600km Walking Pilgrimage through Spain

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on September 2 2008

From the moment I discovered an ancient pilgrimage path in Spain in June last year, the attraction of walking hundreds of kilometres towards an assured destination grew on me daily. My eagerness to go on a month-long journey on foot across the steep slopes, lush valleys and forests of the Pyrenees, and through countless small towns and villages, was part of a subconscious quest to find depth and meaning in my life. At the age of 33, I was approaching – prematurely, perhaps – what seemed to be a mid-life crisis.

Letter from Quebec: Preserving Heritage

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on November 8 2008

'TRAVEL is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living,' wrote Miriam Beard. Life in Quebec is now my teacher, pointing out my knowledge gaps and honing my ideas of living - be it language, culture, life-skills, or the environment.

The end is near

Posted by Denise CHNG Lisan On Tuesday, October 16, 2007
I haven´t been able to find internet points in the mountain. And when I find one, it´s usually too late, or I´m too exhausted. I have lots to update and write about.....but will have to do so in four days when I reach Santiago. The road is more intense now covering more km in a day and with greater speed. I feel more fit than ever.

I have 90 km more to go and four more days. The end is near and I don´t want it to stop. I have met very special people who are now friends, friends whom I will continue to keep in touch.

I am safe and still having lots of joy on the journey.

with lots of love, and will write again soon.
