On Friday, May 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Incline Village Library, local resident Barbara Longshore will present ‘My Pilgrimage on the Camino,” highlighting her recent journey across Northern Spain.

People from all over the world walk the 500 miles, or portions of the Camino, to end up in Santiago de Compostela, Longshore said.

“An ancient pathway to St James takes you through small towns and prominent cities,” she said. “The terrain varies which challenges the pilgrim physically, mentally and spiritually.”

In her presentation, Longshore said she will share the experience of preparation through the journey.
