Joao Pateira's 800 Kilometer tour through Spain
I first did the Camino de Santiago in 2011 and I recall someone telling me that “If you do it once you will end up coming back.” And so it happened that I went back in 2013 and 2016.
When Jeroen contacted me with the idea for this project I immediately said yes.
Over the years I have worked with people with different types of disabilities. Having been a guide for blind athletes and witnessing first-hand how having the right conditions can bring out the potential in people, I believe the ultimate goal of this project has the potential to change lives.
And what greater deed can a person aspire to than to create the conditions to change someone’s life for better?
