Hugh Murray has been exploring connections between individuals, societies, the natural world, and the larger universe since studying the history and philosophy of science in college. For the past quarter century, he has worked as a lawyer helping to resolve workplace disputes, learning a lot along the way about how an individual’s place in our modern economy can overwhelm our true identities, and the importance of balancing the economic, physical, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of our being. Hugh has twice walked portions of the Camino de Santiago and looks forward to walking with, and learning from, a new group of pilgrims.


Jose Daniel Placer

A native of Santiago de Compostela, Jose received his law degree from the University of Santiago and then made a 180 degree turn away from being a lawyer and back to his real passion: children and the outdoors. He has taught outdoor education and coached soccer, basketball and volleyball. He runs the children’s theater program for the local school where he writes and directs the plays.

With Europe as his backyard, Jose has hiked extensively both within and beyond Spain since he was a teenager. Despite having enjoyed the Italian Dolomites, and hiking in the Alps while studying law at the University of Passau in Germany, his favorite stomping ground continues to be Spain’s Picos de Europa. He is the co owner of On Foot in Spain which leads walking tours of Spain.

Jose’s picnics have received tremendous praise over the years. When not on tour Jose lovingly tends his fruit orchard and garden and enjoys experimenting with new recipes from our own harvest.

Jose especially enjoys writing short stories, carpentry, restoring furniture, working his garden, kayaking and mountain biking.
