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.

Sunday´s Pilgrim Mass

Posted by Denise CHNG Lisan On Saturday, October 20, 2007

Tomorrow is Sunday and I am looking forward to attending the Pilgrim´s mass in church. They read out the names of the pilgrims and state where they come from. At least for these few days, i am the only Singaporean on the camino. I am sure it is a very powerful experience for pilgrims.

I received my Compostelle today.....the certificate of completing this pilgrimage from the Pilgrim´s Office.

Here´s also my pilgrim´s "passport" all the stamps I collected from every place I´ve been to.
