“Island Pilgrim” is me, Vanessa Hammond. I am Irish but have had the joy of living in twelve countries

and working in many, many more, and having Canada as my home for most of past (no, not going to say

how many years!) But when we travel together as pilgrims to Ireland or elsewhere, or plan and

participate in events we are all Island Pilgrims. There is no formal organization, just people who delight

in things Irish, Scottish, Welsh, the Celtic areas of England, Brittany, Galacia in Spain. And it would be

great to explore the Isle of Man and Galatia in Turkey.
