Le Puy-en-Velay is situated in a setting that is uniquely beautiful and almost surreal. The town is also known as one of the four official starting points in France of Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. Although a journey on the Camino de Santiago Compostela can be made from anywhere in Europe, I have heard that the one starting here is more interesting for pilgrims as the path passes through villages with the best-preserved Romanesque churches.
I am pleased that this painting, depicting a panoramic view of Le Puy, is featured in the latest issue of DestinAsian (Dec/Jan 2012), the premier magazine of luxury travel and fine living in the Asia Pacific region. My interview about a personal pilgrimage I made to Le Puy is also included. Click here to read the article (in pdf file).
"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!" - Bob Marley, singer-songwriter
