My first Camino de Santiago was in June 2011 when I walked from Sarria to Santiago. Since then, I have returned to Spain or Portugal each year to walk one of the routes to Santiago. I hope you enjoy my posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them. 

An Introduction...

The Camino Francés (or French Way) is the most popular of all the Camino routes to Santiago de Compostela. There are many other routes however. My first experience of the Camino Francés was in 2011 when I walked from Sarria to Santiago. It was an eye-opener for me as I hadn’t been to Spain before nor had I experienced the Spanish culture. Walking 100 kilometres was a huge achievement also at that time as I was not properly prepared nor had I the same appreciation of what the Camino was before I left for Spain. You can read about my first experience in Spain in my conversation with Maria over on

Ever since I have been going back year on year and walking for a few weeks. You can read how I got on by clicking any of the following links:
