Uploaded on YouTube in the last few days, here is a video from a pilgrim who has walked from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago during Covid times. You will agree that it is beautifully shot.
Santiago puts on the best celebrations. Lucky pilgrims!
It was May 2019. It felt like a lifetime ago. Myself and my brother started out from Ferrol at the end of May and a few days later walked into Santiago having detoured to A Coruna. It was a short sweet Camino and one I would love to walk again, but maybe from Ferrol.
Efren, who makes quality videos from the Camino, walked from Ferrol one week before we started out. He starts out from Ferrol here but below is a summary of his 5 day trip to Santiago.
Definitely one to walk instead of the hustle and bustle of Sarria. Enjoy.
It is the weekend again and Efren is back with another offering of Camino goodness. He has already completed his Camino del Norte and Camino Ingles and he is putting all his thoughts and words in video form. Although I have not yet walked from Irun, walking with Efren brings back so many memories. Memories with other pilgrims I have met along the way. Whether that be a simple hello passing by, or having a meal in the local cafe after a day’s walk, all these memories stick.
Efren will be uploading his walk from Ferrol in the coming days so I will be watching with interest.
I remember starting out on my Weekend Watch adventure back in 2015. My goal was to give you one video about the Camino per week, one video from the (literally) hundreds of uploaded content on YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. With this milestone, I am going to give you 4 because you are worth it….and because I have a little extra time on my hands! So here goes.
There is something I can’t put my finger on in Andrew’s videos. He has a great way with words and it is not something you see or hear in other Camino videos. It is almost poetic. Meeting his first pilgrims makes me want to pick up my pack and walk a few kilometres but then I realise we are in the middle of an emergency.
2. Pilgrims documentary by Alexandre Amaral
An hour long, Pilgrims traces a number of peregrinos along the Camino Frances and asks them the important questions. Who are the pilgrims? And why do they walk? It is an intriguing watch and makes you look for more.
3. Efren – Güemes to Boó de Piélagos – Camino del Norte
Another typical Efren video with superb camera work and breathtaking views along the Northern Way. I don’t know what else I can say, but you need to watch his videos 🙂
4. Camino Conversations – John Brierley
Finally, we have an interesting conversation between Ivar Revke who is based in Santiago and John Brierley, who needs no introduction. Ivar runs Casa Ivar & Camino forum over at www.caminodesantiago.me/community.
