I have read many books about the Camino but his book "Walk with the Sun Til Ur Shadow disappears" stands out... Continue Reading →
This week the Irish Independent published an article about Galicia, stating that there are lots more to do there than walking the Camino. This may well be true. Take a read when you get a chance. Gorgeous Galicia: Why autumn is the time to visit Spain's northern star
I published the first in this series last week and have got a great response so far. It was great to receive Linda's contribution and I'd like to thank her for that. This week, I posed the same questions to a great couple who write over on wisemonkeysabroad.com. Le and David love to travel and... Continue Reading →
You know you have an addiction on your hands when you find yourself wandering on the Camino de Santiago on Google street view. If you have time on your hands, it is possible to "walk" vast chunks of the Camino from the safety of your living room. It is far less exciting, for sure, but... Continue Reading →
It's the weekend again and it is that time of the week to post another clip from YouTube. Two guys start out in Logrono and finish in Santiago. I like the music too. Give it a watch if you have some time. You can also find my Camino de Santiago playlist here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hXiTN_DtVE If you... Continue Reading →

Some of you may know this image from my twitter profile but if not, there is no need to worry. These two chaps are laying in wait for you on the road from Burgos. I saw this back in 2013 pointing me to Santiago.
I love reading people’s Top 10 memories after walking a Camino. This one from Le & David brings back lots of memories. Looking forward to going back soon.
It’s almost been a year since we embarked on the journey of a lifetime.
Before we started the Way of St James (also known as The Way or the Camino de Santiago), we had no idea what impact it would have on us; almost 365 days on, we can tell you.

We may have completed it but it never leaves us, not even for a moment. Today we read an article over at Camino Adventures where the author shared his top 10 things about the Camino de Santiago. And maybe it’s because we are almost celebrating our Camino anniversary that we shed a…

There are so many top ten tips and how-to's out there that it is hard to link them here. I think this article written in April 2015 by Peter Murtagh is one of the better one's. Ten steps to taking on the Camino to Santiago de Compostela
One of my favourite sections on the Camino Frances is the walk between Astorga to Rabanal del Camino. The Leon hills are covered in green, and bruised with purple and yellow heather. It is almost dream-like. I can't wait to go back and take in those sights again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=42&v=YdGMW0MoSfM If you enjoyed this post let... Continue Reading →
