After writing my last post, there has been progress, my good friends. I have managed to get this podcast off the ground and it is online ready for all for listen. I have recorded with Skype and ran with Anchor.fm. Anchor not only publish the podcast but send it to all the main listening platforms,... Continue Reading →
Do you want to share your Camino experience?
I think it is no secret that I wish to create a podcast to help others (and in turn myself) get ready for a trip to Spain / Portugal. I have all the necessary equipment and I hope to have the first episode uploaded shortly. Over the coming weeks, I am looking to talk to... Continue Reading →
September memories & what could have been?
For those on Social media, it's usual to receive the daily update reminding you what you were doing on this date X number of years ago. Whether it be on Facebook, Instagram or on Google Photos, each day without fail a notification is sent. In that notification is a distraction from what is going on... Continue Reading →
As we enter a new season, I thought I would write a post just to keep you in the loop with things in my part of the world. It is a public holiday here in Ireland and it is gorgeous outside. Blue skies everywhere. It's just unfortunate we can only wander 5km from our household.... Continue Reading →
Reliving May’s memories
Most years in the month of May, you would find me in Spain or Portugal walking. Not this month. Or even not this year. Instead I am looking back on old trips. I find it is a suitable replacement. 2011 - I was preparing for my first trip, walking from Sarria on the first week... Continue Reading →
Another week of lock-in over and some thoughts..
Well, that week has flown by. It has been seven days since my last post and my great intentions of writing everyday have well and truly been left by the wayside. I am still here however. Hanging in and hanging on and counting my blessings. The date of May 5th looms large but I don't... Continue Reading →
Another week closer…an early start and some videos
T minus 18 days Well that week flew by. I have been busily entertaining myself with work and keeping myself indoors. We have been encouraged to stay indoors until May 5th and while that may seem a long time away, I choose to keep busy and let time do the work. I woke up at... Continue Reading →
Weekend Watch #68 – The Journey
When I discovered the Camino de Santiago nearly 10 years ago, this was one of the first videos on YouTube I found and I was enthralled by the photos. This slideshow was created by a Belfast man who walked the Camino Frances in 2007. The music is apt, considering we are approaching March 17th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS_UVpBLTtw...

Weekend Watch #66 – The Sounds of the Camino
What do you get when you just listen when you walk on Camino...I guess you get silence...and a lot of the sounds of nature. This video has all of that. If you haven't walked the Camino, it is worth a watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4HOp9ZtMkg With thanks to Busybird Publishing on YouTube.
Towns Along The Way – “N-P”
It’s been a while since I wrote about the various towns that line the Camino Frances. In my last update, I talked about the towns of Maneru, Melide, Molinaseca, Manjarin, and Mansilla de las Mulas. Molinaseca is a favourite of mine. In this post, I’ll talk about some more towns. Again, if you have stayed... Continue Reading →
