A Pilgrim Love Story
By Loni Bergqvist
I’m from California and walked the Camino Francés in 2013. On my way into Burgos, I met Kjartan from Denmark. We started talking and spent the next day together. We ended up walking to Santiago and he proposed when we arrived. 🙂 We were married six months later, and we now live in Denmark with our daughter and a baby due next month. The Camino continues to provide our little family with surprises, love and happiness.
We made these videos that tell our story for our wedding celebration, it’s called A Pilgrim Love Story and it’s in five short parts.
On August 9th 2014, Kjartan and I celebrated our marriage on my family farm in Neshkoro, Wisconsin. We called it a pilgrim wedding in honor of the Camino de Santiago, where we met. It was officiated by our Camino friend, Liz from Canada, who we also walked with. View photos from our wedding celebration.
We hope you enjoy!

I am featuring Camino love stories on this blog. Why? Because love is in the air! I certainly respect the premise of what happens on the Camino stays on the Camino. However, love is a splendid thing that should be celebrated. Has the Camino provided you with more than just a long walk? If you have a Camino love story to share, email me or use the form below. Photos and video links welcome.
Share the Camino love! ♥
