BASQUE COUNTRY

“The Basque are not Mediterranean, alpine, Magyar, Celtic, Germanic, Semitic, nor Scandinavian, nor are they Arian. Nobody knows who their ancestors were. They are aborigines. They speak their own strange language from unknown origins”

Orson Welles – Around the World – 1955 for the BBC

PYRENEES

“…if all went well, they were handed over to the Dutch resistance network to direct them south along the “Freedom path”, crossing the Pyrenees mountains, and reaching the north of Spain”

Time Magazine
The Resistance during World War II

WAY OF SAINT JAMES

“Honor your path. It was your choice, it was your decision and in the same way you respect the path you walk on, the path will respect your feet”

Paulo Coelho – The Pilgrim of Compostela

THE WORLD

“The best that the world has is in the many worlds that the world contains, the different music of life, its pains & colors: the thousand and one ways of living and saying, believing and creating, eating, working, dancing, playing, love, suffer and celebrate.”

Eduardo Galeano – Uruguayan writer
