I'm confused. You asked if someone could translate "the following". There was nothing following... Did you mean your entire message?
I did not walk the Camino de Santiago, but I was there in July and it is certainly something that I would like to do too. Santiago is beautiful, vibrant and full of things to do. I attended the pilgrim's mass at 12:00 N and even though I'm not Roman Catholic, I was very moved by the experience. The music, the homily, the worshippers and the sense of accomplishment surrounding me was inspiring. They swung the botafumeiro when I was there and that was awesome too!
I'm sure that there are books about walking the Camino and some with experience who would be happy to share their experience with you. Most of the pilgrims I saw in Santiago (and other cities like León) were dressed in modern hiking gear, backpacks, boots and using metal walking sticks. I don't think anyone in his right mind would try it wearing a hooded cloak, a stick and a gourd these days! Good luck and best wishes!
