It seems to me (open for correction, I might add) that both the Spanish
and the Celts were subject to wanderlust:  wasn't it somewhat common for
a youth to take off on a great journey and return with his newfound
knowledge and experiences?  Just like many traditions, it must have
started with a single chance meeting, two people sharing a campfire and
companionship.  At least, this is my spur-of-the-moment theory!
