I didn’t pay much attention to music during my time in Spain. It didn’t bother me. Before I left, I spent hours working on a playlist on my iPhone. I had this […]
Hi. I'm David and welcome to the Clearskies Camino blog. I live in Dublin, Ireland and have walked a number of pilgrimages including the Camino Francés and Camino Portugués.
My love for writing began on returning from my 2nd Camino de Santiago in June 2012. I had been writing a journal while on the Camino Francés and it made sense to write my thoughts online. As the Camino became more of my life, so did the urge to give something back.

I have been on the Camino Frances three times now. I suppose one of the first things I decide on before going is “which way do I go”. Well, there are plenty […]
I’ve uploaded a bunch of photos from my time on the Camino and if you would like to browse through some of them, just click on the below link http://is.gd/rn0x14 There are […]
I think it’s time to park the Camino to one side and get on with my so called life. It has been a week since I touched down in Dublin and 8 […]
I will post my photos and clips on my Picasa account later this week, but here are some photos that stand out for me. An eerie quiet Logrono street as I start […]
