Wow. My last Weekend Watch was posted on March 14th. To make up for lost time, here are 2 videos with the Camino theme. The first is from Camino podcaster and musician Dan Mullins who has released this song “Somewhere along the Way”. Much of the footage was shot along the Camino Frances. See if you recognise where. The second video was produced by Irish filmmaker Tom Quinlan. He walked the final week into Santiago in May 2017 and he recorded his experiences. The end result is effective.
In this Weekend Watch, we vicariously walk from Porto to Santiago on the Caminho Portugues. Although I won’t be walking the full way from Porto, I will pick up at the Spanish border at A Guarda. I look forward to it.
These two guys from the US take a look back a year after completing the Camino Frances.
Another amazing video by a pilgrim from YouTube. I really enjoyed this and it brought back a lot of memories. Lots of smiles too! 🙂
Maggie Woodward is no stranger to this blog and has contributed a number of times. She regularly posts on her own blog – Trepidatious traveller, and I would encourage any future pilgrim to read through her posts for information.
This April, Maggie walked near to 1000km through 4 Caminos – no mean feat. The 4 routes were the Camino Madrid from Madrid to Sahagun, Camino San Salvador from Leon to Oviedo, Camino Primitivo from Oviedo to Santiago and finally on to the coast on the Camino Finisterre. You can read daily updates on her blog.
However, Maggie put together a video on YouTube showing how she got on. Great viewing and some of these routes are the future.
It’s been quite a while since I posted a Weekend Watch, so now is a great time to post one of the best videos I have seen. I’ll be honest with you but I wasn’t far from shedding a tear around the 1 minute mark. It confirms my belief that the Camino is much much more than just a walk. Enjoy!
Ok it’s not the weekend just yet, but I thought it’s a great time to start posting some great Camino videos from YouTube. This one is less than 2 months old and has already over 8,000 views. Hopefully one day I will be able to post a video as half as good as this. Props to Anna. She seems to have had a blast.
