Camino Maltes/ Universal Peace Walk 1543AD: A Cambridge dictionary definition of “Off with a Bang!” explains an event as , “very exciting and successful.” This aptly describes the Camino Maltés / Universal Peace Walk 1543AD®event on Sunday, 12th March.
The reason why it was so positive, very exciting and successful boils down to the participation and lively interaction of each and every one of you. It was so heartening watching pilgrim-hikers making new friends. Everybody, irrespective of age, nationality, gender or social strata blended into one group of pilgrims fixed more on enjoying the journey than reaching the destination (which we all also did eventually).
