&#39;ll be here total for 6 months (I came early for an internship), and I&#39;ll be sharing my explorations, the city, travels, school, highs, lows, I&#39;m-not-quitesure- what&#39;s, friends, random people who I&#39;ve never seen, and more! I&#39;ve moved around a lot back home in the states, but currently I live around the corner from Milwaukee, WI, and go to Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN where I study Mechanical Engineering and (for now at least) Communications Studies and anything else that&#39;s interesting. Now I&#39;ve gotta go and try and contain my excitement... I typically take headshots for other people, so a selfie will have to do...</p>
