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.

The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage but in my eyes, it is so much more. It is a great way of meeting people and a great way of getting away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life.

This is what you get when you shoot a scene from Die Hard or Mission Impossible in Dublin city. I vaguely remember hearing of a film crew shooting a scene here but […]
I reguarly receive spam posts which are blocked from my blog. Some are trying to sell me something, others are asking me to visit their virus-ridden website. However, this one just made […]
It’s the time of the year when music and film gurus sit down and create lists of their favourite films and songs or albums. Most I take with a grain of salt […]
I have four things going on at the moment..each in my mind at one point of the day. The thing is, I don’t know what is priority. Maybe you guys can help: […]
