Movie Recommendation - The Way

I have always wanted to take a walking holiday - my dream trip is a coastal English walk, however, ever since I read Paulo Coehlo's "The Pilgrimage"  about a year ago I have been rather intrigued with The Camino de Santiago de Compostela, also known as The Way of St. James.  

So a few weeks ago I saw a promo for "The Way" by Emilio Estevez, starring Martin Sheen, and realizing it was about "The Camino",  I added it to my mental watch list.


Then other night as I was flipping through Netflix, what pops up in my movies you will like section - you got it "The Way".  I took it as a sign and started the movie rolling.

So needless to say I really enjoyed the movie.  The characters were nicely balanced - annoying yet lovable and one of my favorite French Actors has a small role which warmed my heart.

If you find yourself intrigued by the thought of Walking the Camino de Santiago this is a great blog full of information.

I think I have two walk tours to contemplate (Although riding a bike might be the better option on this one).

Sounds like a good movie. We watched Ice Age 4. In 3D. I want my $38 bucks back. :)
