Weekend Watch #44 – Burgos to Hontanas

I hope you are having a good weekend. I have finally reached 50 in this series. And I mark this occasion by posting a quick video about my favourite 30km stretch on the Camino Frances - from Burgos to Hontanas and the start of the meseta. This pilgrim even stopped at the same cafes as... Continue Reading →

Home..but still on the Way..

My feet are in Dublin but my mind has been left somewhere between Leon and Astorga on the dusty trail. Sigh!

It is a part of Spain known among pilgrims... Continue Reading →

Throwback Thursday #1
