Weekend Watch #50 – Camino de Santiago from above

I was volunteering for Camino Society Ireland at their information centre in Dublin again today. When I volunteer, I start to think ahead about possible routes to take in the future. There are too many I have yet to look into, but the Camino de Madrid and Camino del Norte will keep me occupied for... Continue Reading →

Weekend Watch #49 – León Cathedral

While Santiago Cathedral is under refurbishment, pilgrims may look to other cathedrals for solace. While León Cathedral is undergoing work it is open to the public and I have always enjoyed visiting it. The same goes for Burgos and Astorga. It's been over 2 years since I have been to León and although I have... Continue Reading →

Daily Costs On The Camino

I haven't written about the topic of costs on the Camino before so I thought I would dive into my experiences with money over the last number of years. It's important to start out by saying that everyone's experience is different. You may choose to avoid albergues and have a more comfortable Camino, thereby increasing... Continue Reading →

What’s Next?

It is a little too soon to talk about next year's Camino before I have taken my first step from Ferrol but the purpose of this post is to let you know what routes I would like to walk in the near future. I won't give any dates as I have no plans made other... Continue Reading →

10 days before i leave….

I don't have long left. My first trip to Spain this year is within touching distance. The countdown is close to single digits. But I'm far less prepared than before. Is this a sign of an experienced pilgrim or just someone who has other things on his mind? A little bit of both, to be... Continue Reading →
