Their beautiful friendship will warm your heart
It's one of the most famous trails in the world, and Justin Skeesuck dreamed of experiencing it: the Camino de Santiago. Its signature trek, the French Way, spans 500 miles across the northern part of Spain, from France to the Atlantic Ocean.
Being in a wheelchair hardly dampened this desire. So he asked his best friend of 38 years, Patrick Gray, to help make it possible.
His response? "I'll push you."
Justin, a blogger who writes about accessibility while traveling, and Patrick, a registered nurse, are on their incredible journey right now. So far they've overcome a broken wheelchair part, hotels that aren't disability friendly, and incredibly difficult terrain. It's about the journey, though, and both friends have kept a positive attitude. They write about how grateful they are to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery, rich culture and hospitable new friends.
