Arno Cuppen

With Huberta, my wife, and a lot of other volunteers I run the pilgrims hostel "L'Esprit du Chemin" in the hamlet of Le Chemin (= the way!), near Vézelay (France). (Before that we ran a pilgrims hostel with the same name in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port).
Vézelay was a major milestone on my own Camino, in 1999, from Holland to Santiago de Compostela and Fisterra.
Besides running the hostel we still like to take to the road, as pilgrims. For instance: from 2009 we walked in four stages from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port direction Jerusalem. In 2012 we almost reached the Turkish-Syrian border. One day we hope to be able to continue, not so much for ourselves but mainly because it would mean there would be peace again in Syria.
