126 days…

It is May 1st - "Lá Bealtaine" in Irish.  May Day officially heralds the beginning of the summer and the powers that be have granted us a day off from work. Gracias a ellos! "Lá Bealtaine" derives from the Old Irish words "Bel taine" meaning 'bright fire'. Many people say summer doesn't start until June... Continue Reading →

Don’t Stop Walking – Season Two

I'm a big fan of Andrew Suzuki's work on the Camino de Santiago. His two series - Don't Stop Walking and Beyond The Way have been massive hits over on Facebook. We have already been treated to Season One of Don't Stop Walking, which is a pilgrim's guide to the Camino de Santiago. A handy... Continue Reading →

Astorga becomes Logrono….

I'm not naturally unpredictable but after a few days thinking, I have thrown a curveball at my plans for September. Alas, I have decided to shift the starting point of September Camino to La Rioja and Logrono. Logrono is a lovely city and like Astorga, there is plenty to see and do. I will have ten days...

A Long Flat Walk…

Boom! I've gotten my first training walk done and dusted. I am going in the right direction now. I had many a cobweb to shake off after my stay in hospital but it was good to take part in this one and with many great people. As I have mentioned before, I am part of... Continue Reading →

So…where were we?

Hi folks..I'm back. I find it hard to believe it is a month since I put finger to keypad and wrote. I guess life got in the way. I keep meaning to sign in, say hello to everyone and then sign out, but that is a little too much like facebook. I even forgot my... Continue Reading →

Ups and downs..

Hi all. A few things have happened since my last post. Not only have I become accustomed to the move, but I also have paid my deposit. No going back now. I have decided to do the Spanish evening course also. That will be on Monday nights. Apparently the course is entirely in Spanish and... Continue Reading →

The other side of the coin…

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 days since I said goodbye to my Camino buds. They are pretty close to Santiago at this stage, under the 50km mark, and... Continue Reading →
