A tree on The Way
This autumn is sad for Galicia and Asturias (Spain) and for northern Portugal. A plague of fires, most of them provoked, have ravaged their forests, taking also human lives . What recently were incredible landscapes of great beauty today are the reflection of desolation. Thousands of acres have been grazed by flames.
In Spain there is a popular phrase that says that “de bien nacido es ser agradecido” (it is a trait of the high-born to be grateful,). At Excellence the Club we know how to be and we want to be grateful for a land that gives us incredible experiences to offer our clients.
That is why we want to allocate part of the benefits that we get with all the experiences related to the Camino de Santiago that we sell during the remainder of this year and all of 2018 to help the reforestation of the areas burned in these lamentable fires.
For now, we are going to start formal talks with the Xunta de Galicia and the Principality of Asturias in order to formalize this proposal and adapt it to the specific needs of each zone. We also hope to do so with the Portuguese authorities. Once these are clear we will present them and tell you how you can collaborate with this initiative.
