Pilgrimage is about engaging with a place and its people in a way that is different from a tour. Both have their place. On pilgrimage we pause, take time to reflect and to ask questions. Pilgrimage is a spiritual experience, often transformative, sometime uncomfortable.
As one recent pilgrim said: ”Pilgrimage takes you into the experience, and into the life of the person the place is about”. This echoes what one ancient pilgrim said: “Others merely hear, we see and touch.” And we do.
