Two modern-day pilgrims are setting out to follow the trail from Wales to the Holy Land on foot. From the BBC article Cardiff 'troubabours' on 'Templar trail' to Jerusalem:
Two musicians aim to spend up to a year walking the 13th Century route to Jerusalem used by medieval pilgrims.
New Zealanders David Delia, 21, and Max Evenbly, 20, say they want to be modern-day troubadours on the 3,600-miles (5,800km) to Temple Mount.
They leave on Sunday, the 914th anniversary of the first crusade, but insist their mission is non-religious.
The Cardiff-based pair said: "After 65 years of European peace, it is time for this path to be walked again."
The first crusade had the aim of reclaiming Jerusalem and holy sites for the Christian church following an appeal in France by the Pope.
The friends aim to visit 13 countries on the "templar trail", the route to Jerusalem which the Knights Templar were charged with protecting.
