Thank you to the countless pilgrims who posed in front of my camera, the hospitaleros who gave me a place to sleep, Christian and Babsi for putting up with me for so many days and forcing me to cook something healthy when all I wanted to do was buy some french fries and go to sleep.

Thank you to Jackson and Sasha for keeping me sane and giving me advice on basically everything.

Thank you to my sister Whitney for letting me vent on the phone whenever the slightest thing went wrong.

Thank you to Kelsey Breck and Patty Higgins for giving me the motivational kick I needed to pursue this project in the first place.

Thank you to Andrew, Katrina, Jon, Riley, Matt, and the rest of the Nomadique crew for providing endless advice on equipment and content.

Thank you to Zubin Hensler for writing the perfect musical companion to this project and to Rebekah Durham, Troy Chang, and Gabriel Gall for lending their talents and voices.

Thank you to Kathryn Appleton and the French Institute:Alliance Française for providing French lessons that helped me to survive.

Thank you to Hannah, Lars, Tine, Mikkel, Mira, Maks, Célia, Marius, and Babsi for housing me as I toured Europe in search of pilgrim's stories.

Thank you to Daniel Seung Lee, Samantha Siegel, Bekah Holloway, Ryan Davidson, Noah Wagner, David McTiernan, and Jacob Blumberg for helping me edit down this mountain of content.
