Pilgrims of Spanish Antarctic Base Gabriel de Castilla

We could be, no doubt, to the longest pilgrimage of history ... no less than 14,700 kilometers. A pilgrimage will conclude on Thursday July 7 in Santiago de Compostela, which began last February 28 at the Spanish Antarctic Base Gabriel de Castilla, located on Deception Island in the archipelago of the South Shetland Islands. A group of scientists in military and residents said Spanish base, have gone through almost the entire Atlantic Ocean to land in Pontevedra (in the day) and complete this huge trip to Santiago. In fact, they themselves are considered "pingüirinos", a curious adjective and probably understandable.

The group consists of the provision of military Oceanographic Research Ship Hesperides, staff of the Antarctic Campaign Army, scientists, members of the National Geographic Institute and members of the Spanish Federation of Friends of the Camino de Santiago. On Thursday, after arriving in Santiago, a ceremony will be held at the Hostal de los Reyes Catholics at lunchtime, with the presence of the president of the Xunta, Alberto Nunez Feijoo, and the mayor of Santiago, Martiño Noriega.

Madre del amor hermoso. Si no lo hicieron más largo es porque desde la luna no se puede venir a la tierra caminando. Menudos cracks.

¿Y cuál era el objetivo? Supongo que algo hicieron durante el trayecto, divulgarlo por los sitios donde pasaban o algo.

Pues supongo que salir en todos los medios y dar a conocer el Camino, ya que entre los miembros de la expedición están miembros de la Federación Española de Asociaciones de Amigos del Camino de Santiago

Menos mal que no tienen que hacer esos 14 mil a pie XD

Pero la verdad es que este tipo de noticias son realmente curiosas, y mis felicitaciones para ellos... Quizás sí sea el Camino más largo nunca hecho. Al menos creo que nunca se ha salido desde la Antártida.
