We are all aware at this stage of the very sad news of the recovery of Denise Thiem's body in Spain. After I heard that she was missing, a part of me knew that she was safe and well but the longer time went on, the hope of finding Denise dwindled. I walked through the... Continue Reading →
After having the weekend and Monday off, I was greeted by the below picture at my desk. I'm beginning to get a reputation in work!
So we completed our talk..and it was a tremendous success. It was on Saturday night in Herbertstown Hall, Limerick and we had an attendance of 60 people from the locality. The advertising poster stated that those giving the talk were veteran pilgrims with the aim of passing on information to get people on "their way".... Continue Reading →

I remember taking this shot after a walk from Atapuerca in May 2015. It was very warm and I was waiting, with many other pilgrims, for the albergue to open. Burgos is a major city on the Camino and there is nothing finer than it's Cathedral. Here it is in all it's glory.

There are also guides, written to help future pilgrims. I usually get recommendations from Amazon and read them on Kindle. Here are some of... Continue Reading →
Happy Weekend folks and I hope you are having a good one. The sun is out here in Dublin and if it remains the same tomorrow, I'm seriously tempted to head for the hills. Anyway, my next Weekend Watch is from Carl Pople. He walked in May and June of this year, around the same... Continue Reading →
I was just putting the final touches to part of our Camino talk (which is on the 11th of September) and came across this verse. It is actually taken from a YouTube video, made by Andrew Suzuki...the same man who has created the brilliant "Don't Stop Walking" and "Beyond the Way" series. I thought I'd write it...
