About

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.

My love for writing began once I returned from my 2nd jaunt on the Camino Francés in June 2012. I had been keeping journal while walking and it only made sense to write my thoughts and post my photos online. As the Camino de Santiago slowly became a part of my life, so did the urge to give something back. Here I am today!

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.

There are many Caminos to Santiago from all across Europe, but my experiences have mainly been on the Caminos in Spain and Portugal, ending at the shrine of St. James in the city of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
